Paying Attention

When I slow down long enough to smell the roses, I usually see the beauty and all else that is ours to share.

-Morgan Jennings

The greatest gift we can give ourselves and others is our complete attention, as the saying goes. This resonates with me because I’ve begun a daily meditation practice that is making me more aware of the moment I’m in and the fact that it is one-of-a-kind and unique, never to be experienced again. I missed so much subtle beauty because of my former attitude toward life. Life really is what you make it – it can be a terrible chore with few and far between moments of joy, or it can be a continual process of gradual awakening and learning.

The choice is yours.
