I was driving home yesterday and I was looking at the trees, watching the trees sway. It was magical.
I just don’t notice the small things. I need to stop whisking through life. I will admit that I am not an observant person. You can be my own mother who I see everyday and I just don’t notice her small changes to her image. Her hair is brown and she could dye it black and I would never notice until she said, “Can you tell I dyed my hair?” Then I stupidly act all, oh yea I noticed. And then I gotta kiss her ass til kingdom come And quite honestly I didn’t notice. I am horrible. However that’s for another post and another day.
I now realize it is too important to not notice things… it’s too important to rush around. Because I am missing the world. And isn’t the world grand? It is except if you are a cockroach. Everyone hates you then.
Wonderful things are happening all around me. And I am missing them. My eyes are up here and not down here. I need to look down and around. I am walking around like I have blinders on.
This post is inspired by my brother-in-law. He was stopping, taking in the air, smelling the roses. And you know what he found?!?! $100! Yep! Do you know how ecstatic I would be to find a dollar?!!? Yet he found $100!
So I learned my lesson. My eyes are now focused on the ground. I am going to listen to every rustle in the wind. I am going to search endlessly for my heart’s desire. I am not going to leave one stone unturned. I am going to look a second time, a third time. Cause it just might be my bank waiting for me!
And yea yea sure I’ll smell a few weeds here and there. Cause some of them are green and are good camouflage for dollar bills ya’ll!
I am glad I had this epiphany… cause life is just to short to miss the important things.
