I often sit around whilst waiting for meetings and just look at my surroundings. This is pretty normal, most people do this, but how many people let their mind wander while doing it. You might be looking, but you’re not seeing.
Your mind is off down a rabbit hole of imagination and fantasy. This is sometimes a good thing, but it’s only when you are really present and know what that feels like, that you realise how we pop in and out of reality constantly during the day.
Today is a nice warm day, and there is nothing better than really feeling and paying attention to the warmth on my skin and listening the the birds in the trees. All these things would be missed if I wasn’t paying attention to the world.
