Let the Beauty of what you Love be what you Do...

Note to Self... Pay Attention

"For Lack of attention, a thousand forms of loveliness elude us everyday..."

                          ~Evelyn Underhill

I once dated this guy who used to say to me, "I love how you see the things that I would miss."
I'd like to think, in general, I'm pretty good about appreciating the small things, and finding beauty in the world. I have to admit, though... sometimes I get a bit too worried about the future, about how I want my life to be... that sometimes I miss where I am presently. This is simply my "note to self" to pay attention, so as not to miss the loveliness that is present everyday.

That is a beautiful thing to have said to you. Many of us miss the beauty in our surroundings, I don't think you will miss it.

very nice picture, and beautiful post. Indeed the magic lives in all places, things and people, big and small.

I like this, Becky - something I tell myself, too. Life is short, and we must pay attention.

I know what you mean. Staying in the present is a mantra I continually try to adhere to.
