MORNING THOUGHTS ☕️:
“Stop LOOKING and start SEEING.”
I remember that statement being said to me like it was yesterday even though it was probably 12 years ago. I have no idea who the woman was and had never had a conversation with her. I had not seen her before and have not seen her since. She simply came up to me and said that. It’s a profound statement and one that I have repeated to myself through the years. When I get busy looking I stop and say it out loud...it gets me back to SEEING.
When we are constantly LOOKING it creates chaos and confusion in our lives. It can create comparison, sense of lack, dissatisfaction and turmoil. It can keep us on the track and belief system that what we “need” is out THERE somewhere and we are looking for IT and when we find IT, then, alas, we will be happy.
The TRUTH is that when we STOP looking and START seeing what IS, what we have, what we’ve been gifted, what is beautiful and lovely and already there...when we open our eyes to actually SEE...we can begin to live fully. Fully present. Fully grateful. Fully aware of what is right in front of our faces.
Today, may we stop LOOKING and start SEEING all that’s in front of faces faces…gifted to us by God.
