"When I stopped to pay attention to where my breathing was deep and settled, the truth began to emerge from the mist."
~ Betsy C. Garmon ~
Someone the other day recommended to a group I was in that we actively participate in "elegant noticing." I love the term and I love the concept. What a wonderful way to say it! Be present; be aware; pay attention. That's the point.
There is so much grace and beauty and fine distinction in life, and all of it can be easily overlooked and completely missed. Let's choose instead to notice everything: the details, the intricacies, the colors, textures, sounds and feelings. Life is a rich and spectacular affair if we do.
I actively practice elegant noticing.
