Keep Your Eyes Open
These mushroom, found on a pile of wood chips in my yard, reminded me to keep my eyes open and watch for opportunities. Opportunities are everywhere.
Slow down. Build systems or activities in your life that allow your brain to catch up to the fast pace of this world we live in today. This SmartPhone Photo Blog does that for me. I have to stop and look for things. I don’t just take them for granted now because I have set a goal to find and share interesting things. Small things. Detailed things. Thoughtful things.
“If, then, I were asked for the most important advice I could give, that which I considered to be the most useful to the men of our century, I should simply say: in the name of God, stop a moment, cease your work, look around you.”
