The sun is shining and there is a hint of Autmum magic in the air… Hard not to be inspired to write when the earth just keeps on giving reasons to be cheerful…
 
Todays Blog… One that could help everyone find a little more love in their hearts, simply by saying “Thank you…” It is all a little Bean Thinking inspired…
 
“This life can be consuming, moments run away with us all at times. As the world spins and the clock ticks and we are all caught up in the flow of the river of “normaldom”!!
 
Stop. Take a breath. Leap out of the river. Get away from the crowds. Look up from where you are sitting. Take a moment to look aways from the books, the screens and the floor and for a second simply notice!!!
 
Notice how blue the sky is, how fresh the air in your nostrils!! Notice the crunch of the leaves under your feet. The way the dew gets caught in the cob webs. Notice the birds taking flight in the whispers of the breeze. The sounds of their songs celebrating life. Notice the taste of the coffee and the sweetness of the cake! Notice the changing colours in the tree tops, how red and pink and orange it glows. Notice your friends smiles, your loved ones laughter. Notice the music and the magic and the wonder that all this life bestows upon us and notice how bloody lucky we are…
 
You don’t need an endless supply of money, to see, to smell, to hear, to taste, to live, to love all this extraordinary ordinariness…
 
It is so easy to get lost in the routine. To become another pair of feet upon the treadmill… But you do have the power to open your hearts, minds and eyes to all that there is in this life to be grateful for… All these ordinary miracles that make this life so precious…
 
It is so easy to take it all for granted too. We are all so caught up in our own minds and lives we forget to notice the people in our lives who colour all this abundance with love and laughter. We berate our husbands, our wives, our children for falling short of our expecaions. We criticise and chastise the messy rooms, the spilt milk, the late hour of their return…
 
But… What if we flipped our reality? Instead of seeing all that is wrong with our lives, we saw all that was right…? People have lost sight of the sunshine. It seems it is more appropriate to spend our time moaning about everyone, and everything that is wrong with our lives. Instead of celebrating all that is right… Why not say “thank you”… When your husband or wife comes home from the office, instead of “why are you so late?” Why not say, “I’ve had a brilliant day”, instead of “I am so tired”… Why not say “I am brilliant!!” when someone asks “How are you?”
 
So for today, make a pledge… To look up, to notice and to be thankful to our world…. For all the ordinary wonder we have in our lives… And whisper thank you to each other too!!!”
 
Look after yourselves

Look after each other
 
Love and light
