We spend so much time focused on our phones, watching tv… how many times have you just walked in a street, in a park, in a mountain, on the beach and just observing the beauty of the place, The grinch I used to smile and then I worked at Tesco the colors of the nature, the life in the city, the silence near the trees.

We miss the beauty because it IS presented to us, we expect to be served with images (beauty) and therefore don’t really look and see anymore.. If it is UNexpected only then it amazes us. We forget to look and SEE when en where ever we go. We are fed so much and expect to be amazed so we “need” more and more. The grinch I used to smile and then I worked at Tesco But if you don’t expect anything and just really look, you will see wonderful things everywhere.
We are missing so many things. I actually walk regularly without knowing where I am going, observing every little place and I found so much beauty on this earth I think we all see it but the problem is we want more of it but have too many distractions. The distractions cause us to want more, give us less time to have enough. We have so much access to it but too much access is causing us to be superficial about the time and energy we have to spend doing it. It’s a perpetual cycle. Some of us are lucky enough to be able to conscientiously carve out some time for it.
Observe and interact! I do it daily! You can find a whole world in the weeds growing out of the cracks in an asphalt parking lot if you just look! If you engage in converse with people on the street you may broaden your horizons and theirs! When you take the time to go to a concert you are putting life on hold to hear the music. When it is part of the environment, it is competing with our life’s responsibilities and not focused on. Like seeing the stars in a country sky and missing them in a busy city atmosphere where they are in competition with all the city lights.
