Life seems to pass by us so quickly and we are all so busy in our everyday lives that we sometimes forget to stop for a moment and take a look around to see what is going on all around us. I want to talk to you today about awareness and gratitude because from having various conversations with my friends i realised that i was not very aware of things so i decided to set myself a challenge for 30 days i would email a friend every day telling her what i was aware of. When i first started doing the challenge i was not sure if i would find things to be aware of. It made me think somedays it was little things like i was aware that a butterfly flew past me, that my favourite word is flutterbye. The challenge made me stop and think and it made me aware of things like i was not a great sleeper, i fidget a lot, i can’t sit still for a long, i drink far too much caffeine, i don’t drink enough water during the day i could go on the list is endless as there are so many things to be aware of so much so that i write of journal of everything that i am aware on a daily basis. I have discovered that gratitude and awareness go side by side as you will find that you are aware for being grateful for something like being grateful for hearing the birds sing or even that you are grateful for your imagination or that you are grateful for having great friends. It is days when things are not going the way it should that you should stop what you are doing and think about what you are either aware of or what you are grateful as it will change a day that is not going well into a better and a positive day for you.
