Have you every purposely taken a close look at all that surrounds you? Are there trees and gardens? Are there nature trails nearby that you have taken advantage of? Is there a body of water close by? Are there farmers’ fields? What types of shops and buildings are in your area? Have you looked around your home and actually been thankful for all that is available to you?

There is so much beauty that surrounds us yet so many of us spend our days busy listening to the babbling voice in our mind. We miss the enjoyment of the moment and see very little of what is next to us.

Have a look around you right now as you are reading this post. I mean a really good look. Don’t just scan your surroundings. Focus to see all the little details in your surroundings. Take them in and feel their presence. Let them make an imprint. Why ignore what is right in front of you?

Now go a step further. Review your life itself, your children, your other half, your pets, your parents and brothers and sisters, all of your family whether blood or chosen, those whom you work with or see regularly at work.

Now go even deeper and pay attention to those that you pass on the road, in the store, on your walk or in the movie theater. Take it all in during the moment and let this “seeing” spill into your day. Pay attention to it all. Experience breathing in the air...actually feel the warmth of the air or the coldness of the air. Experience how it feels on your skin. Feel the warmth of the Sun. Experience the stars. Feel the energy of the Moon within you. Take in the fragrances of all that surrounds you.

When people are on holidays, they take in much of their surroundings and experience life much more than when we are living our day to day life. Why don’t we focus on everyday life just as we do while we are on holidays? Each moment is special and holds its own magic. We CAN open our eyes to that which we normally take for granted and feel life’s experience. We can even feel life’s vibrations and our interaction with what is taking place in our lives if we place our focus there. We can also experience intuition and a connection to all living things if we choose to pay attention to these energies. This and so much more surrounds us each and every moment. What are we missing?

The next time we feel life is offering us nothing, we should have a little peak at what is right in front of us. If life feels difficult it is not because of the events that are taking place, it is due to our attitude of what is taking place. All this that we fight will eventually pass but these events would be much easier to experience if we just accepted. We are not suggesting that we allow ourselves to be a victim. Quite to the contrary; we cannot allow ourselves to be victims. We can take control of our reaction to life and insist that it will benefit us, not knock us down.

When life is what we term as good, we can hold this energy in our hearts and be thankful. Our hard times offer growth and our wonder moments provide us with happiness and peace. Experience it all. Time waits for no one. We are only here for a short time in the grand scheme of things, but in the moment, we have eternity. Gratitude and happiness are within our grasps always. Take advantage of what life is offering but we have to recognize this to enjoy it.
