I Want To Notice


I want to notice . . .


when someone is feeling low so that I may comfort them.


when someone needs space so that I may give it to them.


when someone is grumpy so that I may detach and not take it personally.


when there is an opportunity to be of service so that I may take it.


I want to notice . . .


when my body is in need so that I may nurture her.


when I am tired so that I may rest.


when I feel overwhelmed so that I may return to balance.


when I am emotionally triggered so that I may do what best awakens me to Love.


when I am filling the space with unnecessary words so that I may become quiet.


when I am acting without awareness so that I may return to mindfulness.


when I am feeling disconnected so that I may center myself in Silence.


I want to notice the personal, everyday miracles of my life

so that I may appreciate them and offer gratitude.
