To simply listen.

January 7, 2012

Throughout the whirlwind of today- you know- the fast paced lives, everything must be perfect to a "t," that feeling of insignificance it has become so difficult to simply listen.  Reading something without just scanning it over, listening to a story and hanging on every word, saying something and really being sincere.  To look at a picture and really, just be in awe of the beauty inside it.  To simply listen to the beauty inside of everything.  Not just looking... but seeing too.  It's hard, I know.  But know this:  there is a uniqueness in everything and it's beautiful.  You just have to find it and acknowledge the beauty.

How many times have I missed out on advice, inspiration, a wonderful memory to be cherished because I simply did not want to stop and listen?  I didn't take time to find the good or the beauty in what was before me.

So now, I listen as I hear the whisper in the tree tops outside my window, the sincerity in my little sister's talking as she tries to voice her thoughts, I look for the good in a grainy picture and find, it's not how the picture comes that makes it inspirational...  It's what it is that matters.

I've been busy redoing my bulletin board and making the heart garland this week.  Twas what kept me busy with the good old hammer and such.  It was lots of fun and I *should* have a tutorial for the heart garland coming up soon.
