It’s been one of those ‘blink and you’ll miss it’ weeks...and not just for how fast Tuesday seems to have come back around.
More to the point, it’s the realisation of just how many moments of opportunity in the average day, are potentially being lost in the 'auto-mode' vacuum that seems to once again be gaining suction, as we move out of lockdown.
There’s a very real risk, as our lives resume busyness, that sights such as THIS, for example, will increasingly begin to pass us by.
Skimming over the minutia of life might not seem like a big deal, but it's a slippery slope that could chip away at the 'small league' mindset (where the little things, are the big things) that we’ve spent the last year cultivating.
It’s this that’s been a central 'thinking point' for the week, and not least for what this trend might mean for our wellbeing. After all, so much of what this hinges on, can be traced back to those 'blink and you'll miss them' opportunities for enriching our lives, that exist in the day-to-day.
Every sight savoured, every cup of tea relished and every conscious pause taken are all split-second behaviours that busyness can easily push off our radar... along with so much else!
This ‘Choose Day’, therefore, it’s all about CHOOSING to stop and take stock. Whether through a spontaneous visit to some bluebell woods (currently in bloom, for a limited time only) or by some other means of everyday mindfulness!
