Awareness - Focus on the present moment.

With all the speed and distractions of life today, it’s hard to pay attention to anything long enough to really experience it. But it's possible to slow down and appreciate the miracles presented to you each day. Discover why it’s so important to make the most of the present moment.

What’s one thing can you do to make sure you are fully present for each moment of your life today?
“Normally, we do not so much look at things as overlook them.” - Alan Watts, American philosopher

“We can only be said to be alive in those moments when our hearts are conscious of our treasures.” - Thornton Wilder, American playwright

"The eye sees only what the mind is prepared to comprehend."
- Henri Bergson, French philosopher

“You can observe a lot just by watching.” - Yogi Berra, American professional baseball player


  1. Great reminder. I went rushing through too many years of my seeing better these days, but still too many times/days where I am not seeing the full glory of life.

    Thanks for the reminder to "catch" the miracles.

  2. I appreciate your honesty, Dave. We can overlook so many special moments when we're pre-occupied with either the past or the future. When I start the day with a focus on gratitude and appreciation, I find that I'm more attentive to the miracles that present themselves throughout the day.
