This month the theme is:
Pay AttentionImage by mshanhun via Flickr
Attention is such a precious thing, I'm in the early stages of pregnancy and find it a lot harder than usual to focus on others. Whether it's due to morning sickness, tiredness, hormones, or just my easily disctractable nature, I just find my mind wandering.
I've been using tools to help me pay attention, so that means using my Memory Logbook, and journals to jot down details; lists, my whiteboard and reminders on my computer of things that may slip my mind; and overall mindful attitude to be sure to be paying attention to my increased energy and sleep needs.
I've been paying attention to the little details even though a website launch, university tutoring and life in general can always distract me from the bigger picture. My family deserves to have my undivided attention!
Even though I've only scrapped about 5-6 pages in the last couple of months, I've taken the time to pay attention to the little details of our daily life and I've been blogging at the kitchen table while Emily watches her favourite TV programs. Here's a sampling of my recent posts with this in mind:
I am the only one who can choose where my attention goes and today I am grateful to have this reminder.
How has paying attention brought you happiness lately?
