Are You Paying Attention?

“Big things are often just small things that are noticed.” – Markus Zusak

Little Gems of Wisdom & Fun from Mary Lynn Ziemer

O.k., now it's time to really pay attention. Are you present right now? Are you here, in this moment? Now... stay for an extra minute or two and look around at all the little things there are to be in awe of. Pay close attention to these things! Because, believe me, when you find a new autopilot of love, gratitude, and fun, your life will take off and will never be the same again!

Remember, how you feel creates your life. Finding the good and happy in every moment is possible. But first, you simply have to pay attention to how you feel!

Be aware as your life is unfolding in the present moment. It's time to create a new "auto-pilot", the mode of "light-hearted" thinking. Focus on thoughts that are directed by your heart. Now, bask in the delight of your life that is in front of you now. Have fun with it! Laugh and smile a whole lot more. Try seeing the potential that the present moment holds for you. It will make you feel better as you let go of the need to think about what you are doing next. Bring yourself back to NOW.

Indeed, this takes practice. But, it is so well worth it. As you learn to live more mindfully in the moment you are living, experiencing what is right in front of you, you will begin to feel exhilarated!

How? Our day is a sum of precious moments and experiences. We have so many moments in our lives that we can more deeply experience in a joyful way. We just have to decide to give them our full attention. First, close your eyes and take a deep breath. Then do it again, and breathe even deeper. Breathe love in... and breathe it out. Relax, by dropping your shoulders. Then, open your eyes and truly see all the beauty around you. Smile as you “see” the magnificence of what is right in front of you. A person being beautifully human, a breathtaking sky, a lovely wildflower, or the joyful flight of a bird overhead. Just see whatever it is that’s around you right now, wherever you are, and see the perfection in it. Now feel love for all of it. Feel love for everything that you see. This requires that you see only the beauty and blessings it presents to you. Look for the magnificence that the moment holds. It IS possible. Just pay close attention.

Even when you have created a moment that you would prefer to be different, you can take the high road. First, give yourself a break, hug yourself and remind yourself that you are doing the best you can. Cry a bit if it makes you feel better, or laugh at yourself, then smile knowing you are moving in the most loving direction.

We are all different, so whatever works for you is right. Know that the situation is just temporary. Be committed to moving forward in self-love first. Then notice how good it feels to love others. Say it out loud. Tell yourself that you want your joy back and mean it. Tell yourself, “I love you (your name)" and feel it. Now, send love to the thought or the other who is at the root of your circumstance. Tell yourself, “I feel only love.” It’s always your choice.

Do you want to move forward in love, gratitude, and fun for yourself and others?

Remind yourself that everything is going to work out. Then, “Flip the Switch to Joy," to your preferred outcome, and feel the wonderful possibility of it happening. Be committed to thinking from your heart by finding thoughts that make your heart glow. Those thoughts will show you the way to feeling the joy of the moment.

Now, see a picture of what you want and put thoughts of gratitude and appreciation in your mind, as though it has already happened. Feel love all around you, because it is there. You just have to pay attention... see it... and feel it. The more you enjoy the moment you are in, the more you will create the next moment the way you want it to be.

As always, start with loving yourself more. Then, love everyone and everything else more than you ever have before. As you do, you will see this World in a completely new way. You will see new beauty around you for the first time ever. Now, watch... as your level of fun, magic, and miracles goes beyond anything that you could have ever previously imagined!

Have an absolutely magical week full of love, gratitude and fun, fun, FUN!
