Eyes Wide Open

Reading Cyranny’s Cove Blog last night, I see that she is featuring something called After Eight Moments  She has been capturing moments each day with her phone and shares them on her site.  She suggested we might  also find some time to see what we can come up with. I think it’s a great concept and it will encourage me to pay more attention as I go about my day.  Loving nature, I generally enjoy running outdoors and thought it would be a good idea to take better notice of my surroundings.  Usually I am engrossed in an audible book whilst also keeping an eye on the sidewalks for uneven paving.  I have experienced a couple of nasty trips and my poor face, knees ankles and hands can’t take much more abuse!

This morning the temperature was hovering around the 90 degree mark and I had to slow down and walk for a while so I wouldn’t pass out.  That gave me the chance to study the world around me and I found these two great things.

Thanks for the encouragement!

    I love this 🙂 Not only because I had something to do with it (I am so honored to think that my After Eight Moments motivated you into being more aware of the little things 🙂 🙂 🙂 You totally made my day!) but also because the two pictures you picked are perfect examples of things we could easily go by without noticing them 🙂

    I also used to listen to music while taking walks… But as I took on this personal challenge of being more aware of my environment, I stopped taking my Ipod with me, because it was distracting me a lot…

    Thank you again for participating, I’ll link this in, in tonight’s After Eight Moment 🙂 xx
