Are You Paying Atention?

One of the ways that I have found things to write about daily, is by simply paying attention. Every morning when I wake up or at night before I go to bed I ask myself, “What are, or were, you supposed to have learned today?” I am pretty confident that we are suppose to learn something every day and that the people we meet and the situations we are confronted with are meant to teach us. One of the things that happens to all of us from time to time, is that we get distracted and just don’t pay attention. We get in that sort of auto pilot mode and don’t snap out of it until our plane is headed towards a mountain side. I know sometimes it’s nice to just sit back and think of nothing but even thinking of nothing has its purpose, “if you think about it.”

If you pay close attention to what the universe is telling you, you might be able to have a two way conversation with it, where you have a say in what’s going on. On the other hand, if you just stumble through your day in auto pilot, the universe will put mountains in front of you and scream out “PAY ATTENTION!!!!!!”

I did spell Attention wrong on purpose in the title, nice to see you were paying attention.

You got me! I was not paying attention and didn't catch the misspelling.
