The other day on the way to work I saw a tree all by itself on the side of the road. Even though I’ve driven by this tree thousands of times it’s the first time I’ve ever noticed it. I actually thought to myself, “Has that tree always been there?”
Not sure why it’s taken 15 years of driving past that tree to notice it? Perhaps it was the light hitting it different but whatever it was I’ve been thinking about that tree and how it could relate to the rest of my life.
Are there “trees” in my marriage, my relationship with my kids, or my career that I’m missing because I’m on auto-pilot?
This week I’m going to open my eyes and ears and be intentional about paying attention to my surroundings and the people in my life. Care to join me?
