UBC Day 4 - You have sight but do you really see?


For a deaf and blind person, Helen Keller saw and understood more than many sighted people.

How many of us truly see what’s around us? We have the gift of sight but fail to see for whatever reason. Perhaps we’re too busy and distracted, too tired, too complacent and too apathetic.

We could learn a lot from children who delight in seeing and interacting with everything around them. They see so much that we miss.

When was the last time you really looked with that first time feeling of newness and excitement?

Surely as adults, we can recapture that feeling if we try hard enough.

Why not give ourselves permission to be in the moment and just be? 

Put the “to do” list away for a while and ditch the guilt. 

Go and see what you've been missing.

I am participating at Write Tribe 


Write Tribe

and the Ultimate Blogging Challenge for July.

Love those challenges! They're the best!

  2. Agree, in the daily rut of life, we simply forget to actually enjoy the little things around us, and simply dont live in the moment! But we must truly stop that! Thanks for the reminder, Cathy :)

    1. It certainly is, Vinodini. Not always easy when we are distracted by too much stuff in our minds. Worth it, though.
