This painting has been in our home for years…
Today, for the first time, I noticed his smile.
I’m drawn to smiles. So how have I never seen this smile before, when it’s right in front of me. In our home. Every day.
Did I STOP and actually SEE this painting on this relaxing Sunday morning…
…as tho seeing it for the first time?
What if we STOP and SEE… as tho for the first time.
STOP and LISTEN… as tho for the first time.
STOP and SPEAK… as tho for the first time.
STOP and SMILE… as tho for the first time.
STOP and HUG… as tho for the first time.
STOP and ACCEPT… as tho for the first time.
Maybe it’s more about STOPPING.
Than it is about SEEING.
Try it this week:
STOP and SEE WITH NEW EYES.
As tho for the first time.
