Listen. Because listening’s important:
Hi and welcome to the Re-Enchant Your Life reminder.
Your sacred pause in the day where you’re encouraged to take a moment to stop and tune into your inner wisdom and become present, so that you can reconnect to your personal power and confidently embrace who you’re becoming, as you Re-Enchant Your life and create the change you truly desire.
Today you’re being reminded to pay attention to the small things in your life.
The things that you usually fail to notice or take for granted.
The way the light streams in a room, the tiny bud of a tree, the delicate fragrance of a flower, the sincere smile from a stranger, a small act of kindness, a compassionate thought, a gentle embrace, a listening ear, a tender touch, a loving whisper.
Then take a moment to notice all the small things that you do.
The routine things, the things you take for granted, the things you pay so little attention to that you barely notice them at all.
Perhaps you do them so often you do them in a meditative state, requiring very little of your awareness, maybe you’re too busy thinking about the next thing to do.
Acknowledge the things you do out of love and kindness, even when you’d rather not, or have other things you’d rather do.
The more you become aware of and pay attention to all of these small actions, the small acts of thoughtfulness, and the everyday achievements and accomplishments, they will grow and fill you with a greater sense of love and admiration for yourself and the world around you.
When you begin to recognise the small acts of wonder, and recognise more of what you do, you will have greater feelings of joy and fulfilment.
Celebrate them and recognise you.
In this very moment, just pause and take a breath, as you allow yourself to recognise all of the small things that bring you joy and fulfilment.
Today’s SHEro Action:
Today’s SHEro action is to pay attention to the small things, for they aren’t really small at all.
Create an abundance list and fill it with all of the things that you don’t always notice.
Anything that lifts your energy, a smile, a piece of art, some music, an act of kindness, having a shower, eating a juicy cherry.
Notice all of the things that fill you up and add a little joy, love or nourishment to your day.
Let these feelings fill you up as you embrace more of them.
Pause, and take a breath. As you allow yourself to recognise all that you have and do.
“I am open to receive more joy in my life”
I’ll see you tomorrow for your daily reminder to Re-Enchant Your Life with me, Rebecca-Anuwen,
In the meantime, enjoy celebrating the small things!
In my groups, on a Sunday, I do a practice that encourages them to recognise all that they do and achieve.
Often, we can get to the end of the week and only notice the things that remain ‘outstanding’ on our to-do list.
We quickly forget all of the things that we’ve done.
The everyday things such as getting groceries, cleaning your home, getting to work or school on time, feeding yourself and maybe a family, paying the bills, putting the rubbish out, resting, sleeping, reading your favourite book, listening to your favourite podcast… I’m sure your list goes on and on.
These things all take your time and energy.
You can forget about them, as they’re part of your routine, but you still do the daily things, recognise that you do.
When you can recognise all that you do, and not just the ‘big’ things, you get a better appreciation of yourself and feel more fulfilled, as you focus less on the to-do list and more on your done-list.
