Watch. Taking time out to learn and relax.
In this busy world we often forget to just stop for a moment. Stop and watch the world go around us.
My son watches everything. He doesn’t miss a thing.
Children are good at watching.
There are also people like my father. He can stop and look at something like a landscape or river for hours on end, in complete silence. He says this for him is the perfect experience.
Watching takes time.
But it’s a gift we shouldn’t take for granted. It’s the gift of curiosity, learning, contentment and peace.
Today I will take time out of my busy day to just watch something, with no expectations other than to be ready for what the world has to show me.
‘Watch’ is today’s word out of the jar. Read more about my Out of the Jar project here.
