Stop, Look & Listen

Do you remember waaay back when you were a wee nipper, about to cross the road when your mum grabbed your hand and shouted “stop…. look…. & listen”? 😉

You may be wondering where I’m going with this, stick with me…..

I visited one of the most beautiful small gardens the other day & it got me thinking how I’ve recently been making a conscious effort to tell myself to stop….look….& listen.

I don’t know about you, but my head is always full of just stuff…..generally unimportant, unhelpful stuff….. worry about things that’ll (most likely) never happen, worry about what others may or may not be thinking & so the list goes on.

I forget to really take the time to stop & look at the beautiful things around me.

In just an hour, we spotted 5 different types of dragonfly & 5 species of butterfly….. How easily I could have missed out on that!

Even if you do this already, try it next time you’re out & about….make a conscious decision to stop, look & listen.

Let me know in the comments below how you make the most of the nature around you.
