Taking Notice


“Sometimes, little things make a big difference…”
Nino Varsimashvili

When we get too caught up in the busyness of our life, we lose connection with the small things that surround us. I often look  around and think of how it is the little things we look back on in life.


During your day make the effort to find something beautiful to notice. It does not have to be something you see, it could be a scent, perhaps of freshly baked bread wafting out of a bakery, or it could be the sound of the breeze slightly rustling the leaves in the trees, or the way the morning light catches the leafy green tree tops. The glint of the sun reflecting of the glass.

Look for these things, and cherish them. For, although it may sound trite, these things are the ‘stuff’ of life. The things we often take for granted. Enjoy the little things, for one day you may look back and realise they were the big things. Make it a priority to notice them. and make those things you notice matter.

“If the sight of the blue skies fills you with joy, if a blade of grass springing up in the fields has power to move you, if the simple things of nature have a message that you understand, rejoice, for your soul is alive.”
Eleonora Duse
