Notice

“I see you.” I say that when I’m running with Lily and Molly when they look up to make sure that I am paying attention to them. A simple acknowledgement to let them know that I notice them. We all long to be “seen” and acknowledged, to not be invisible.

We get trapped in our own world and feelings, missing opportunities to encourage others. And when we get outside of ourselves and offer the gift of acknowledgement, our perspective on our world changes.

Take notice each day. A simple and profound gift to others and yourself.

    I took your advice and apologized to a friend for something. I wanted to know that I acknowledged her feelings. Turned out I was overanalyzing and she was fine. However, the open communication was the best thing to do. Once again, your wisdom was used for good not evil.

  3. I assume that Lily and Molly are dogs. I LOVED this! I too, have dogs that, like us, want to be noticed. I’ll take up this practice! Thank you.
