We are all inclined to judge ourselves by our ideals; others, by their acts.

What you notice

Notice something different today, something you usually ignore. Notice something new today, something that sparks a fresh insight, a feeling of enrichment.

Those things you notice, combine together to form your view of the world, to influence the way you feel and speak and act. In those things you pass by without noticing, could be hiding a whole new set of positive thoughts, perspectives, and possibilities.

You cannot notice everything. However, you can choose to lift your attention out of the rut into which it may have fallen.

In this very same time, and place, and life, are countless joys and opportunities you’ve not yet noticed. Aren’t you a little bit curious as to what they might be?

All the valuable things you now know about, that benefit your life greatly, you had to first notice. Wouldn’t it be a good idea to open yourself to even more?

Your whole experience can change without the reality of your situation having changed in the least. It all depends on what you notice.

— Ralph Marston
