Awareness As Well As. . .

Awareness As Well As

Adaptability. . .

 

 

Practice.  Practice.  Practice.  And then practice some more.  While perfection remains elusive, there is much good to say about practice habits. But along with practice the words "become" and "stay" make more sense especially when combined with "aware". Become and stay aware.

 

 

All sorts of things can and do happen along the way as we practice all sorts of things each day. Many such things are a part of life.  Sometimes they are unstoppable. Then there are those things where we have more control. In either situation, we continue to learn from the experiences. Even though we may be acquainted with them on some level already.

 

Just a short thought.  To myself.  And to anyone else who needs a reminder.    Because as soon as we forget it, ignore it or overlook it - that's when we may see it. Hopefully that occurs before it is too late. Of course, there is a place for hibernation but it bears repeating - keep aware and stay adaptable when needed.

HI Michael Jacobs - I see what you did with the last line!  LOL.  

When I lived in CA, I was part of the rat race every day.  Going through the motions.  It wasn't until I came to Sedona and smelled the pine trees and observed the red rocks that I really started to become aware of what life is all about.

Sheri Sperry - MCNE® - following your posts on AR continues to show me that you found "the right spot" for you with your move to Sedona.  Your enthusiasm for the area is expressed in your writing.  And the photography by your husband enhances those words and "illustrates" your point.

Brian England - I "missed" seeing your reply to my response to your comment yesterday that you were a Cub Scout but decided not to go on to the BSA.  Me too.  I began that journey as a "Webelo".  Although my introduction was later than most,  I kinda knew from the beginning it was not my thing.   As I recall my Dad was pretty enthusiastic about it.

Two of my brothers really enjoyed it Michael Jacobs and both are Eagle Scouts.

Morning Michael, you are up very early!   I was up too late, and still not awake!   I was a girl scout too, and that was 100 years ago!

I'm currently learning German and practice each and every day...it isn't easy at my age to learn new things but I'm sticking with it.

As for experiences...

Learning from each and every experience, especially the negative ones, is so important.

Roy Kelley - I hope your Wednesday is a good one.

 

Joan Cox - I have long been an early riser.   Were you top performer when it came to those cookie sales???

 

Sharon Tara - wow, that's impressive.  Any particular reason you chose German?  Me - I'm still practicing English --- the struggle is real.   🙃

Our daughter and son-in-law currently live there.


Several family members, including Zack and Jacinda, are learning the language with plans to visit at some point.

OH YES, maybe sales has always been in my blood.   To be quite honest though, those cookies sell themselves!

Hi Michael - the more we practice the more we retain and then it becomes a habit.

A fantastic post to ponder Michael (as usual). Am buying a new car and am out of sorts a bit but aware of the make and model and price point...reality can bite!👀

Hello Michael Jacobs 

I practice "awareness" in my daily meditations.  Flying on autopilot is a good thing as long as we have reliable instruments to get us to where we are going. 

Absent that, we need to unplug and be aware of our self, others, and our surroundings.

Kathleen Daniels, Probate & Trust Specialist - there is much to be said for unplugging.

Pat Champion - I often recall of the quote attributed to Vince Lombardi about perfection.  Your comment is another of those reminders.
