Kel’s inspiration 💡 I had a very dreamy sleep last night and woke with a phrase clear in my mind, ‘the art of paying attention’. I thought about it a bit, a line I’d read in a book perhaps. I googled it and found a lovely blog that affirmed what I was already sensing, slow down, pay attention to the moment you are in, let things unfold. . “Tell me to what you pay attention and I will tell you who you are.” ~Jose Ortega y Gassett. . One of the things I found myself paying attention to on holiday were the trees and diversity of leaves. I experience the world through touch (though I controlled this urge when in Australia 🇦🇺😂) and I enjoy the luxurious feeling many leaves have. I loved this cute little tree outside our room in Kefalonia, I also really pay attention to textiles and fabric, again things that are luxurious to touch, that offer comfort. I’ve been living with chronic illness for 20 years, so comfort and luxury are important to me, a beautiful tool. I’m wearing gold shoes here from Hobbs sale, love a bit of gold for luxury! And top from The White Company that gives me so much joy, it was a gift 💝 of bohemian loveliness. So today I am slowing my mind, paying attention and being present to the moment, the only thing that’s actually real... I’ll let you know what happens...😊 . . #payingattention #theartofpayingattention #luxury #comfort #touch #presence #inthemoment #slowdown #trees #thewhitecompany #hobbs #kefalonia #bohemian #chronicillness #beautifultools #calm #simplicity
I've realized I'm in a new cycle. My Angel numbers have changed to 143, 1234, 234 and 123. Why so many? Idk Let's see what's up ahead. #angelnumbers #1234 #234 #143 #123 #newcycle #higherconscious #ascention #awakening #higherself #payingattention
This is a question I’ve been asking myself lately. I think it’s both. #perimenopause #fascismfatigue #getyouonethatcandoboth #exhausted #motherhood #payingattention #humor #yougottalaugh
The evening sky c/o my 7 year old out of the car window 💛 She saw it and wanted to take a picture of it as she thought it beautiful. I’ve just flicked through my phone to take a look. It almost looks like a painting. What a beautiful shot 🙏#justnoticing #payingattention #appreciatingbeauty #peacefulsky #beautifulworld #dusk #summerskies #mylittleplaceofcalm #mindfulness #livingmindfully
Repost from @neeshamaree using @RepostRegramApp - It is a privilege and honor to sit in the seat of the teacher. This was taken in Idaho Falls last weekend by Jackie. The exchange of information, experience and love between yogis are some reasons I do this work. Stay tuned for a September workshop at Idaho yoga co-op. Honoring awareness is such a beautiful practice. This is what Jackie said about the workshops: “Yesterday I had the honor and privilege of spending five hours in two different workshops at the yoga coop in Idaho Falls with one of my teachers, Neesha Zollinger who owns Akasha in JH. We learned about the text The Splendor of Recognition: An Exploration of the Pratyabhijñā-hṛdayam and then practiced to this theme. It was so awesome! I absolutely LOVE yoga because there’s so, so much more to learn... and I LOVE always being a student! Thank you, Neesha, for this fantastic offering. I bow deeply to you in gratitude.” Right back at you Jackie- 🙏🏽🙏🏽🙏🏽and all who attended. I’ll tell you what the Splendor of recognition is about in another post - most beautifully felt in good company and tapping in to the experience of awareness. #yoga #yogateacher #yogaworkshop #lucky #gratitude #magic #cocreate #intention #quantumphysics #yogaphilosophy #freedom #onelove #oneenergy #nothing otherthanconsciousness #focusedconcentration #awareness #payingattention #neeshazollingeryoga #breath #simpleandprofound thank you for hosting @dayshayoga @idahoyogacoop

So I dont know how observant you are, but I noticed today Facebook has same sex couple emojis but no emojis of people of color and if you hold it down it makes the emoji bigger but you can not change the representation of color. You are about equality for a minority group but those of color have been fighting way longer #facebook #emojis #equality #awareness #observation #hidden #payingattention #entrepreneur #fitnessmom #educated
Here’s what I’ve noticed about doing more art: I notice art more. I notice cool fonts and quirky design elements and patterns I want to steal. So I made a #bujo collection to help me keep them for easy reference. . . . . . . . #bulletjournal #bulletjournaling #artmaking #collector #graphicdesign #payingattention

11:11 - After a night of restless thoughts that have followed me all morning. These repetitive numbers are becoming more frequent. 🙏🏽💚 #payingattention "Do not put your energy into focusing on fears as you may manifest them into your life. Angel Number 1111 is a message from your angels to be very aware of your persistent thoughts and ideas as these are manifesting quickly into your reality." #1111 #spiritualmessage #angelswatching #manifestation #numerology #awakening
It’s an important rule that whatever you practice, you strengthen. Whatever you don’t practice, you weaken. About 40-80% of our daily actions are habits. Things we do consistently. They can either strengthen us (good habits) or weaken us (bad habits). It’s a matter of what you decide (consciously or unconsciously) to reinforce. The more reputations you have, the easier it becomes to choose and do the action. Want to feel fulfilled? … Practice things that make you feel fulfilled. Want to feel happy? Practice things that make you feel happy. Want to feel healthy? … Practice things that make you feel healthy. Want to feel frustrated? … Practice things that make you feel fulfilled. Want to feel depressed? … Practice things that make you feel depressed. Want to feel lazy? … Practice things that make you feel lazy. It’s your choice. And you pay with the two biggest currencies you have. Your attention Your actions. What behavior are you doing daily that build you up? What behavior are you doing daily that breaks you down? What could you change that would help you become a better version of yourself? Small things … maybe something easy that you could pick up …. And wouldn’t weigh so heavy to drop it down once you start to carry it? Of all the things you can start doing … what could you start to do ..now? Daily … consistently? And what stupid habits, addictions, and actions could you STOP doing … now? Daily and consistency? We are what we practice and what we pay attention to? You ‘ll pay a huge price by making the wrong choices and repeating the bad actions … it ‘ll have a huge TAX on your life and it ‘ll be a COST .. not an investment. Choose wisely … all our choices, decisions and actions make up our character … And our character .. creates our destiny. #habits #practice #betterversion #change #consistency #smallsteps #goodhabits #badhabits #addiction #decision #choices #lifestyle #personality #character #habitbootcamps #mindset #attention #payingattention #dailytasks #dailyactions #doitdaily
🍃My oldest son noticed this beautiful butterfly (an Eastern Comma, I think?) on a recent walk, and not only did he stop and take a picture, but immediately sent it along to his mother. 😊 Our gentle, nature-based homeschooling began with moments like this - and while 20 years ago he would have drawn me a picture, nowadays I’m gifted with a text. This Mama will happily take it. 💚 #nature #naturelovers #naturebasedlearning #homeschooling #homeschoolmom #lessonslearned #butterfly #inourwoods #easterncomma #newenglandsummer #payingattention #acuriousmind #asenseofwonder #lifelonglearner 🧡
For weeks I’ve said to myself, “Autumn is going to come early this year.” And every time I’ve squashed down that knowing because, oh, I don’t know, the calendar says otherwise (even though I don’t tell the passing of seasons by calendar), it’s 100 degrees, summer has only just begun in these mountains, winter’s footprints still marking the highest, that things are staying greener longer than usual, the crickets haven’t even begun their ode to summer lullabies, the very heartbeat of sultry, languid summer nights, and oh, 99 other reasons that are right before my eyes. But that’s the thing about seasons. I sense them before I see them. And of course they don’t suddenly change on four precise days of the year. There are countless seasons within a season, some merely lasting a day. Since I can remember I’ve equated the fairy-like thistle seeds floating through the air as a first sign of summer casting a far away look toward autumn. I start to see them in mid to late August. But I saw them yesterday. Elderflower to elderberry, I held the first indigo black bunches in my hand this morning. And I saw two flocks of geese taking to the skies. Not flying south exactly, nor merely hopping fields, but stirred up, on the move. Autumn is going to come early this year. ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ ↟ #orchard #summerevening #pnw #pacificnorthwest #washington #payingattention #getoutside #outdoors #seasons #light #thegoldenhour #nature #outsideeveryday
Does matter pay attention to you? If we're talking about our smartphones, they know everything about you. You can also use your smartphone as a method of paying attention - you just need to be active (looking up information, for example) rather than passive with it (checking Instagram). 😊 Things we are learning at "The Practice of Paying Attention, with @carolinewoolard , @nalencz , @anamatease , and #DGrahamBurnett . -------------------------------- #payingattention , #matter , #observation , #attention , #alchemy , #technology , #paneldiscussion

“I don’t regret having kids, but I regret not having the picture perfect family to raise them in. What is the picture perfect family? Being able to take vacations… do sports, having someone to help discipline. Just having someone to share the workload with.”⠀ ⠀ Captured by PSU student Shelby Johnson, while volunteering at Human Solutions. ⠀ ⠀ #portlandstateuniversity #pdx #stories #portrait #civicaction #effectingchange #storyfinding #storytelling #HONY #communitybasedlearning #volunteer#portlandphotographer #volunteer #capstoneproject #psu #northwestcreatives #photooftheday #payingattention #deeplistening #wecare #betterworld #community #remarkablepeople #learningtosee #appreciate #connection #changeagent #communitybuilding #portlandoregon

Instead of giving brain-space to the overwhelmed feelings trying to sneak into this Monday night, I’m putting my focus on what has brought me joy today: a bowl of beautiful fresh blueberries for dessert (a gift from a member of our sweet church family)...music that sets my feet to dancing in early morning hours (here’s looking at you, La La Land)...reading a friend’s manuscript and realizing for the billionth time how thankful I am for our little writerly-family...finding my daughter watching The Greatest Showman AGAIN...my boys cleaning the kitchen on their own while I shopped for groceries...my 4-year-old niece’s voice in pure excitement over the art she made today...being able to talk to that niece’s mama about all the things that matter most...the little sprinkle of rain...the promise that living from trust in a good Father equals freedom and NOT fear. Maybe it is the most wonderful kind of wild freedom to let go of our worry and just rest in exactly what we’ve been given in this moment, right here and right now. PS What has brought you joy today? If you feel like sharing, I’d love to hear about the little (or big!) moments in your corner of the world! #beautifulworld #payingattention #stayingastonished #thingsthatmakemesmile #family

Yellow Curve by Ellsworth Kelly , an artist I adore ... kelly painted and reproduced shapes he saw in the world around him. Such as shadows or spaces between objects. In some respect he was a figurative artist. The space he was interested in was not the surface of the painting but the space between you and the painting. Also he was interested about how the shape of his paintings ,size and colours would make you feel... I can almost hear some people saying; ‘Oh I can do this too.’... But being an artist it’s not at all about proving to a third party that you can do something they don’t. That you have a skill they couldn’t master. Making art it’s usually a visual and creative way of building a bridge between our experiences and reality and it can be deep or superficial, chaotic or restrained, peaceful or irreverent and it can also take many forms and lead to different outcomes depending on the individual. #ellsworthkelly #zephyrusadamas #awe #minimalism #american #art #artist #minimalism #hardedgepainting #abstract #abstractart #abstractpainting #yellow #triangle #curve #tate #tatemodern #tategallery #giallo #size #space #artgallery #payingattention #london #londra
