I often have young people ask me how to recognize their path. Most of the time you just start.
The key is to pay attention.
What might look like a straightforward route almost always has surprises along the way that we can easily miss if we aren’t noticing.
Yesterday I was on this path…rocky, uneven, a bit boring….then I heard something in me say “Stop, look down.” I was about to step on this nest. Cleverly camouflaged in the middle of the path. I could have ignored what I heard, I could have powered through unaware and missed it or worse, stepped on it.
Several years ago, I was completing a year-long contract with a coaching client. When I asked what she was going away with she replied, “Noticing IS doing something.”
Paying attention takes practice and then becomes a practice.
What are you noticing?
