On Thursday, I had my niece over for a sleep over and I love having her over. There is nothing like being in the moment enjoying adventures, watching movies and eating. We went to bed early on Thursday night and she was looking forward to watching a new series that she found on TV.
I woke the next morning around 4am, yeah, I thought to myself I can sleep some more. I snuggled into the pillow and closed my eyes and drifted off to sleep.
The next thing I knew someone had shouted BOO! I woke from my sleep startled, disorientated and slightly confused. I screamed that half asleep half asleep kind of scream. I opened my eyes and standing next to my bed was my niece smiling and laughing. I was caught off guard I thought that I was having some sort of heart attack (sorry exaggerating there).
By this time my niece was laughing and I said to her “Why did you wake me up like that?”
She said that she was going to say wake up its going to be a great day, come on get up. Let’s enjoy the day.
I said to her that would have been nicer.
It made me think about our lives and are we going through our lives half asleep or are we fully awake?
Do we know what we are doing?
Do we know what direction we are going?
Are we fully embracing our lives or are we missing out on things?
Are we in the moment in our daily lives or our we thinking about what we have to do next?
Do you need someone to say to you Boo! Get up come on, it’s going to be a beautiful day, come on, let’s go?
If I am really honest, Yes, every now and then I need someone to say to me Boo! Come on the world is waiting there are endless possibilities. What are you going to be missing out on, look around?
Open your eyes and look really look.
I don’t want to miss out on opportunities this year.
I want to spend more time fully in the moment.
I want to spend more time investing in being in the moment more.
Wake up, lovely and see watch is happening today.
