Sometimes we are barely there. We aren’t seen, or at least parts of us aren’t seen or are overlooked. At times that can be frustrating but, at others, it can be a good thing. It can mean that we have time to watch, time to breathe, time just to be. We can slip, quietly into the scenery, becoming part of it. We are free to show what we want, to whom we want, when we want to.
But also we can find that life moves so quickly that we don’t stop to really look, to really see and appreciate what is right there in front of us. We might not see an opportunity, or the potential, or our ability to change things. It is good to slow down sometimes. To take the time. To really see what is there, and especially to see what is barely there, what may have been over looked.
I know that the past while I have become absorbed in things. At times I think we need to indulge those feelings but at others, we need to step up and be seen. It can hold us back to be focussed on the same spot. Sometimes we need permission to let go. Sometimes we need a push to see the opportunities and recognise potential and to believe we have the power to make the changes we need to.
