Paying attention to the details

This week I found myself doing knit repair work. And as I sat doing this, I fantasized that I was travel around Africa on a safari, or sailing across the ocean to Hong Kong, or traveling to Antarctica. I often find myself in this place, where I am restless for adventure in spite of my daily activities.

I often forget that these day to day activities are what eventually build the foundation of big adventures and dreams. While doing repairs may not directly lead to traveling to exotic places, the ability to be still and mend things helps to focus energy and see the steps needed to build goals and dreams.

So this week I am paying attention to the details and seeing what insights I come up with.

  1. I day dream quite a lot. Not only while crocheting. I'm someone with not a lot of patience, so the longer I am able to sit still and focus on the task at hand (completing a project for example), I figure I am helping to make myself a better, more patient person.
