Patterns of Nature

Positive opportunities are being presented to us daily by nature. These opportunities are a form of kindness to us that most of us need practice identifying.

As such, start spending time looking for these opportunities in your life, even in hindsight. Choose at least one and allow it to fill your heart with wonder. To do this, you will need to pay attention to your role in its unfolding and then fulfill it. If it makes sense to do so, act on this opportunity in a way that honors both it and you.

Later, at some quiet point, reflect on at least three of the opportunities you identified, whether or not you acted on them. This may entail taking note of them after the fact as it’s likely you will not have recognized some without the benefit of hindsight.

The intention in taking time to consider these opportunities later is to help you become more aware of them as they are happening.
