Open your eyes to good things around you in Supermum style

DO you see what is going on around you?

I mean really see?

Have you noticed how blue our winter skies are at the moment?

Have you noticed the colour of the flowers in full bloom all over town?

Have your breathed and enjoyed the aroma of a hot coffee on a cold morning and then savoured that first sip?

Have you felt the warmth of the midday sun on you in contrast to the coolness of the breeze?

It is not a new concept that getting outside has an energising effect on our bodies.

A bit of exercise, a bit of sunshine, what is not to enjoy?

There is so much going on in our everyday lives and often we get bogged down in the details and are too busy to enjoy it.

I'm guilty of it too, rushing from home to work and home again, and repeat, missing all the wonders of the world around me.

One thing I have noticed more and more is the people around me are seeing everything that is bad and not even noticing the good.

More and more on social media and out in the real world I hear people talking about how 'bad' things are: how bad the service was somewhere, how bad the food was, how slow it was to be served, how grumpy the sales assistant was, how naughty the kids have been, how dirty a venue looked or how wherever they were wasn't up to the standards they expected.

Less and less I hear people talking about how beautiful a day it is, how we are lucky to have such wonderful variety of stores and natural wonders to enjoy in our region, how we are lucky to live in such a wonderful city and country.

So how do we find the good things in life again?

Believe me, they are not hard to find.

Dress warm, sit outside and watch a glorious sunset.

Tell your loved ones you love them.

Laugh with your kids.

Skip down the road.

Ride a bike.

Climb a mountain.

Sing a song as loud as you can.

Open your eyes wide, breathe in and enjoy life.

There is a bonus that comes with looking and enjoying all the good things around you…

You are no longer looking at the bad.
