Daily Ideas of a Housewife....: Words for Wednesday

Words for Wednesday

We are surrounded by inspirations daily if we just know where to look. Often times their right in front of us. Yesterday I started reading the new book by Katie Couric, "The Best Advice I Ever Got - Lessons from Extraordinary Lives". Inside I found some great advice from the unsuspected "Chelsea Handler". Here are just a few lines written on Paying Attention:
"I wish someone had told me when I was growing up that succeeding in life is as simple as paying attention. Paying attention to everything and everyone. Paying  attention to each person's success and each person's failures. As long as your paying attention you'll grab inspiration from everything and create something that's a little different and a little newer." "Just pay attention".
I think often in life we are so caught up in ourselves and what is going on in our lives and we make it impossible to really see what is around us and to learn from others. So take some time today to "pay attention" and be inspired.
