“Paul you really clearly have such a natural infectious enthusiasm for life.”

This was one of the best things that my mentor and Dear friend Fiona Harrold ever said to me. It wasn’t always this way. There was a time when I hardly ever laughed or smiled, I was completely lost inside of myself. The other day someone said to me, “You say Wow a lot, did you know that?” I told them that I make it a priority to notice what’s around me and find things to find wonderment in. Life is exciting and there is a lot to say wow about.

Pay attention. Life is amazing and beautiful and wonderful. Yes, times can be tough and we can face huge challenges but it doesn’t mean life isn’t still beautiful and wonderful. We choose where we put our attention. Notice the fascinating, the beautiful, the odd, the unusual, the extraordinary.

I visited an aquarium recently with my Husband and I was mesmerised by these little creatures called Weedy Sea Dragons. They are exquisite little things that look alien, magical as if JK Rowling had written them into the pages of a book.


In that moment, these tiny creatures held my whole attention; I was in awe. This is a practice that can be achieved by noticing, being mindful and paying attention. It grounds you in the present moment, expands your horizons and feeds your spirit.


Until next time…
