Phenomenal Friday – Defining Your Place In The World Pt. 1



Defining your place in the world means paying attention to what surrounds you. Looking at the world through fresh eyes, you’ll see the beauty and wonder of everyday living, giving more reasons to ‘Live Out Loud.’ You’ll discover and see beyond the social separation, the mental block and see the oneness that is life. You’ll be amazed what you discover if you simply Pay attention!
The following blog is my submission to Debbie’s Forgiving Friday  series, where she writes about and invite others to share their thoughts on  Forgiveness, Self-Love and Personal Growth. Debbie, thank you and I am so grateful the opportunity to contribute to your blog.

  3. Etta!!! This is a magnificent post. I love your focus of paying attention. I went to this seminar where they asked 3 questions:
    Am I present?
    What is my intention?
    Where is the focus of my attention?
    It’s so profound to simply pause and ask those of ourselves to fully live and participate in life.

    I am honored that you shared this for #ForgivingFridays – what a blessing! Will share this week in my upcoming post. Many blessings of joy xx Debbie
