Zen Proverb on Noticing

We do not so much look at things as overlook them. —Zen proverb

When I read this quote, it made me stop and think about what I am overlooking. What are you overlooking?

I am guilty of overanalyzing and also getting wrapped up into my own thoughts. What is going on around you just waiting to be noticed, appreciated, and seized?

One thing I tend to overlook is what works and what I have done; I tend to fixate on what went wrong or what more I still have to do. What is already working in your life? What have you already accomplished today, this week, this past year?
