While walking across the parking lot at the grocery store, something stung me on the fleshy part of my hand below my thumb. Since it flew away, I think it was a wasp .
For awhile after, the area throbbed and ached. I noticed how the cart handle felt because of the pain. I was more aware of the steering wheel and anything that touched that area. I was more aware of my hand.
It got me thinking about how much I don’t notice. Sometimes I get so caught up in my head, or caught up in the things I need to get done. Sometimes it takes a sting to look up and look around.
What does it take for you to look around?
