Day 30 of 30-day challenge to improve my awareness:

▪what do I notice in everyday situations?

▪what can I learn from my observations?

▪what can I adapt?


Walking home from a breakfast meeting I noticed this sign and how many interpretations I could have of its meaning. The hand could mean stop, no entry or don’t go any further.

Or a much more inviting interpretation is hello, welcome and come in. (As it’s a gastropub I expect its was intended to be the latter).


I can be more conscious about the meaning I am making of signs, conversations, gestures, conversations and emails.

My interpretation impacts my reactions and sense of possibilities or obstacles.

    it often happens to me. Signs I see catch my attention and make me aware of the nuances and different perspectives depending on the moment/time of my day, my emotional status, my physical conditions, my attention to the world around me.
    This sign suggests me human contact, socialising.

  • Thank you for sharing your own journey Sylvana, this has stimulated me to become more aware in the tiny and busy moments as to what is around me (something I could definitely improve upon).
    This particular post made me think about the impact our own perceptions and mindsets have on our interpretations and in turn decisions.
