Word of the day: awareness

Awareness is the first step of growth and learning. Only by being aware do we know what we know, what we don’t know, and what we need to learn.

Once we are self-aware, we can then be aware of others and those around us. It’s all about the world in you. Then you in the world. And what you do with that awareness, well, that’s entirely up to you.

Yes. Awareness is a powerful thing.
