Having slept for many hours, I had my eyes wide open as I faced my day.
Walking in the brisk air, purposeful, but not racing, I had my eyes wide open to see the sights of the city.
Having nowhere to be but home, I had my eyes wide open to what interested my kids.
Having a few moments of quiet, I had my eyes wide open to look for what might be.
Having a little time to stop, I had my eyes wide open to understand what just is.
Having travel time on a bus from A to B, I had my eyes wide open about my path.
Because I said "yes" when I could and "no" when I needed to, I tried to keep my eyes wide open about what was really important.
Sometimes, half the battle in life is keeping our eyes wide open--even when we're tired, even when what we're doing seems to leave us in a tunnel. Eyes wide open means we are ready to notice, ready to react, ready to adjust. And when we're not quite sure where we're going, eyes wide open and ready are the safest ways to be.
