The little things matter, and the big things are just acknowledgement of the small sacrifices. Life is beautiful sometimes, and it calls to our souls. Staying in the same place for too long can give you tunnel vision. I read this book that said by doing the same things everyday we do not receive new information so we end up living a mediocre life we are not happy with.
Travelling is great way of gaining a new perspective, whether it be to the forest or a different country. It gives hope and it opens up creativity. All of a sudden new ideas start to develop within us, we see that we are part of something great. Isn’t it weird how, right now, some lots of miles away someone is just going about their day. There was once a time when other continents were a figment of our imagination but now outer space is what we wonder about.
When birds sing outside, it’s a connection with the wild, with the masters of song and rhythm. It’s beautiful. Engaging in life brings the experience of being alive. No wonder some people become adrenaline junkies, we are addicted to feeling alive. Being around other people, driving that fast car, near death experiences, death itself makes us open our eyes to the life that we possess. It’s invigorating.
Some of us are plagued with fear and anxiety, but the truth is those are not life threatening at all even though they seem like it. Sweating, heart palpitations, it’s a sign of being alive and we need to just break free of that by engaging with those things that scare us the most. The reward is amazing, it’s that realisation that you are stronger than you thought. The impressions we make on each other no longer matter, but instead what matters is that feeling of being alive.
This morning, I just sat by the window and observed life. Cars passing by, who knows where they’re going, birds flying and singing even on the verge of winter, my cat just being my cat, and slowly sipping my herbal concoction in the calm of my living room. The little things definitely matter. Then something came into my mind, a post I saw on Instagram about how in this moment I have achieved some of the things I had once dreamt of, and right there, I felt it, HAPPINESS. Of course emotions are fleeting but I was so inspired I decided to share it with you.
I don’t know what goes on in everyone’s life but I know that moments like this are worth sharing. So don’t hesitate to share in the comments section. Anyway, being a part of life makes a huge difference. It’s scary, and sometimes difficult but usually our minds are the only limitation that we have. We are our minds and our bodies, we are not separate. I feel that realising this has brought so much to me, I realise how much there is to take in at any given moment whether good or bad and it’s about engaging with it. That’s what my life has become, maybe this idea will change but I will enjoy it as much as I can until a new way of thinking comes along. Engage in life and set yourself free.
