A lot of you people can probably relate to this right?
Getting up for work, scrolling through the daily routine of things. A repeating pattern that seems so simple and unchanging and we’re all tired of it.
We’ll hope for the weekend to come because that’s the only time things change and get interesting (and you don’t have to wake up so freaking early).
We see most days as ordinary, bleak, and lifeless, life is simply passing you by, unnoticed.
When you went to work this week, could you describe what the morning air felt like, it’s texture? Did you notice the color of sunrise?
We walk through our days, weeks, and months in this way. Heck, some stay like this their entire lives!
If we could only will ourselves into noticing natures gifts–into being aware! We could fill our lives with an endless reserve of color and beauty.
It’s Not That Easy
The concept is simple, like most things, but it’s application is difficult. There are many ways to achieve this. One of the best methods (Which I try and use) is easy. Just take time out of your day and look around. Analyze. Feel. A few minutes is all you really need to do it. Once you get the hang of it, you’ll be able to stretch the time limit. A few minutes becomes an hour, and then from an hour you go to a day.
You have to be able to recognise how you yourself are feeling and achieve at least the slightest bit of metacognition.
Just to give an example of what I mean, I’ll ask this – Have you notice that when you breath, the air you’ve breathed in is cooler than the air you’ve breathed out? That the grass sparkles in the morning light.
Probably not, right?
But that’s what I’m talking about. I’ll finish up with this.
If you want to improve how you feel in every day life, you’re first going to have to recognise what your feeling. After all, its kinda hard to heal when you don’t know the cause.
Look deep within you soul and see the beauty, the good over the bad.
Time to put this into practise myself I think.
