John Lennon was a wise man with many talents that I could only dream of. Here’s one of his many quotes:
Everything is going to be okay in the end,
If it’s not okay, it’s not the end.
But is this really true? If so all the worrying, sleepless nights etc. are all useless? Can we really trust that things will work out is the end? Yes, of course, looking back it is easy to see why certain things happened and other didn’t. We learn from our mistakes, if we don’t, they will reoccur to until we do. But does the universe, or whatever you want to call it, have a plan for each of us, to make the ‘ends’ meet so to speak?
If we want to live with a bit of peace of mind I guess we have no choice but to have a certain level of trust in things and the course of our lives. Mmmmm probably the hardest thing to do, even harder than going to the gym:-) just sit back, breathe and accept what is.
Remember that thrill you got when you were young doing something for the first time? Logical that as we get older we have ‘done’ most of the regular things. We have grown cultivated as to how to contain the excitement of feeling, seeing, tasting or having something for the first time.
Maybe as we get older and hopefully being a bit more conscious of what it is you are actually doing etc also makes a difference?
Whatever it is you really enjoy, try to ‘do it’ in an other way so you can experience that ‘excitement’ of the first time again? Set yourself goals or save for that trip… They saying that ‘life begins at the end of your comfort zone’ is definately true. Do something that scares you and you will feel your heartbeat going up:-)
Feeling this buzz will make you feel alive like nothing else wil.
Oeps…! For sure this is something I should practice more often. Leaving a silence can sometimes lead to a much more meaningful topic or idea. Grrhhh lessons in mindfulness:-)
What leaves a smile on your face? Gives you that feeling of being alive? Usually it’s the small things in life. Just make sure you are not to busy to notice them:-)
