In the end we shall have had enough of cynicism, skepticism and humbug, and we shall want to live more musically-
Living in the moment’ rather than being trapped inside a hazy daydream, we fully experience more of life.
Without ever realizing it, most of us spend much of our time trapped inside of our daily lives. We are unconscious to the world evolving around us, sleep walking through the day.
Are you piloted by the daily routines that force you to live inside your thoughts rather than in your “life“?
Our journey in life is A to B, our lives seem longer as they slow down and when we begin to ‘show up – being fully present’, but happier too. A classic win – win situation!
Here are a few ideas to help the “slowing down” process:
Walk- Walking is hands down one of the purest forms of exercise/movement available. Need a way to relive stress and give your sloppy mood a boost? Walk. A flowing walk puts the world in perspective, walking is also a brilliant way to feel alive no matter how dreary the start of your week has been.
Breathe- Breathe: Whenever you become angry, stressed, anxious, or when you feel a pissy mood coming on. See breathing as a breath of fresh air into the now. Breathe.
Happiness is looking at the same “things” with a different set of eyes. Life only happens here (not on this blog), at this very moment, snuggled up in your jammies, enjoying a glass of wine.
I feel like living in the moment, fully happy, must be in the air, because it was the topic of one of my blog posts this week, and a few other blogs I follow. I love that they all are the same thread, but are so different based on the writer. ❤
I have found that talking and writing about meditation is eerily similar to pulling teeth at times 🙂 All kidding aside this is a very passionate topic to me. I believe that if more well intentioned people would focus on meditation a tad more rather than looks and physical appearance … Their journey to “whatever” would be that much more fulfilling.
I’ve been going through a ton of stress with work lately – so much adrenaline my chest hurts… I just realized on Saturday how shallow my breathing was. Once I started breathing more deeply the tension in my chest started too lift. Great post my friend.
Work has been the same here as well, just one thing after another. No matter how hard the day is a few moments to focus on our breath is time well spent. Take care this evening and be well!
I shall thank you. You too.
“Happiness is looking at the same “things” with a different set of eyes.” I like that. It’s amazing how things look differently when you just shift your perspective a little.
It truly is amazing how life presents itself when we look at a bit differently 🙂 Take care today and be well.
Here’s to shifting perceptions. A daily struggle for me. Reading your blog helps. With effort I I try put it into practice. It’s not easy for me right now; too many things out of my control are going on. Out of my control, but requiring vast amounts of energy and too much paperwork. I love the Dalai Lama and the things he says, but he doesn’t have a mortgage, or need a job, or need a better-paying job. He doesn’t have bills to pay or cars to repair, so doesn’t he have it easier than most?
I’m glad to hear that reading my blog helps, I honestly and passionately mean this. You ask a really good question that quite frankly, we’d have to discuss in person 🙂
I’d love to be able to discuss it. Perhaps we will meet someday.
Please feel free to email at: firstname.lastname@example.org
We can chat a bit more this way 😉 I hope you have a great weekend!
You’re so kind to offer. I may take you up on that.
I had a tough few weeks but it is starting to improve (I think). Thanks for caring.
