I have been blind for way to long to see the beautiful things that are right in front of me, I have really started to look at the all the little things that I have been neglecting because I put everything else first, especially the life choices I have made. I have been so focused on what I want tomorrow, next week, next month, next year, 5 years from now. I have forgotten the splendor that is right here! My life is so amazing and full of happy little things all I have to is stop and open my eyes!
Right now this moment is the perfect example! I am on my laptop writing this blog and the sun is rising I have the blinds up and the windows open a cool brisk breeze coming in, listening to the sounds of nature the birds chirping, trees swaying in the wind. My son sound asleep in his room. RIGHT NOW, this moment is all the little things that make me smile. It is the little steps that climb mountains, open your eyes to recognise all the little things that make you happy. They are right in front of you!
I will be back, I’m gonna go and open my eyes.
Your life, the good, bad and indifferent is always gonna be there. We have money problems, bills to pay, a job we have to do, commitments of life and relationship issues. They will always be there, unless you want to become a Buddhist monk, trust me I thought about it, but the celibacy thing just isn’t for me. Why do you let life stop you from seeing what’s there? We get so caught up in our lives, and life just keeps moving so fast, before you know what’s happened its been months, years or even decades. What have you done? What haven’t you done? How many little things have you missed?
You have created the life you live good or bad, you have done this by your actions and your reactions to situations. Right now is what matters, how are you going to be happy right now? The little things that make you happy are free! a smile from a stranger or a smile to a stranger, holding the door for someone, feeling the sun on your face, being in nature, laughing and being comfortable by yourself. There is no “list” of happy things you just have to open your eyes. Your fancy clothes, nice car, big house or fat bank account wont make you happy! Materialistic items just fill the quick need. We all like nice things but when you get them you almost immediately start looking for the next thing and the next and the next. When you make more money, you spend more money, you buy more things and then you need to make more money! on and on and on!. For almost everyone reading this if you stop and look around right now. You probably have a roof over your head, you probably have clothes on your back, and food in your belly. You are the richest person I know!
Even though this is the start of a new year, you don’t need a special day to change. Every day is a new day, every moment is a new moment, create something amazing and fill your life with the little things.
