Your Life Without the Rose Colored Glasses
Do you see or look for the beauty that is around you while you are going about your day or week?
For instance! Do you see the weed or the beauty of the flower of the weed? Do you see the not so nice of a bee or the beauty of the bee and what makes it so unique? Do you go on the defensive with birds or watch and listen to the beauty of birds? Do you see the not so good in things or the sunny side of things?
Do you ever feel like you are chasing life or life is chasing you? Why can it not be more natural? I have a possible answer to that question. Human beings overcomplicate things and it is a race of competition between the rational and the emotional!
There are times I feel burnt out from working with the public, overstimulated from all the technology and just done with the fast paced environment. I have to remind myself in those moments to do something for myself, especially something that I love to do! I have to remind myself to go out to have some fun and experience life by exploring and adventuring. I seek out happiness that gives me pleasure, satisfaction and fulfillment that I am looking for in living my life!
I want to be alert and aware as well as open when it comes to what is happening in my life! I seek out happiness by looking outwards. I am learning that I also need to seek out happiness from within myself too!
I want to be more attentive and be more in the moment! I prefer to focus in on the task at hand and take my time. I take pleasure from that, want more of it and it makes me happy too! I feel inspired and motivated to get out there and gain experiences. I feel reenergized to take on new things and new challenges.
I want to enjoy the process throughout the experience! I do not want to predict the outcome or end result. I want to wait and watch it unfold! I enjoy that high from being excited, especially when you are fully experiencing the moment at hand. I want to celebrate the accomplishments, the milestones and the successes!
The PRESENT Moment
I do not like being uncomfortable and out of place! However, I feel I benefit and am rewarded for experiencing the NEW in my life too! Those challenging moments are great life lessons in experiencing growth and gaining life experiences. I enjoy radiating in that goodness, richness and happiness!
I realize now that I have the ability to embrace ALL moments when it comes to experiencing and living my life! I feel more open and accepting of what is happening around me. I truly want to see the beauty and the positiveness in what I experience every day in my life!
