I was driving today and I thought, how beautiful life is. I looked up to the sky and saw the birds and the clouds and the helicopter that flew above me and I realised that although so many things can occur in somebody’s life that causes hassle and issues, it is one remarkable place.
How amazing is it that we can breathe in the cool, sweet air and walk with the breeze in our hair and look at the beauty that this world has to offer. I think that sometimes it can be good to just stop, take a break and take a minute to take in the views and the beauty that this world possesses. I feel that it puts our lives into perspective and makes us discover how amazing it is to be alive.
Sometimes, I get stroppy and annoyed about the little things that really shouldn’t matter. I get grumpy if I am tired or hungover when I should be embracing the beautiful life that I lead and remind myself of what I have. I am such a lucky person to have what I have. I have amazing friends, family and I am a healthy individual who has a good life. I have the rest of my life ahead of me where so many doors can open for me. The world is my oyster and I am so lucky for it.
I feel so sad for the people who are unwell and do not hold a good quality of life. When we have a first world problem and let something really not important get to us, we should really think about what is a benefit in our life. I wake up every morning healthy and happy where I can make plans freely and have the opportunity to do whatever I want where as there are people out there that do not. Some people have conditions where they can’t do what they want, and they wake up feeling horrible. We really need to take the time to put our lives into perspective and cling onto the positives in our lives. Yeah, it can be hard when there is something going on in our life which can bring us down but why don’t we pull on this and stand up tall, defeating this negative energy. Wake up, healthy and happy and change the thing that is trying to drown you.
I am so sorry to those that have horrible things going on in their life and I am sorry if you are not well which can make your life quite difficult to carry out. I find that pulling on the positives that remain in our life is so important, because there is always going to be a positive, however big or small.
Think of the beautiful children that live in undeveloped countries. They live in consistent poverty and lead a horrible life due to the environment they live in. However I have seen videos, photos or heard experiences from people who have visited and seen how happy they are regardless of the life they are being made to live in. You see them grinning at the potential of an education and giggling at the games they play outside. When I see this, it really gets me thinking. Do you know why? Because these children live in a dreary life where they do not have many positives aspects going on, however find the joy from something small but so important. Now how does that relate to us? Because we live in a culture where there is free healthcare, education, a roof over our head and family and friends who care and love us. There are people out there that do not live the luxury of love and a future, which we can take for granted.
I am just writing this because I want people to take a moment every now and then to look. Look at the place we live in and take in the beauty of what surrounds us. Think about how lucky we are and how we do live amazing lives. There can be obstacles that try and knock us down from time to time but overall we are so lucky for what we have. Try and remember that when you have the time. What we easily forget is what others crave. Do not let yourself forget it.
Until next time,
