My angsty post last time about Panera should remind me to take a deep breath and ask myself if all of this will matter in 10 years (or really, 10 minutes). It won't. It didn't. Hey, that was a poor use of my energy. Moving on...
I watched a good 18 minute Ted Talk this morning to get inspired for my day (I needed a small pick me up this morning...). It's a little gloomy at times but the message is clean, uninhibited appreciation for life. Not a bad thought to start out my day with. Here it is!
Deep breath. I will get through this. I will get a job. Life will be good. No. Life already IS good. Attitude. Awareness. Authenticity.
When I looked at my desk today through the eyes of a three year old (as suggested by the Ted Talk), I gained a better appreciation of my little nook. I mean, the colors alone attract attention, not I want to paint a picture, and all of the little giraffes everywhere? They are begging to be played with. The windows? Can you believe all the motion that's happening outside? I am up so high! I'm like a princess in a castle!
Is this procrastination?
Did the awareness and enjoyment of my surroundings become a waste of time? A lesser priority? Is enjoyment of the little things ever the lowest priority? And if it is, do you still find time to do it?
Yes, ok, namaste, I get it, this blog is all about inspiring things now. I think I can feel my husband rolling his eyes at me :)
