In our modern and hectic world we pay far too little attention to the little things in life. When was the last time you paused for a moment on a walk and just let the moment, the impressions work on you?
Enjoy the moment
Try to stay awake and not get lost in the daily grind. Bring back that feeling from childhood, when you look closely at every object. Enjoy every moment in its full spectrum.
Also get used to seeing problems in the future no longer as such but as welcome challenges. As already described above, you can’t prevent something in life from coming out differently than you imagined it to be.
So make the best of it and see these challenges as another upgrade of your precious wealth of experience. Go from being a problem seeker who is thrown off course by unforeseen changes in the plan, to a problem solver who may get upset for a moment, but then work out a solution and implement it.
Take time for other people
No matter how stressful everyday life is, no matter how burned out you come home after work and long for your sofa. Get used to giving something back to your environment, whether you are acquainted or unfamiliar, every day. Be there for friends, seek conversation and just listen. Take an interest in the lives of those around you.
It hardly costs you any time or energy, but you are doing something good for both these people and yourself. At some point you may be in a position where you will be happy when someone does the same for you.
And when was the last time you had a good time with your friends? In my everyday life I always try to plan such periods for my friends and family consciously. And if I do want to do something on my own, then I like to write down my thoughts in the category ‘Ruthless Quotes‘.
Many good books with the finest quotes here on Amazon – make your best friends a nice gift.
