how to appreciate your life

Posted on: February 3, 2011

Look around you. Right now. No, really. Just look around.

How much did you really see what’s there? If you’re in a familiar setting, it’s easy to stop truly perceiving.

Look at one object, or one person, as if it’s the first time you’ve ever seen it. Now, peer at it. Deeply. As if you could see its true nature – if you only looked with enough intent.

If you’re bored, you may have forgotten the incredible everything that’s right in front of you.

Today: Cultivate curiosity about the world around you. See things anew. Notice the small details. Breathe into them.
