THOUGHTS ON LIVING


February has come to an end; and as the rest of the year flashes by, I would like to make it a point to ensure that every moment is lived with purpose, and every action is backed up by great love. It is therefore my wish to share a few thoughts on how to be more present during each moment, despite the fast paced rhythm of our lives:

no.1 | have a lovely breakfast

Even if it is a cup of coffee and a piece of toast with jam, make it beautiful and enjoy your little meal, either by reading something lovely,  or making a mental picture of all the great possibilities within this new day; instead of the long to do list and the dreadful thought of not getting it finished.

no. 2 | step outside for a bit

Whether it is by a pressing deadline, a busy schedule or long hours in front of a little bright screen, take the time to pause and reach out to others around you. Maybe a little phone call, message, or remark, but make it a point to step outside of yourself and make someone else a bit happier.

no. 3 | document your day

At the end of each day, find time to jot down moments of the day which were little victories and those which might need work. Learn from every strength and weakness, be grateful, and look forward to a brand new day. A couple of favorites here and here.

  1. What lovely sentiments. So small and easy, yet I can see that doing just these three little things could make a big difference. Thank you for the reminder.
