Moments of clarity happen when we let go and focus on the simple things. When you drown yourself in music and forget about the world
around you, because all you can hear is the music and all you can see is the people playing it. It’s like taking a shower after a long day. It’s a
moment of silence in a busy, busy world. These moments only happen so often, so it makes them easy to enjoy; no matter your age.
Doing new things and meeting new people allows you see the world differently. Every single person sees the world in a different way. The more people you meet in your life, the more understanding you will be. Every person you meet in your life gives you something that you didn’t have before you met them. The more people you meet, the more wealth you have, and no, not money wealth. Knowledge, joy and honesty is what you gain from obtaining a wider perspective on life. Every person has their strengths that they spread to others. Reaching out and meeting new people can change the way you look at things. When you have a wider perspective of the world, you are happier. Understand the challenges people face from their perspective and your life will change. Trying new things allows you to expand your world into something bigger, giving you experience. The more you see of the world, the more you understand.
So become friends with that new person in the neighborhood. You’ll be surprised what people know and what they have to share. Don’t be afraid to try new things, because when you try something new you have nothing to lose, but so much to gain. There is so much opportunity for everyone in this world no matter who you are or what your situation is, but you can not be afraid to seize it. When you try a new class, or try a new exercise, don’t be afraid. Make new friends, partner with someone you don’t know and you will leave with more than you came with. Carpe diem.
We are the children of our solar system, created by the same elements that build stars and asteroids.
We are made from the same atoms as our earth. We are connected to our planet, our mother, our home. We share the DNA that codes our universe, related
in a seemingly disconnected world.
As people, we are always doing. Usually our actions result in us obtaining something; a lesson, knowledge, a feeling or an object. When you read a story,
you learn the lesson it desires to teach you. When you exercise, your body and your mind gives you the joy of accomplishment. To set your sights on
a goal and accomplish it is the most incredible feeling; no matter how small or grand that goal may be. Whether it’s two more reps on the TRX Band
or holding that pose you struggle with for ten more seconds, that’s incredible. To defy your past and conquer the present moment you are living in.
The release of all the pain it took you to get to this moment creates pure happiness.
