For once, I realize what's happening around me.
« on: May 11, 2018, 09:35:10 AM »
The situation is rather awkward in the house, so I find distractions by stepping outside. It's strange how I enjoy doing things I didn't like before. I feel happy taking care of the plants in my small garden. I take a walk around the neighborhood. I notice the new buildings and the new people. The kids are growing up. Some of the parents feel as confused as I was. The list goes on.

Life is actually very rich if we bother to look around.

This kind of self-awareness is what makes complete people and the sad bit is that when most of us come to this realization, we keep wishing that we had done so much earlier. I think the point is that we should find joy in the small things we do by first understanding all that happens around us.

"Life is actually very rich if we bother to look around." It certainly is and I wish I had this self-awareness when I was younger instead of just getting on with what was happening in my immediate surroundings. Getting out there and observing, actually seeing things instead of just looking, has become a great pleasure for me. It makes me want to do something more - but I'm not sure what yet. Maybe more walking and exploring, maybe photography or painting. For now, I'm just happy enriching my life with who and what I see around me.

Much earlier indeed haidyl!! When we are in the throes of raising children and working a job, there is just no time to slow down and "smell the roses."  I used to sit down around 9:00 PM at night and be asleep in sight of 5 minutes. I am glad to say that now I really enjoy those warm afternoons on my front porch with a good book and a glass of wine

Photography is a great idea! It fits perfectly to my new routine of taking a walk. Maybe I will be able to capture some lovely photos along the way. Thank you for the inspiration!

On the other hand, I don't know if I would be able to look at the small details if I got the chance to return to my younger days. Youth is about looking far ahead, working for our dreams. We couldn't help but overlook the small details.
