The Beauty in Everyday Life

Dear dreamer, student- basically visionary

Have you ever felt numb? Like the epitome of Perry’s lyrical master piece ‘like a plastic bag drifting through the wind.’

You’re so paper thin that life is just passing you by.

Here’s the thing.

Our big dreams tend to cast a shadow on the everyday, we often get so caught up in the future that we forget to live in the present. The now suddenly becomes haunting, and you’re itching with anxiety, life seems to be riding on your back, goals are not met, expectations are not exceeded, everything seems to be falling apart.

The truth is, your mind is cluttered, and just like the sink after every meal you need to scrub, rinse, and clear.

‘If you want to conquer the anxiety of life, live in the moment, live in the breath.’ – Amit Ray

As zen as it may be, mindfulness is the answer. Taking time to calm the mind or at least train it to be still enhances self-awareness, making the mundane not so boring but fulfilling.

Beginning the day becomes less of a chore with a clearer head.
