In the past year, my commute time to-and-fro work has tripled. What used to be a 20 minute joy ride to work is almost close to an hour now. My close friends around me know of this fact because not a day goes by when I haven’t complained about it. But over the course of time, I have realized the little personal journey I go through each day on my long commute. I take the public transit (two to lay down the facts) and can do the following. I dare not encourage you to try them if you’re the one behind the wheel. Haha!
How can thou contemplate on thy life with no time for thee, I ask ye’
Being busy’ has become a recurrent response to when asked, “how are you?” Has busy become how we are rather than who we are? Amidst the “busy” lives we claim to have, hitting the pause button and reflecting on our life goes a long way in our mental sanity. When we are sane, the people around us are sane. Am I right?
Ain’t it a long time since you enjoyed your cup of coffee in peace and serenity, completely ignoring the hustle and bustle of the society around? “Look outside for inspiration, go inside for the answers” was my today’s lesson of the day (Courtesy: Elysha). How can we hear those answers softly being whispered to us without a sense of inner calm.
Flooded with fancy gadgets and technology in this modern era, how often do we chance the opportunity to pick up a nice new book, flip through each of its crispy white pages and drown ourselves in a whole different world. A world of new dreams, numerous possibilities and infinite wisdom!
Only when all has been done and the soul has been nourished, does our truest and highest potential manifest outside.
Would I love to have a car to drive myself around especially on cold wintry evenings when I need to walk 7 blocks to run my errands or on sick days when I want to catch some extra sleep and yet not be late for work? Heck, of course!! But, that would mean giving up on this personal voyage with my inner self that I have every single day!
