"The purpose of our lives is to give birth to the best which is within us." (Marianne Williamson - A Return to Love)
I love walking. We have a park here that has amazing trails, beautiful scenery, quiet - everything you would wish for.
I, unfortunately, am a creature of habit. I go to this wonderful park...and walk the same trail every time. So on Sunday, I changed it up some. I took a left off my usual path and discovered paradise. For years I have walked in this park, and never knew really how gorgeous it is.
I think we do that with life. We do the same things every day. Eat the same foods. Take the same route to work. Say the same things to our loved ones. It's really not surprising that humans turn off, shut down and "stop".
We stop learning, growing, becoming.
Prozac, instead of creating.
Doctor's visitis, instead of activity.
Bordom, instead of joy.
Perhaps, if we change up our lives a bit every once in a while, we would discover a new "us".
We all can:
Improve an already discovered talent or take a class to learn something you have always wanted to do.
Read a book from a section we normally don't even venture into.
Take a mini-holiday to a site nearby that we haven't been to before (or haven't been for a while).
Let us enjoy OUR lives. Enjoy who we are, and who we are becoming.
Joy to all.
