Before starting to journal my thoughts for this blog, my mind wanders to make a decision — should I make breakfast now? and then shall I sit down to write? Maybe I can dry the laundry, while I am up and running? and suddenly a ripple effects of to-do list forms at the back of our mind.
One thing leads to another, and the well-deserved attention that each of your ideas, simply gets lost. I am of the belief that each one of us has creative ideas ( a list of what-ifs) to live our lives, the mundane chores come in the way. We consciously give priority to some “other” task. And we all know it takes eons of effort — not to give in! That instant satisfaction of getting a chore done — that’s the high point of adulting.
Today I invite you to explore life beyond the mundane.
Carve out time to push away the chores to the bottom of your to-do list and get going.
The ideas, dreams, hopes, excitements have been waiting for you patiently, full of hope. We may fear there is nothing beyond. What if I don’t have any interest in my own? That’s the point, give yourself the permission to explore, to let go. You would be surprised to know what you find.
You may wonder who is waiting for you, here is what I found when I took the unexplored path —
an empty mandala art waits to be coloured
a journal waits for your deepest thoughts
a book waits to be read
a piece of music waits to be heard in solitude
a canvas awaits your imagination
a moment of nothingness waits to be enjoyed
an old recipe waits to be cooked
