I started to noticed how small changes in our daily commutes can bring a complete different outlook at our existence. An acts of kindness from a fellow passenger, a lovely sunny day that gives you a sense of indulging happiness, not any particular reasons just that kind of feeling that puts a spring in your steps, it brings a smile on your face and everything seems to be a lot lighter, as you start noticing that even the air is permeated by the smells of sweet flowery scent. Small things in our lives whatever is in the weather or the sight of a cute dog walking past it makes us feel grateful for what we have.
Gratefulness its underrated nowadays! We are ever so entangled in this web of work engagements, professional networking, business meetings, and for those who have a family is often a maniac juggling of school runs and sports activities afterwards... not to mention the weekends when the day starts a 6am on the dot!
So, I am asking WHEN do you actually allow yourself to connect with your own inner thoughts, to look around and notice your very next immediate environment, to feel that lightness of being?
