8. Dancing to the music of life –
Accentuating moments of our lives through music helps us appreciate the silence around. It also becomes a checkpoint for a memory, something to remember it by. How often does such a beautiful thing occur?
9. Breathe –
This is something we have been doing since we were born, with or without being mindful. Once in a while, or when the going gets tough, let go of all thoughts, all burdens, empty both mind and heart. And just breathe. Some mindful, slow breaths and you will be brought back to the pace you function best at. It helps us appreciate the life that is there in us, which is greater than anything out there. Literally.
10. Connect with people and thus, with yourself –
Here’s to actually reaching out and connecting with the people in our lives, thanks to the many virtual mediums out there. Life’s convenient for us now, with so many ways to reach out and communicate with someone. The pleasure of setting up a bond or re-establishing the connection that once was there. Very few can match the wholesome bliss.
So, here’s an ode to the life that we have at our own hands, most of which we spend pursuing the big moments that come our way. But while we get busy looking for the landmarks, we skip the very small yet beautiful and remarkable moments that contains the actual beauty of life, which actually go onto make the larger-than-life moments we wait for.
“Great things are not done by impulse, but by a series of small things brought together.” – Vincent van Gogh
