Breaking the daily routine – Mind Talk

Breaking the daily routine - Mind Talk

We grow up in a society which trains you all your life that you have to finish school with good grades and that you have to do your best to find a well paid job so you will be able to afford a big house.

While you are on that path does somebody care why some subjects in school are simply not your cup of tea? Everything is brought down to numbers and grades and dates. When you finally survived the school perio and you think that your life is now about to begin, you stumble into a job which chains you again. This time you are not chained to your studydesk, but this time its an office. Working 9-5 and thinking about your life. Your freedom. Your purpose. You see the clear blue sky of a warm summer day – through your office window. By the time when you will leave the office the weather will not be the same as right now in this moment and disappointment kicks in. You may think to yourself that you lost another wonderful chance to enjoy your day. Your evening is already packed with your daily tasks at home and before you know it the day is over and you lie in your bed.. thinking about the next day and that everything will be exactly the same as today. Daily routine is cruel.

After you live your life like this for a while you actually start to miss out on the small joys of life. The longer this routine goes on, the bigger the things you miss. You then fall into a big and dark hole. You start to question your life, yourself and you search desperately for an exit out of the routine. You want to go back to the life full of wonder and miracle. You want to feel the freedom again. You want to make choices everyday that benefit you personally.

You listened your whole life to what other people expect from you and how your life should be lived and how it should unfold. If you were waiting for someone to hold up a huge Stopsign.. then here it is! download

Now is the time to change your life! Free yourself from expectations, chains and timetables which do not benefit you. You are the one in charge here. Nobody else.

I dont say drop all your responsibilities. Take your responsibilities serious. But try to change your view on the world. How? Let’s pretend its a normal day on which you have to go to work. Your old mindset would be like “ and again another of those days “ followed by a deep sigh. You could also try to really be in the moment while you go to work. Pay once again attention to the birds singing. The warmth of the sunrays on your skin. Smile at people you meet on the way. If you give someone a smile – 9 out of 10 times you will receive a smile back. This is pure positive energy. It will lift up your mood.  When you arrive at the office, don’t think about the colleagues that really go on your nerves. Instead try to keep the positive energy of the birds, the warm sunrays and the friendly smiles you collected on your way to work. While you work your hours try not to check the clock every few moments to see if you are already allowed to go home. Try to be in the moment. Right now this job provides you the money you need to do fun stuff in your free time. Dont urge yourself to not look at the clock at all. Forbidding yourself something doesnt work anyway. Simply try to be right here in this moment. Just that. Time will fly by. Time is not existent anyway. It’s all in your head. Dont let the mood of people around you influence you. They are simply in the place where you were yesterday before you decided to change your life.

We all have tasks after work. But also those tasks can be sweetened. Realize why you are doing certain things.

If you are renovating your house, then realize that you are doing it for a reason. You do it to feel better in it afterwards. You have something to look forward as soon as its finished.

You have to fill in your taxes? Everyone has to. The universe is not punishing you. It’s simply something thats part of this reality. Do it as accurate but fast as you can. Afterwards you can proudly say that you managed it in no time.download (1)

Everything can seem different as soon as we shine a different light on it.

If you shine light on it out of a negative point of view, chances are that things will take longer, be more difficult, more frustrating etc.

If you shine light on it out of a positive point of view, the things you have to do will not disappear. They will seem less heavy. You will feel that you accomplished something. And you will have more time to do some fun stuff in life.

Life is an adventure. You didn’t come into this life to work your ass off. You can here to enjoy the ride. Don’t let your daily tasks destroy the beauty and the miracles that are all around you.

It’s all a question of perspective.

Will you make this day a lovely memory or do you want to stay stuck in your daily routine?

Lots of Love,
Neelah

Forgiveness After The Storm

Forgiveness After The Storm

The muse of poetry in its depths stalls the ensue of thee,Drowning in the sparse spectacle of hope left, one dives into the waters of misery.Triabilsing in the painful stance of existence, death in its allure creeps behind,To be or not be in the bane of tormenting breaths, in their truth one seems to find,

The hostility that binds, convulsion in its gloating flair laughs hysterically at the corpse of being,Dreariness to live in its slow burn writhes the only ounce of light left to see.The void of embracing the freshness of unadulterated air forges to question the beauty,Of living a life that could lead in the lightness of radiance and the smiles of unbridled glee.

The trueness of being lapses in the oscillation of turbulence and the sea of calm,Yet the tides of uncertain syllables that breed animosity render the sou

Beyond Materialism

Most people can understand the happiness that comes from purchasing something for oneself when we talk about needing some retail therapy. Can shopping truly improve our mood?

The Aesthetic Epidemic: Understanding the Roots of Lookism

The Aesthetic Epidemic

We care about more than just ourselves – we care about our loved ones, our communities, and the world around us. We are affected by tragic events, especially when a child is murdered, regardless of where it happens. It deeply impacts us and makes us feel disheartened. Moral evils raise doubts about the goodness of the world and the value of existence, especially for those who believe in a benevolent deity. However, anyone can contemplate the purpose and value of the universe in light of such evils. We may not need to worry about the value of the Universe and instead focus on finding value in our own lives or the lives of our loved ones. The concept of value is subjective and can be created by us.

The important question is what we should value or find pleasure in. Some people may try to ignore moral evil by focusing only on their own lives and loved ones, but this narrow perspective is unsatisfying for most. I

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

An Open Letter To The Hustlers

To be or not to be, to go all in or to unwind and relax, we question our dreams, running in constant chase of our quests to come true, we are the ones who never sleep. Dreamers we are called, the ones who passionately strive in the endeavours of the best they could ever be, here is a letter to me, a letter to you. In the stride of embracing the best you have ever been, nurture your soul before the onset of the abundance in you that lies unseen.

Too bold, too much for your age, you are doing too much, how often have you heard these notions been used to describe you? As we tirelessly strive to achieve the next goal we have in our mind, we are often told that we are being hard on ourselves, to enjoy life a little. Life in its entirety passes by us in its dynamic flair, and the existence we envisage holds unique individuality to each one of us. The choices one makes for themselves belies them and them only, and t

How To Remain Centered And Calm In Face Of Difficulty

My life is a mess and I have nothing to be grateful about! I witness myself say this phrase from time to time, where life plonks us into the desperation of ebb and flow of wilderness and things not going in our favour.

It is easy to say we are grateful and in complete balance when things are going well and life feels like the warm embrace of the sun shining on a Sunday morning. But the real test lies in remaining grateful and centred when life feels like spinning out of control.

While it is easier said than done, here are some reminders that might help you get through the days that feel like a burden –

1) This too shall pass, no moment in time that feels permanent loses its impermanence. We often lose hope when things don’t go our way and during these sad days, we should remember, that t

15 Most Liberating Thoughts For Someone Who Needs It

Our life unfolds in a succession of revelations of who we are. It is when we sit down and repeat the same sentence in our head over and over again, in every action we perform, every activity we indulge ourselves in, does it indulges into our existence as a habit.

The key to having a sense of liberation is allowing life to flow through, not forcing anything and more essentially not resisting change. I believe that our life improves in the direct proportionality of how often we are exposed to situations where are forced to challenge our age-old beliefs and counterfeited perceptions and seek the greater version of ourselves. When we get too comfortable in the comfort zones we build for ourselves, we do not grow into the people we are meant to be. Sadly most people embrace change only when metamorphosis is the less painful and only possible option.

I know that
