Our plans don’t always go exactly the way we want them to. But that is as it should be, unplanned, often having a powerful impact.
…you were at a party and said that joke in perfect timing, but you thought it wouldn’t have sounded the way it did – great
…you were running late for the bus but it was also two minutes late, allowing you to get to Z on time
…you were thinking of what to write in a text message to a friend, but when actually came to writing it, it read better than you initially thought
…you dreamt of doing something, perhaps a career, or spending lunchtime with your family one day, but it turned out to be better than what you originally thought. The lunch was beautiful, and the conversation was flowing
Power of thinking and doing
Simply by thinking about something is power – it shows original thought, it shows that you are able to actually achieve and do something! So the next time (which will be very soon) you plan something, think of its power and soak it all up – it’s powerful stuff.
Okay, I am sorry if I seemed to have disappeared lately. I am home (on the beautiful island of Ireland) to spend Easter with my family and friends. But this post is really inspired by the short aeroplane journey to get here!
I don’t really have a lot of time to investigate, but I am sure someone once said:
It’s the simple things in life that make the biggest difference
If no one said that, then I’ll happily take credit for that. But what I am trying to get at is that life is full of simple things which we often take for granted. That sometimes includes family and friends. Let me explain better:
On the plane I was in the sky for about 45 minutes, but when on earth getting on with my life, I often forget that the sky is there in all its beauty, right above our heads
As I was landing in to beautiful Belfast, the fields surrounded the resediential areas – but do we appreciate green things enough?
As I was flying over the Isle of Man, I noticed that they too are an island (much, much, much smaller) but yet they are surrounded by lovely calm water too
Appreciate the simple things
After really seeing these simple things (water, fields, blue sky) I really thought that our world is really nice, and it would be even nicer if we appreciated how nice our world actually is. Our sky will continue to change, regardless of what we feel like. The sea can go from one of calm to smashing waves due to the wind. But no matter what happens to these simple things, we don’t really see them as a huge change. Or at least, I didn’t until this post!
Thanks for letting me share some of the many simple things of life in this short and sweet post
I felt I needed to write something after I spent a great weekend at home with my family and friends. I also felt that I needed to write something which everyone could relate to – life.
Everyday we are lucky enough to take on the world as we wake up in the morning. For some this could involve waking up beside a partner. For some this could be waking up (at home) with your bother(s) or sister(s). For some this could be waking up with someone you brought into the world – your son or daughter. Whatever way you start the day, it is really important to remember that you’re you!
Being able to share a life event with someone makes life seem enhanced. Getting a smile off another human being for being you is priceless. I bet everyone reading this can remember a morning over the last seven days when they felt good?! Perhaps because you saw another person feel good too!!!
If we are happy with ourselves, feel good about ourselves the chances of us having more smiling encounters with other people in our lives increases tenfold.
Eat more fruit – if you’re good on the inside it’ll show on the outside
Recongise that there is only ever going to be one you on this planet – no one else will be like you! Appreciate it more today than you did yesterday
Here’s one sentence I was thinking of whenever writing this post:
Life is short, so make it sweet, and share it with as many people who appreciate sweet things!
