How many positive words being with E?
Do all these things! Not just once, but as often as possible!
Do this – right now.
Explore the world around you. You don’t even have to move far.
Take off your socks and shoes, close your eyes.
Can you feel the grass tickling your toes?
Is it damp, or dry?
Is the sun warming your face, or a breeze wafting your hair? Can you smell anything?
Feel your breath, moving in and out.
Experiment. Breath deeper. Hold your breath and count to 10. Let it out slowly.
Examine. Lie on your stomach and look closely at the ground. Are there bugs? Imagine being an ant, so small, yet filled with purpose.
Roll over and stare at the sky. Do you see the birds? What do you look like, to them?
It only takes a minute to find something new in your life.
The world is enormous, but our place in it becomes so small as we spend each day caught up in the trivia.
While you can, while you are free from responsibility, obligation and cares, have fun.
Try new things, tastes, textures.
Stop looking at what you’ll be doing when you are older. Be, now!
Don’t rush life. Live it.
