Find beauty in everything you do. I’m going to tell you about a regular day I had.
I came to the US 3 weeks ago for an elective course (kind of like an internship before graduation). The experience has been beyond amazing, and I still have a few more weeks here.
It was a Friday afternoon and I got off work early. I needed some groceries so I decided to walk to a nearby store. Ever since I came here, I shopped at farer places and usually drove there. But this particular afternoon I really felt like walking in the fresh air. It was -1 degrees Celsius, but I was still going to walk.
And I enjoyed every minute of it.
Having to work, study, or do whatever we have to do always seems to make us nervous, anxious and in anticipation for it to finish. We really forget to take a walk and not be in a hurry… and just enjoy it.
I was really really really cold, I wished my coat could cover my face and my eyes and my hands and my toes and my hair! Then, I stopped at a traffic light and decided to look up at the sky. And it was blue and beautiful. I took a good look around and realized that I’m in the middle of a very unique city. And I’m only here for one more week, so I should enjoy every minute of it.
So much time passes while we’re too busy worrying, anticipating, and chasing after something that we sometimes forget to just take a walk.
It’s very important to chase your dreams, but don’t forget to live while you do.
