How can we appreciate and enjoy life’s beauty despite the demands and annoyances of daily life? Have you forgotten to take time to breathe and smell the flowers? Well, as they say, always live your day as if it’s your last, so you might as well be happy and make the most of it each day.
1) Re-connect with the people around you. Appreciating the beauty of life is also about bonding and re-connecting with the people who make us happy. Improving our friendships and relationships with the people who matter to us makes us enjoy the beauty of life more. So go ahead, bond with your long-lost pals you never saw many years ago and update each other with the latest happenings in your lives.
It’s a fun and rewarding experience.
2) Enjoy the simple joys of living. Yes, all the small things in our lives that make us smile, savor them, relish them. It can be your favorite food, re-watching your favorite movie of all time, checking out your Twitter or Facebook, walking your dog, cooking your favorite dish for your family and friends. It can actually be anything; it may not be a fantastically extraordinary event, but some of your simple joys and pleasures in life can make you smile more.
3) Be one with nature; the universe has gifted us with nature to refresh and heal us from the daily stresses and pressures of day-to-day living, especially in the city.
If you plan to have that nature trip, well then, go for it–for it’s truly worth it. Basking in the vision of catching a sunset or having that picnic with your family is one way of enjoying the beauty of life.
Be Curious Like the World’s Geniuses
So, just because you became an adult, you assumed you knew all there was to know? Consider this—that is why, every now and again, we must revisit our childhood. Research has found out that 42% of college graduates have never bothered to read another book after college.
Don’t be like them—remember, learning never stops when you start graduating. Be curious—it’s worth it. We’ve heard of the adage, “curiosity killed the cat”, but for the eager, adventurous and the daring, well, it may certainly skilled them. The path to an interesting life is waiting for you if you can rediscover your ability to be curious—just as you were in your youth.
Albert Einstein said it best, “I have no special talent. I am only passionately curious.” That’s why if you want to be far from being a mediocre and be more like a genius, be curious. Remember that apple theory which fell to the ground? Many people saw that it fell, but only Isaac Newton only asked why.
So, if you want to be curious, go ahead and ask questions anyway—be inquisitive. And also consider some ideas (which you may think seem far-out) that, who knows, may work anyway. You learn a lot from others, so talk to them and hear what they have to say and be open to their views and opinions.
And try to experiment with different stuff, for a change. If you’re a loyal follower of action movies, why not try watching foreign films for once? Who knows—you may come to love it and enjoy it more. For curiosity’s sake, it’s time to break barriers–life can be exciting with all its eclectic variety.
