Recently my Mum recommended a series on Netflix called ” Kindness Diaries”. With an open mind I clicked episode one and started to watch. With Brennan watching as well we both sat , fixated on the tv. By the end of the first episode we both sat there- thinking and then discussing. I don’t want to post any spoilers, but I will say this: Wow! What an eye opening show. It’s now made me think about how I need to live my life. With kindness, and freedom of power, money,etc. Live with love and laughter, give when you can, receive the great things that come along with being a human.
We live in such a fast paced society, buying,eating, go go go! Never taking a minute to just stop, look at ourselves and our loved ones and just be happy and grateful for what we have and where we are. So many in the world have nothing and yet are the most well rounded, happy and self reliant people. They don’t base their happiness on money, things or who gives them what.
Happiness can be found in some the smallest places. With just a smile, hug or friendly hello you can make someones day a bit brighter.
I personally want to live better. I want less money, less things and more smiles, more love more life.
It’s hard to change the way you’ve spent your whole life thinking. I’m negative, I generally dislike the population for one reason or another, I suffer from OCD so I find life hard to enjoy moments when I’m living in my head worrying and anxious about every detail. I don’t have a religion to focus my faith on, I don’t have hobbies or other creative outlets. So I NEED to change. Not change me as a person because I like myself the way I am, I would however like to change my way of thought. Change how I live, base my happiness on the energy I put forth in the world, maybe just maybe even seek out a higher power and find a religion that makes me feel great about life and gives me faith to pursue a longer and more peaceful existence. I’ve always said nature is my religion and I strongly believe in that. It’s where I feel calm and at home. Barefoot in dirt with the the Earth surrounding me. I need to get back to that mind frame. Live simpler and have an abundance of happiness.
This wont be easy and it wont happen over night but I’m promising myself that I can do this. I also want to get back into blogging- so look out world, here I come!
