We live in a time where it’s very important to never stop learning. Learn about people and places and things. There’s a story behind everything, and life is about discovering these stories and understanding how they can connect to you. It is when we stop learning that we stop progressing and improving.
More is more and less is less. And at this moment in time, I think we could all use more. More laughter. More happiness. More positivity. More freedom. More adventure. More communication. The way we treat ourselves and the way we treat each other is more important than anything else. If we don’t do good to ourselves and other people, we can’t bring goodness into the world.
This is why I encourage everyone to go and do what you’ve been hesitating to start. Begin the hobby you’ve been meaning to try. Attend the class that you’ve been waiting to go to. Invite the friend to dinner. Have another chocolate. Start writing your book. It is when we fill our minds with positive thoughts and actions that we can spread positivity to others. When we’re productive, we feel fulfilled. When we’re fulfilled, we share with our friends and family. When you build connections with friends and strangers, the bonds between each other help shape new ideas and ways of thinking. More creativity. More action. More good vibes. More life.
Be present. If there’s one thing I strive for every time I do something, it is to stay focused. It’s easy to be distracted when you’re out with friends or doing something on your own, but when you really take the time to concentrate on an activity, you can get a lot more done than if you were to multitask. When someone speaks to you, listen. When you’re reading, absorb the information. When you’re outside, disconnect from the grid. When you’re fully present, you start to see and hear differently because you get the entire picture.
