What’s up world? Its your boy Peekay. I have been thinking about routines and the concept of mindfulness. I hear people saying “Its the same old shit again and again.” With all due respect, that is bullshit! I have been practicing mindfulness and I can notice subtle differences each day. For example, when I get up, I just sit in silence and eat and enjoy each moment. That way, I can enjoy the moment and notice more things that I usually would overlook. This morning, I noticed the beauty of the fog, the clouds, and the graceful movements of the birds flying on north! Then I found some inspiration early in the morning so I feel motivated for the day ahead! Furthermore, when I work in Glendenning Hall on the loft, I took 5 minutes of absolute quiet to really see what the room has to offer and the unique art. From my mindful experiences, I learned that you find new things and you can view experiences via new lens. Returning to my morning example, I saw mornings as a chance to start and where I get more of my work done!!! So I embraced getting up early and I really learned to have quiet in the morning so I could ready myself for the day ahead. That way, I made the most out of each day and learned something new. Furthermore, I developed an impulse to give someone a compliment. I can’t have a good day without doing so. Today when I went to St. James for lunch, I thanked the Navy folks for their service to America and protecting my liberties. I brightened their day and their happiness only empowered me to come back and live my day to the fullest.
So if you think your life is boring, slow down and really look. You may know your routine, but there is something awesome that you overlooked. Just like the clouds or on the train, I suddenly realized the importance of the staff and I thanked them, when I got off the train. Everytime I ride Metro, I thank the train driver. Furthermore, I really appreciate how things work. Also, I learn to let others speak and really listen. We all have something awesome to contribute and I ask questions, as well as give answers. I really see people as unique and I further learn to like people for who they are, not for what they have. You are all awesome, because you are you and no one else. So let’s be mindful.
Peekizzle over and out! Namaste!!!!
