..and right on track. I will (should) be updating this space every Sunday now! The past few weeks I’ve been here, there and everywhere. This is my version of a Sunday evening, relaxing on the sofa and it’s great!
In this blog, I will simply write an overall summary of how I’ve felt and where it’s lead me.
In my opinion
It’s all about enjoying who you are, where you are and what you have at the current time of your life.
Why sulk or feel sorry for yourself about what you can and can’t control, when you can train your mind to be comfortable in the place you are. We’re here for only a relatively short time – it’s important to remember this.
We live only to discover beauty. All else is a form of waiting
It can seem like a waiting game. This quote sums up perfectly how I imagine most people feel. Most feel heavily weighted to the waiting side of things, but through seeing what you see through your eyes in a positive, lighter light; it all becomes clear that, it is what it is.
I played drums in a concert on Wednesday and afterwards, I received praise on my playing. All of the hard effort, dedication, hours of practise. This is the waiting, the daily grind, which leads to the discovery of beauty or in a non-philosophical term, feeling pretty damn good. The discovery of this quote has been an important find.
This leads to an important idea
See what you see as an opportunity. All will unveil itself in time.
The other day
I was on my way back from Bristol after a crazy African Sabar Drumming session with Dave Smith (drummer for Robert Plant) and Batch (native of this music) I was on the Megabus (it was actually nice and new) and ended up sitting next to a girl who was also in her final year, we talked for the whole journey and at some point, she said she wasn’t into music. HOLD UP. Not into music?!? But wait, I thought, let’s try to discover what this really means. Turns out, it’s factors such as seeing specific artists, mood, time, place etc. that changed and directed her to certain types of music.
This was a great example and turning a closed road into an open road. Which leads me to the next point.
People tend not to remember how what you say.
But how you make them feel.
Moments like these, make you want to transfer a learned experience to all walks of life. I think that the person you talk to is always new, whether they are unfamiliar or familiar to you because, relations change and develop and it’s important to discover something about everybody. You’ll always find something!
