“The present moment is filled with joy and happiness. If you are attentive, you will see it.” ― Thich Nhat Hanh
When the Voice takes the lead…
“I’d rather be on vacation now. Somewhere where it’s hot and sunny. A beautiful beach, tropical fruits and a good book to read.” “Everything would be better if….” “I prefer to be somewhere else.”
How often does your mind tell you those stories?! It always questions the situation and rather than be at peace it makes you crave all the time about something you don’t have at the moment. I struggle with that a lot too. And also as the title might suggest, I wouldn’t mind to be back in Bali…. But I am learning how to listen that voice in my mind and just observe what it wants to tell me. Actually it’s ridiculous instead of being happy exactly where we are – there is always something we dislike. Also in Bali I was dealing with that stupid voice from time to time, which was telling me things like “it’s too hot, so humid, I feel lonely, I don’t want to do this or that.”
I am learning to acknowledge that voice, let it be and then return to the NOW and enjoy the present moment. Because in the end it’s important to understand that the past and the future are only projections of the mind and only the PRESENT MOMENT is what we have and can fully experience. With that said, I am happy to look back at the beautiful journey in Bali but I am entirely happy with the NOW, writing my thesis, being at my parents’ house.
The lesson to take away from this: It’s good to dream but instead of dwelling in “if this” or “if that” just be content with what you have and enjoy the present moment. It’s all you have – the past is gone and the future is yet to come 🙂
But now let’s talk about Fashion and Sustainability…
Modern Correction eyeglasses? I‘ve been a eyeglass wearer since a small child as my eyesight was never the best. Even though with growing older I started wearing glasses only when I sit in front of the computer or spend the day at home. I noticed that it’s not the best choice for my well-being. Nowadays, it’s not a big challenge to find a stylish modern correction eyeglass frame anymore. Apart from super cool looking and wearing a great accessoire on your face I came along amazing locally produced and eco-friendly brands.
Framing sustainability and creativity is one of the core concepts of the innovative and aesthetical brand neubau eyewear. Their frames are made of natural OX, an environmentally friendly polymer. The intensive and vibrant green frames just stole my heart and I wanted to discover my inner Nerd again.
What do you think? Are you also an eyeglass wearer? Or do you prefer lenses?
