Notice the beauty of things

Take a moment to look at what’s around you. The wonders, the beauty of life. The colours and textures; the sensations and the sounds.

Look everywhere indoors and out. Look carefully. Look at the sky, the horizon and the land. There is always something wonderful, if you can see it, even the darkest moments may have something within them.


If things were simple

Some things aren’t so simple. Some things need to be read over and over again, requiring you to try and understand what it means exactly. Other times you really want to make something cool and interesting e.g. like DIY table or whatever (lol) and yet it is very complicated how to do so. Problem solving is an important skill and so is persistence…


Sometimes it is interesting to think about how different people think about the same thing differently. One example I learnt for geography at uni (which is quite an interesting example from the geo perspective so I will repeat it and add to it) was how someone could see a forest or woodland in different ways. It could be seen as a resource, or a place of biodiversity, or a place where you can go on walks or outdoor pursuits or a place of memories or somewhere isolated at night.

Perception of course varies more than that. As I mentioned previously on this blog language is one thing the affects perception e.g. how you see colours. But there are of course physical differences in people that will affect how somebody sees something, Synesthesia (wikipedia link) is one interesting occurrence in some people.
