Becoming The Change: The Beauty Of Life

“Life is a beautiful thing. Pack a bag, make a playlist. Watch the world. Don’t speak. Just listen.”

-John Mayer

Ever have the desire to just get away or escape from the daily grind of work, home or just life in general? Are you in need of just time to recharge yourself? I’m sure the answer to both questions is a resounding yes. Today’s quote by musician John Mayer is what we need most. Life needs to be celebrated for its beauty. What better way then to get out there and experience it first hand? Not with any preconceived notions or an agenda but rather to just be present and in the moment.

Mayer says to pack a bag. What you put in it is up to you: a good book, magazine, journal, blanket, food, etc. You name it, you do it. It’s your bag anyway and better yet, your life. Now to making that playlist Mayer recommends we watch the world, not to speak but rather listen. So this playlist is not one of music but rather things to do, things to experience. It might even be the different venues you visit for the day: the park, a museum, the zoo. Your playlist is yours and yours alone.

I think it’s more important to embrace these kind of days because they will be good for the soul. Better yet, why not schedule more of these on your calendar? Maybe once or twice a month. It doesn’t have to be the whole day, maybe half or just a few hours. Whatever it takes to rejuvenate the heart, mindy, body and soul. Life is beautiful so go out and experience what makes it so.

What does this quote mean to you and how can you apply today’s message towards becoming more socially aware?
