Like, I said to a colleague the other day while coming back from an amazing meal, sometimes we are so busy living in London that we forget to look at it.
She agreed. We discussed how we can probably describe the road to work (and by road I actually mean the road) and not the people that we (don’t)see or the beautiful buildings that we again( don’t )see.
So that day after work, I stepped out of my office and looked. And saw. And realised what an amazingly beautiful city London really is.
I had never really consciously noted the beautiful architecture of the building bang opposite to office.
I had never paused to admire the understated but immense beauty of St Paul’s Cathedral which I walk past each day to work.
I had never noticed how trees had she their leaves and how pretty they looked decked up for Christmas. Who had put up the blue lights? And more importantly, when?
I had never noticed the little fountain. How pretty that looked!
I had not noticed how beautifully fresh the cold wind that I hid my face from was.
I had not noticed how with approaching christmas everyone was looking happier.
I had not noticed so many many things.
This is life. This ordinary day that has gone by is life. One day has gone past you. It was the day you could have done so much, seen so many things, laughed, joked, clapped, danced…it is gone. A small part of life as you know and (hopefully) love is gone. Just imagine how precious it was.
Sometimes, we are so busy living life that we forget to see. And admire. And appreciate.
I have realised that it is time to change that about me! And I am convinced I will J
