How to gain perspective

Anything you want is life is achievable. Now I am not crazy but I promise you it is. It’s just about gaining some perspective and the secret to gaining perspective is walking amongst the giants and realises just how small you are. Take a walk in the forest against the trees or along a beach where the ocean spreads as far as the eye can see. You will see that all great things have to start somewhere. There is no right time to start, there is only excuses for why it isn’t that moment. You want a new job, make time to apply for some and spend time on your application. You want to lose weight, it’s just consciously putting one foot in front of the other for a while before it becomes a habit. Get out there in the world and live amongst reality not the vital form. My secret is simple. My Therapist: six inches tall, four legs, fluff ball and in need of a haircut and daily walks. Even when I feel like hell on earth, he has needs and out the day we go. Just get out of your head (and phone) for a while. Lose yourself in the beauty around you where there is no wifi or ringtones. The connection there is second to none and there is something to be found against the woods and rip tides: you. Start taking the scenic route in life and don’t let life tame you. Henry Thoreau “took a walk in the woods and came out taller than trees”. Anne frank wrote “go outside…amidst the simple beauty of nature…and know that as long as places like this exist, there will be comfort for every sorrow, whatever the circumstances may be.” So just get go and go. Don’t know where, remember it’s just one foot in front of the other. The rest will map itself. Left or right? Go with the pull of your heart. Let your adventure begin…find your own ikigai. #findingikigai

This is my story of finding my ikigai. Ikigai (生き甲斐, pronounced [ee-ki-ɡU]) is a Japanese concept meaning "a reason for being". According to the Japanese, everyone has a hidden ikigai. Finding it requires a deep and often lengthy search of self. Such a search is regarded as very important, since it is believed that discovery of one’s ikigai brings satisfaction and meaning to life.
