When was the last time you appreciated the rain? When was the last time you appreciated the clouds, covering you from the sun on a hot day? When was the last time you appreciated the sun, shining down on you, bringing you warmth on a chilly day?
When was the last time you appreciated nature?
Don’t get me wrong, the air conditioner is an incredible invention. The heaters, the coolers and everything in between, they all have their own place. Being comfortable is great but it makes you soft. It makes you dependent. It detaches you from the real.
There are wonders out there, and all one must do is look. Not just see, but really look. Pay attention to the details, to the sunrise, how the birds fly around in the sky, the shapes that the clouds make.
Don’t spend all your time in your hotel. Don’t forget about the city you are in. Go for a run. Go for a walk. Just stroll, but go without any distraction. Look, feel, get back into the world before you start feeling like it’s all a blur.
