Day 3 of Project 2015

An interesting morning for both of us as we both awoke to rather vivid dreams. Le dreaming about crowds and queues and buses heading in wrong directions. David dreaming about villains chasing him into water and then him fighting back.

We are by no means experts in dream interpretation but could our dreams be a sign that we need to start shaking any negativity away from us?

For Le – is there an element of moving on and feeling confused about where she is going? There is a lot of chaos and people around that are hindering what she needs to do?!

For David – is he trying to run away from something toxic in his life? He needs to face and fight rather than run?

How it would be wonderful to be able to know what our dreams mean? One of our goals also for this year is to try and practice lucid dreaming – all as part of our spiritual discovery.

Summary of January 3

Newbies

We woke up earlier than usual and went for a 7km walk this morning. We felt so refreshed and energised the entire day.

Brighter/Different Perspective

As the sun started to shine it’s fiery rays down, we began to get weary but came across this Indigenous Sculpture: “The Serpent”. The way we also see this, is an arrow up. That there is always an “up” to every down 🙂 No matter what we dream, as long as our conscious stays happy and uplifted, we can continue achieving anything.

Mahatma Gandhi: a few quotes

Today we drove past Ariana Park in Geneva and saw a statue of Mahatma Gandhi.

Mahatma

Here are some of his rather memorable quotes that will help keep us on track with the project!

Hope you find them as enlightening and enriching as we do:

“A man is but the product of his thoughts what he thinks, he becomes.”

“There is more to life than simply increasing its speed.”

“I will not let anyone walk through my mind with their dirty feet.”

“Your beliefs become your thoughts, 
Your thoughts become your words, 
Your words become your actions, 
Your actions become your habits, 
Your habits become your values, 
Your values become your destiny.”

So remember to slow down and enjoy your day.

It is only as good or as great as you make it to be!

 

Introducing Our Year-Long Project

This will also act as our “About” page but we felt this was also a fitting first post to introduce our idea. We officially won’t be starting the daily posting until 2015 but in the meantime, we might post and share uplifting or insightful things we find. 

——-

How often do we really stop, think and talk to ourselves about what was good about each day?

We are currently in Switzerland and we were having dinner one night when we contemplated how we can really change the way we look at things especially after returning home from our Europe trip. That we should reinvent each day and not let them be “just another day”. We so easily let days roll into one and lose ourselves with routine.

Often we get to the end of another year and realise how it has gotten away yet again. We want to be sure that we don’t let our time pass us by, we are choosing to be in the moment and truly be present, not only in body but also in mind.  

This is our project:

Post every day for the year 2015, seeing and sharing only the “brighter” perspective  of something (anything) that happened that day! It’s about focusing on the good and less on the not-so-good. Not letting the good be overshadowed by those things that “ruined” our day. Not any more!!

And at the end, we will look back and see how much of the year we actually remembered because we stopped to think and talk! Depending on the success and our commitment, it may be a project we can continue. 

Life isn’t just about the milestones and big events – it’s about every day! So here is how Le and David “SEES THE DAY” for what it really is.

Here are the simple rules:

1) We post every day about our day from a brighter perspective – there are no limits on what might be posted. 

2) Embrace and capture all those little goodies that sometimes pass us by – there are times when we may get a compliment from a work colleague and we just thank them and that’s the end of it. These are the moments we want to remember rather than the fact that we had a terrible phone call 10 minutes later that “ruined” our day.
