Today Oh Wonder gave me a surge of inspiration. Here’s my list of three things make life a little better as told through this duo’s beautiful compositions.
1. Keep moving forward no matter what
Things may get tough, relationships may break down, we may be stretched to our limits, but don’t let that slow you down. Keep on driving towards the unknown, and don’t look back for too long because you’ll never get anywhere. As the age-old saying goes “shit happens”. Don’t let that shit bring you down, stay on a forward trajectory.
2. Be there for the people who matter
Life is made up of the people who you love. Take care of them. Be there for them. Tell them you love them. Let them know how important they are to your life, because they are. Whatever happens in this life, from tragedies to triumphs, you’re going to need people. Nothing beats the human touch, both physical and emotional. After you finish reading this, do me a favor and hug someone you haven’t hugged in a while, because that small sign of affection can turn someone’s day around for the better and spreading good vibes is good for the soul.
3. Reconnect with nature
One of my favorite poets, Khalil Gibran, said it best:
“And forget not that the earth delights to feel your bare feet and the winds long to play with your hair”
Living without nature is living in black-and-white. Turn up the color in your life. Lay down on the grass, feel the leaves, take in the scent of flowers, stare at the clouds as your imagination runs wild, and breathe in the fresh air of this beautiful little blue planet.
