Happy Easter Weekend to all of you!
It was a gorgeous and warm day in LA, Dima and I went for brunch and simply enjoyed the atmosphere and the surroundings.
Today I decided to picture the flowers that I found on our way throughout the day. People always say that you have to go and smell the flowers and look at all the beauty around you and that it is a big part of being a positive and happy person.
About 10 years ago, when I was just a couple of years into my first business, I got a little overwhelmed and felt that the pressure of all of it is getting down on me. I have been told that I needed to go and smell flowers and that I need to create a positive mindset.
OK, so I did, I took my dog, Coco, went for a walk and smelled all the flowers I could find. And guess what…NOTHING happened…when I came back I felt the same way. No changes at all!!!
I was close to just giving up on it, and to stay in my misery and wallow in my feelings of the world coming down on me.
But the idea about the flowers stayed in my mind, so despite that nothing changed so far, I continued my little walks and smelled flowers and looked at everything beautiful I could find… and guess what, in a little while I started to feel better. My brain learned to focus on a different reality, it learned to see the beautiful things around me and it translated quickly into life.
Not only did I feel better, obstacles and setbacks, as disappointing as they sometimes are, were not so hard to overcome anymore. It was like looking past them and just jumping over them rather than getting stuck with them and dwell on everything that was coming my way.
I wanted to share this experience with you, maybe it will stay with you as well…
so for now,
let’s go and smell the flowers and find beauty around us
