Sunday morning blog time, my friends. Thank you for sitting here with me on this fine long weekend. I’m hyped up on some coffee with a splash of almond milk and cinnamon sprinkles. Life is dandy.
You know about this weeks sensation of “Yanny” vs “Laurel?”
It’s really made me think.
Some people would hear “Yanny” and some people would hear “Laurel.” In fact, I was in the same room as someone who heard Laurel while I heard Yanny.
There are scientific facts about the frequency and the treble and bass of it all, but it started to make me think about how we all experience life at different frequencies.
Some people may go through life and feel like the world is against them. Some people go through life and feel as though the world is cheering for them.
It’s all about your perception.
What I’ve been awaking to is my awareness of my own thoughts and feelings and experiences. The more I become aware that life has fleeting moments and feelings, the less weight and importance I put on them. Sometimes we can feel as though it’s the end of the world and then the next hour we realize that it passes and we are back to being more level.
We perceive a lot from our belief systems from environment and happenstance and upbringing. And everybody has had a different path than our own.
So, life is happening as it is and it’s our perception that experiences it.
Yes, there are very good things and very bad things that happen in our everyday lives but a lot of it has to do with our process of perceiving.
It’s not to say that the big stuff should just be flowed through quickly—there are moments to grieve and to rejoice, absolutely. What I am saying, though, is sometimes we may PERCEIVE something as bad but in all reality, it’s working toward our greater good. (Like that one last squat set at the gym 😉)
Don’t take life so seriously, my friends. It’s going to fly by and my wish for you all as you are into your 90’s and are reflecting on your past, that you experienced a myriad and rich and full adventure. That you let moments affect you and flow through you. That you never carried the weight of the world on your shoulders.
That is my wish for your life.
Lindsay, Laurel, and Yanny
