This short and sweet film reminds us of who we are at the core. The person we were before being made to believe that growing up meant giving up your creativity and your authenticity; the person we were before losing touch with nature and our true Self. We can get so caught up with the business of life that we don’t even realize how much self-awareness we have lost. For some of us living in the corporate world, or doing any job we are not satisfied with, we might not even realize we are living out our days on auto-pilot. Choices are presented to us and we make decisions automatically, robotically even, without putting much thought into the act — without putting much of ourselves into the choosing.
“What you do today is important because you are exchanging a day of your life for it.”– unknown
So how do you find out who you really are and what you really want out of life? Give yourself a day to be completely present. Evaluate how you feel when you wake up, when you go to work, when you are at work, how you communicate with others, etc. What are you really feeling? If you feel complacent or disengaged it might be time to reexamine your current position at work (and in life) so that you are sure you are getting the most out of what you are given, which sometimes might just go right over your head.
The beautiful thing about life is that it is ever-changing; it moves with or without us and we have a choice about whether to live actively or passively — to engage in everything life has to offer or to fall into the background of someone else’s life.
So what do you choose?
