I’m trying to have some quiet time for myself every morning around 15 minutes. Or you can call it, I’m practising to meditate.
I started to realise that every time I began my day with even just brief quiet time, I felt I can pass that day with peace.
My current activities are shifting from job hunting to working preparation. Getting the employment permit done, looking for working shoes, reporting to my country embassy here, opening bank account, and many other administrative works (that excludes the shopping though haha :P)
It is quite often I pushed myself too hard, to get lots of things done within one day. It’s like making a to-do list for myself, what am I suppose to do from morning till evening. Name it, I have to exercise, cook, clean the house, refresh my ASP skill, do paperwork…
And I notice that, when my mind was listing what is the next task to accomplish, I am ignoring people around me or what are happenings around me. For instance, when I bumped to someone whom may need some helps, I will take some time to pause, and realise – quite often make a detour – to help them.
I feel that I’m not living in the present time. It’s like I’m living in my own world. As long as I have something to do, feels like I don’t really care about others.
I’m aware too that I can’t solve or help everyone’s problems, however, I feel that I’m obliged since I’m living in the society.
I often realise this during my quiet time 🙂
And, as I’m still constant learner, I’ll try my best to be more in the present moment as well as learning and practising meditation.
Or, maybe do you have other opinion? 🙂
