Be with your breath
A minimal, calm, healthy and happy life
Be with your breath
After a solid 6 months of cutting down on the unnecessaries, such as going outs, i took my sister to China town in London. My sister does not live in the UK and visiting China town is her necessity, so here i am.
It is such a shock to me, i feel like i have just felt from another planet.
All the shops are busy and crowded, you need to queue to get into Shoryu, a Japanese ramen restaurant in China town. It took about 40 minute wait in the cold. Then you got in, the seating set up was small and narrow because there were too many people. The experience was not that pleasant because i felt like everything has been rushed and no calmness or enjoyment has been fully experienced. However the ramen was delicious, there is no point to complain any further.
A bakery shop had such a long queue, and i remembered that cash is preferred, so i took out the £10 note to pay for some cakes, just to be told that the old £10 is not used anymore. It was very embarrassing because the queue was long and i was there with the old £10 note.
I felt proud of myself at the same time because that was just to prove that i have not been slashing cash for a decent period already.
The whole day walking around China town to see thousands of people passing by. It is definitely not a place for me anymore. I would prefer a calm and quiet place where i can be calm and fully be myself rather than stressing out in a buzzing place.
People can say anything about you
Don’t be anything just to please the crowd
Be yourself and kind
Be comfortable under your own skin
Be you and that’s when you are fabulous
Just celebrating the real you every day and be happy
It is the only one life we have
We must make the most of our lives
I watched Bohemian Rhapsody today, it was so good and it reminded me that I should make the most of the life i have
Work hard and be true to yourself
Follow your heart, your guts and you will find your success
No matter how different you are among the crowd
Your differences make you unique and make your success only yours
No one can try to be you or steal your success
No matter how long the road is, keep going and believing in yourself
It is precious to have trusted friends by your side
They are like family
They are always there for you when you need them
They can count on you
You can count on them
They are making your life better and happier
They are there to treasure and cherish
Be open, make friends for life
No matter what people say to you
They don’t know everything about you
They speak from their perspective which is different to your situation and perspective
Don’t let people’s thought and opinion affect what you do and what you believe in
Trust your instincts
Trust your guts
Love being yourself and being who you are
No one will know you better than yourself
It has been a long day
But i am grateful for all the work that have been done today
I know that i will have a good night sleep
And today has not been wasted
I am looking forward to tomorrow
To unfold all the opportunities
To enjoy life a little bit more
And live a simple and happy life
And you must write it down
It is a rainy and cloudy day
There is no sunshine
I attended a children concert
The queue in the rain was well worth it
The concert was a huge success
All the young and happy faces
The dance, the 🎵 , the atmosphere
The happiness and hope filled the air
The future is facing me, happy and smiley and promising
Such an amazing work of art
Its such a beautiful thing
I realised that the more active we can be, the healthier we will become and the calmer our mind will be.
Normally after a busy day at work , coming home i only wanted to eat, lie down or lounge on the sofa, mainly being inactive. I didn’t do myself any favour, i keep my head busy with all the thought and stir my mind up even more.
So I decided to overcome my laziness and do something, start with baking for beginner. It is such a therapy for the mind, and doing wonder for keeping the body in shape
