Mel Collie | How To Feel Lighter
When was the last time you felt light?
I don’t mean lighter as in weight, so don’t go jumping on the scales…they are for dieters and we all know restriction leads to your body going completely in the other direction..
I actually mean lighter in your life
When was that?
When did you last feel bubbly inside, like those Vitamin tablets that dissolve in a glass of water , bubbles fizzing away, when did you last do something that left you feel like that, all effervescent
inside , interested, curious,excited.
What were or are those little patches of light or sparkle?
What was the last thing you were curious about, that you wondered about.
It could be such a small thing, its almost not even worth bothering about, in fact you probably ignore it altogether.
I have one right now
I have a curiosity about macro photography. Everyone I follow on Twitter has been doing grand landscapes..but some are doing different stuff, I’m fascinated by ICM (Intentional Camera Movement) and Multiple Exposures, shots that makes you think and you remember, not photos that tell you what is there already with pretty colours and stuff and you forget a second later…Im curious about macro shots, small stuff, detail, microscopic photography, I have a patch of light about it, a sparkle or interest. I spent hours researching it yesterday afternoon..its sparked my curiosity
Now what not to do is to tell yourself its silly, its nothing grand and wont win you the lottery or make you ££££, because thats a sure fire way too kill ideas before they have even had a chance, its a sur fire way to kill any passion..
But , what if you just to followed it
See where it lead you..
You have no clue why you feel these little patches of light
But they just feel good
It feels right
If you don’t follow it, if you don’t listen to it, then you may just be depriving the world a glimpse of the human being that is you. Even if it touches one person.
Even if that person is just you
If you were not afraid of anything, nothing, not afraid of other peoples judgements or of your own (and that can be huge!) then what would you do for a living?
What excites you, what grabs your curiosity…what do you wonder about?
It my just be those little sparks of light that are you, become meaningful, become your passion..which could just change your happiness , wellness and even your life, without you even trying to steer the ship
You are following your sparks of light.
