I love interesting ceilings and light fixtures. Strange I know. Most people might not think to look up when they are out somewhere. Fine dining, a pub, a coffee shop or outdoors. There is beauty above and it is often missed. Try it sometime. You might be pleasantly surprised.
In fact there is beauty everywhere around us if only we take the time to Stop, Pause and Look. In this hectic world we live in we are continuously in a hurry. In a hurry to get to the next meeting. In a hurry to get to our child's sports game. In a hurry to meet that deadline. In a hurry to go and relax.
There is something wrong with this and change is coming. There are many movements happening. Now. As you read. Another movement is about to start. You can be part of that. The Stop, Pause and Look Movement. Or the Look Up Movement. See the Beauty Movement. Stop the #Metoo Movement. It is up to you. You can do this.
I am so pleased that so much has been written about Millennials and how they are helping push the Work and Life Balance Movement forward. Funny, I've been part of the generation who has been helping push this forward as well for years! In more subtle ways. Many of us want the same things. Meaningful Work. Meaningful Play. Meaningful Life. The blending of work and life is not always easy; it takes some Rebels, some Game Changers, some H*Raisers and some Love Champs to make it happen. You can be part of this no matter what generation you belong to.
I hope to start a Movement soon. Not quite there yet. Yet somehow I believe that it is just around the corner. Or perhaps is somewhere above me. That idea that will be sparked as I enjoy a beautiful light fixture or colourful ceiling or soft-flowing clouds. In the meantime, until that happens, I am going to explore the beauty around me and the knowledge and wisdom that so many others provide.
