a not-s0-ordinary walk

It was a big pressure on my part, especially on the early scene wherein I was very conscious about the world around me. Every step was a challenge along with my itchiness to get into my destination. It felt like the sci-fi movie in which I was on a slow motion showground while the world’s revolving so fast around me. It was pretty hard, indeed a struggle. People were gazing as if they were seeing a crank or a person who have gone psycho. That was the picture and the feeling of walking at the speed of five seconds per step as a minimum benchmark in a rush hour streets of the metro.

While everyone’s walking so fast, it seemed that I was walking in a park, slowly and calmly. And there’s no demand of time, no pressure of getting late, no looking at my wrist watch, just a bare relaxation under my own steam.



Yes folks, you’ve read it right. It’s one of my crankiness trips last week. I actually got the idea of this modus operandi in one of my books, hahaha. But there’s a rationale behind this trip up, it’s breaking up the monotony. Yep, we usually have the routine that sometimes made us clouded about the real journey in life. In other aspects, we were so engaged with the details that we usually overlooked the broad path ahead of us. So this simple exercise will at least break up your routine and let you try something new. This activity depends on your flavor; If you’re used to the fast-phase life, wherein I presumed most us all fall unto this, then you betta try this one on the other hand, If you’re laidback then try the opposite. It’s simple as the nursery game of playing the opposite. And by doing that, you’d realize something new, something out of your ordinary schedule but in the end the decision is still yours. Just try something new, something that you’re not used to…

though routines lead to consistency and reliability, they usually confine us inside the box..once in a while we all do need a breather..something new and fresh..

nice thought!

may nagsasabi na dahan dahan lang daw sa paglakad tungo sa sinasabi nating journey of life... wag daw madaliin... kasi u might take the wrong path daw.

i agree. from time to time, we should break the monotony! from big things to small things, we should try something different, something new.
