Driving on my way to work in the morning I listened to Anjali Kumar’s Ted Talk My failed mission to find God and what I found instead – and whether you’re a spiritual person or not it is worth a listen, to say the least. I was sitting there encapsulated by her words with a tear in my eye, but a good tear, one that feels almost contently grounding. Now, you are probably thinking ‘well what did she find instead!?’ And, to be honest, it is not the most enlightening thing in the world, but it is a beautiful reminder we are all human. Her uplifting story follows a path of numerous (and somewhat very quirky) spiritual pilgrimages that lead to one simple, but profound, realisation: what binds us together is far stronger than what separates us, and our differences are not insurmountable. She identifies the top three things that pretty much every human being yearns for – no matter what religion you adhere to, or what ethnicity you are, or what cereal you eat in the morning.
We all value 1) health, 2) happiness and 3) love. Seems obvious, right?
Time. It is a timely reminder of something that can get in the way of these three, pinnacle phenomenon Anjali talks about. It can leave one feeling like they are racing from one thing to the next, putting off going to the doctors or catching up with that friend or slotting in that gym session, only to feel like they didn’t even get all they needed to do done it that one day. So, why does the important slip and the ‘other stuff’ just overflow into the next day? It all comes back to that magic word ‘time’.
So, please, if you are feeling like this and just need a little breath and an ‘aaahhh’, ‘it’s done’ feeling when you walk home in the evening, so you can actually address those three, simple (but oh so necessary) human desires, give us a holla! We’re literally only a phone call or an online booking away. Or just pull a sickie and have a me day!
