After watching the move Dead Poets Society for the first time recently, and absolutely loving it, I decided to write a series of 5 posts (so come back and check every Saturday!) about the life lessons we can gather from the movie. And while we’re at it, I would love to mention the very first one that we find.
Now, I am pretty sure you hear these same things every day. But then again, when you’re going to work every day, how is it possible to change something every day? Do something new and escape the habit of living day to day?
It could be something big, like planning a trip to a country you’ve never been to before. It could be getting married or having a big party. But then there are also smaller things you could do. I am going to share with you the things I am going to try and do this week. And I hope you will get inspired to do something new yourself!
Monday – Listen to music I don’t listen to. A new artist, a new group. Who knows? I might like it.
Tuesday – Talk to someone I usually don’t talk to. Striking up conversations has never been my strong point seeing as I am as shy as it gets. This one will be a toughie J
Wednesday – Go somewhere I have never been before. I fully intend to do all my homework and cycle out and keep going, until I lose myself and end up somewhere new. And as I come back home, I am going to admire the area I am in.
Thursday – Dabble at photography. It’s something that looks cool to do, something I will probably be rubbish at. But I am going to go outside and dabble with my camera seize the day, trying it out!
Saturday – Eat something new. I will try and crack open my recipe book to make something that I’ve yet to taste.
Sunday – Write a postcard to a good friend who lives abroad, and send it. Sometimes it’s good to get a reminder that you haven’t been forgotten, and someone put in a bit of an effort for you.
I may not be Buddhist, but Buddha does say this pretty well. We always think we have time, but what if we don't?
