Old cartoons from the USSR are truly amazing and full of ancient wisdom. What an awesome excuse for me to spend 15-20 minutes at the end of the day with my kids and what a constant source of inspiration.
– But if we don't see the first lilies of the valley we will be late for the entire spring!
– Again, we will be late to the station!
– But if we don't hear the first nightingales, we will be late for the entire summer!
– But we will be late!
– But if don't see this sunrise, we might be late for the entire life!!!
Someone told me that in Canada spring has no smell, not the same like in Ukraine. BS, as far as I am concerned, it smells, it smells of flowers and trees, excitement and awakening, sun warmed wood, first thunderstorm, freshly cut grass – first time in the season! Did you notice that when you cut the grass for the first time it always smells different? Thrilling, unearthy and earthy smell of spring – it is right here.
But we don't notice it. We are too busy. We are so damn important! Doing stuffffff. Shopping – for the stuffff that we don't need, watching TV, so that the guy from the commercial that we don't care about tells us to buy more stufffff that we don't need. Facebooking, where our "friends by accident" that we don't care about tell us about stufffff that we don't need that they bought from the guy from the TV commercial that we don't care about.
We are making money… Yeah, right, don't kid yourself, money is making us – the more we have, he more we need and there is no limit, no stop, no satisfaction. Until we are dead and missed all the lilies, the nightingales, springs, summers and the entire life.
Now… guess what! I am not a guy from a TV commercial, but I will tell you, there is an easy fix! When tomorrow you get out of your front door and the sun is shining and birds are singing and you dont feel like an old rusted bumster – DO a Cartwheel! Yeah! Across your front lawn! Or hop on your right foot to your swinging your arms and whistling like crazy.
Yes, I know, you wanted to do it for a long time but were always concerned what the neighbor can think of you. Well, screw the neighbor, just do it! What is the worst that can happen? The neighbor will decide you lost it and will move out. Or the neighbor will decide you are totally cool and will join you in your cartwheels.
Oh, and one more thing, don't forget to stop and smell the lily of the valley!
