One Apple A Day is my morning writing practice. It started as an experiment a few years ago, and it is now my daily anchoring practice. Fifteen minutes each morning that help me recenter and ground me.
On this page, you can read a new post every weekday.
Energy flows where attention goes.
You probably read this quote in many books and articles.
If you ever rode a motorbike, you undoubtedly experienced how the bike follows your gaze. If you look at the obstacle, you will hit it.
If you watch a professional motorsport race, you will notice how the riders and drivers are always looking where they want to go and not where they are going.
So, where are you putting your attention?
More and more I see on social media people complaining against obscure big enemies or crying about big humanity problems about which there is nothing they can do.
As a result, their energy goes consumed by rage or wasted in words without actions.
What would happen if every person put all the attention in something maybe smaller but doable? That energy would create an impact, albeit small, that will make a difference.
And you know, even the biggest ocean is made of drops of water.
This is fascinating.
I picked a BeTheChange card this morning.
One that says “Being Creative by BEING who you are”.
This card is an invitation to explore my bigger me.
It challenges me to think about when I’m most of who I am.
I started writing about the quest for who we are.
But words weren’t flowing.
I wrote and rewrote each sentence.
Until I realised that I wasn’t me.
Sometimes, the search for something can take us away for that same thing that we are looking for.
Like in this case.
In my desire to find the real me I was walking away from it.
My bigger who is not in the answer.
It lives and expresses itself in the question.
