I have always wondered what is it like to be able to freeze time. Would the world ever be the same? Would there be things that people would change? Or can time change people?
Every second is ticking away; precious seconds that you are not getting back. But what made all these worth while? Everyone have their own answer and I’m sure most of us wouldn’t have any much regrets on how it is spent. But have you ever wondered what it feels like to stop and take a better look at the things around you. Maybe you can see something different or even view things from a different perspective.
In a everyday hectic life of normal Singaporeans, we don’t often have the luxury to stop our feet and take a few seconds to look around us. Everyone is forever rushing for time be it working, studying, dating, picking things up or even the simplest of eating a meal can sometime be rushed. Even with all the surrounding greenery, things go unappreciated in the city of Singapore.
They say a picture paints a thousand words and maybe that’s why I fell in love with photography in the first place. The stories that they paint and every emotion, message and content all in one picture itself. And most of the time, it is through pictures that people start to realise the beauty of it. I am ashamed to say but I too fell victim to such action; rushing and stopped appreciating the little things around.
These few weeks were hectic and I wasn’t given much time to properly rest my body. Through all the walking, running, working and studying, I realised that I stopped looking around me. My life was all circulated between work and home like most working adults. But today, I stopped my ever moving feet and took a look around me. From trees to flowers, buildings to houses and even kids running around, I have lost the part of me that knows how to stop and appreciate the things around. Most of us are victim of such thing.
So why don’t we? Make it a point to stop your feet once in a while and take a good long look at the greenery or things that you can appreciate because things don’t last. They might be gone tommorow and all we had to do was to just pay more attention to it.
Beauty is eternal and comes from within. People just have to stop and look closely into it. Sometimes, we might even be surprise at what we see.
