The Eyes of the Tourist

One of the secrets for a happy existence, full of moments of awe and gratitude, is to approach our daily life as tourists and look at things, every single thing, even the most ordinary ones, as if we have never seen them before.

When we go to new sites we pay more attention, we observe more carefully, and this approach allows us see things that even the local residents don’t see anymore.

Familiarity and repetition can make even the most beautiful things invisible.

“Life is not measured by the breaths we take to get us through the day, but by the moments that take our breath away.”
