Last weekend, I had the opportunity of visiting Brussels for the first time. I was amazed by the architectural marvel across the city. The city is famous for the Art Nouveau architecture and also the home place of the famous architects Victor Horta and Paul Hanker. That is why we get to see stunning examples of Art Nouveau architecture across the city.
The city is not only the capital of Belgium but also the headquarter of the European Union. This city is a busy place with many tourists visiting, lots of eateries, restaurants, bars and shopping malls.
I would like to share some of the pics that I have clicked while touring this magnificent city.
Manneken Pis, a bronze statue of a boy peeing in a basin. There are two more peeing statues in Brussels. The theme behind these statues is the free-spirited, down to earth, surreal spirit of the Bruxellois!
To do something new, creative, different, the dynamic is scary, fearful and risk bearing. Not many of us like it. In our daily grind, we have responsibilities, financial liabilities and goals to meet. Who likes to risk the liabilities and do something different and add to more stress in the daily routine? This happens not only at work, but also doing something creative, or following a passion.
Being in a comfort zone makes you complacent, close-minded and vulnerable to change. You live life just because you are alive. But life isn’t about just being alive, you are here to celebrate, enjoy and feel happy for your existence in this life journey. At the end of the day, we all agree life is too short. Each one of us is responsible for the kind of life we lead.
So the phrase typically comes ” step outside your comfort zone “ Whether you become successful or failure isn’t important. It’s the satisfaction, enjoyment, confidence and the self-growth you gained through the process that gives you so much joy and happiness that truly matters. So let’s do it
1 Start taking a task or project which you thought you cannot make it. Start working on it. 2 Start doing something creative. Take a music, art, photography, dance class which you would love to do but embarrass to try out. 3 Bring changes in your routine exercise regime. Try something different which you think you cannot do. 4 Choose a fear ( stage fear, giving speech, height) something you have, confronts it. 5 Reach out to someone whom you wanted too but hesitated or join a like-minded group of your interest.
