The Proverb says: “Earth is the queen of beds”
“Earth is the queen of beds.” This Namibian proverb beautifully captures the significance of the earth in our lives. Without the earth, you would have nowhere to sleep, grow our food, or build our homes. You depend on the earth’s soil, water, and air to sustain us. However, too often you take these gifts for granted and fail to treat the earth with respect.
1. Appreciate the little things in life
No matter how big or small, every act of kindness deserves recognition. It could be something as small as your partner making you coffee in the morning or your colleague holding the door open for you. Maybe you had a tough day; someone went out of their way to make you smile. Whatever it is, could you take a moment to appreciate it? These small gestures can make a difference and brighten up someone’s day.
2. Everything happens for a reason
It can be easy to get wrapped up in your own life and forget that there is so much going on in the world. Sometimes bad things happen, but it is essential to remember that everything happens for a reason. Even if you don’t understand why something happened, there is always a greater purpose. Trust that everything will work out in the end and have faith that things will happen when they are supposed to happen.
3. Be grateful for what you have
Society is constantly consumed by materialism. It can be easy to get caught up in wanting more and more things and forgetting to be grateful for what you already have. Take a step back and think about the things you are fortunate enough to have in your life. From your health to your family and friends, there are many things to be thankful for. Don’t take these things for granted – cherish them every day.
Feeling stressed or overwhelmed? Remember these three things: appreciate the little things in life, everything happens for a reason, and be grateful for what you have. These words of wisdom from Namibia will help you keep perspective and find beauty in life’s simplest moments. So slow down, take a deep breath, and enjoy earth – the queen of beds!
