You know when you are just having one of “those” days and feel low in spirits? Well that was Monday of last week for me. Because I was not feeling physically great (thanks to a cold that persisted to stick around for way more time than it should), stopping some negative thoughts from spiralling out of control was a particularly harder task. As an attempt of relieving some tension and giving my mind some clarity, I decided to go to my usual strength training class at the gym after work. However, it did not really work. On my way home I kept on thinking on everything that was not going my way but…when I looked up to the sky, I was left in awe this cotton candy sunset:
I guess that this is living proof that “if we keep our HEAD DOWN, we will miss on LIFE’S GOODNESS”. #sothankful
I have spent the last week in the UK and it felt so good to be back there.
It was a beautiful and bright Sunday on the Kent seaside and, for that reason, my boyfriend and I decided to drive to the beach to watch the sun setting over the vast blue ocean.
It is no secret that Nature is fuel for the soul and I love the power that sunset gazing has over me. It always manages to bring me into the present moment and feel grateful for being alive. There is something so special about the way how the sun seems to melt and drip into the water; something so inexplicably unique about how it gently kisses the ocean good night (…) and it was as if life had stopped whilst we watched the live show in the sky. It was just me, my partner and the glorious spectacle of dancing colours we had in front of us – the true epitome of fleeting beauty. Nothing else seemed to exist or matter.
Isn’t it wonderful how Mother Nature is capable of truly enriching our lives if only we let it? If we force ourselves to stop and shift our focus to appreciating the surrounding natural beauty?
