On a bright sunny afternoon, What would you like to do when you’re by yourself? Lather on some SPF and take a walk down the street? Go to a cafe and sit outside with an iced lemonade? Chill on your patio with a book and wave to neighbors passing-by? Put on your head gear and go cycling? Take your kids to the park and buy them ice cream? Plan a lunch outing with friends and spend the entire afternoon catching up on silly stories? Go shopping for floral summer dresses? If you’re by the beach, then nothing can be better than chilling at some shack with a cold Long Island Tea watching the calming ocean waves and enjoying the ocean breeze! Or would you pull the curtains down and enjoy a movie on Netflix with a pizza on your side? Whatever you wish to do, have fun and have a great weekend! Happy Sunday, happy summer days!
PS: I’m loving this weather, I like walking and listening to music while admiring the blue skies and green pastures. 🙂 I was listening to this song while walking today, hope you’ll enjoy it too.
Somebody told me – If you are going through a difficult phase in your life, Remember that you’re not alone. Nobody has it easy. Some days can feel like a burden Like there’s no way out. Sadness, tears, anger, frustration. Like life is unfair for no reason at all.
Then she told me to give it time. It’s also about giving things time, To run their course. For them to pass. So you can heal. Everything eventually gets better. It always does and you know that it’s true.
This isn’t the first time, You were expected to face a challenging circumstance. This isn’t the first time you had to brave. You have done this before, Then why the uncertainty now. Like all the other times, this will pass too. Wait for the morning For the sun to shine with new rays of hope. And just like that, Your day will seem a whole lot better than yesterday. She said with a smile.
Today, I will rise and stretch like a cat. Yawn real loud and open my mouth as wide as I can. Draw open the curtains and smile. Embrace the warmth of sunshine.
Today, I will not worry about the mistakes of yesterday. I will start the day by being kind to myself and the people around me. I will take time to work on a hobby that brings me joy. I will be thankful and show gratitude for what surrounds me.
Today, is going to be another day away from family and friends I will not crib or complain, I will tell myself to hold on to hope. As in my heart they are not far away.
I hit snooze again, Not once, not twice, bloody 14 times. Groggy as a drunken monkey, Slithering like a dazed slug. Is this still a dream? I sit down and wonder. Eyes droopy, head foggy. I feel like a zombie. Mum slaps my hand and stares at me. I growl at her, grumpily. This day isn’t going to go real well. No, don’t you tell me to go back to sleep again! I will make myself coffee, Turn down the lights, Listen to some jazz, Bask in this glorious grogginess, And work, alright?
How do we describe this feeling? This feeling of going unnoticed, In a world filled with billions of people. Trapped inside the houses with no where to go. This pandemic, This threat, This worry! People are panicking, People are worried, People are complaining, People are depressed.
“Are you listening to me? Are you watching me? I need attention, give it to me!”
We are craving to return to live our normal lives. Dreaming of walking freely outside. When? The only question that is at all times on our minds.
And, what do we do as we wait? We breathe. Till then we breathe! We take the longest deep breaths. To calm our unsettling and restless minds.
