So we dropped the kids off at school and popped down to my favourite place to eat, the Sea Lane cafe. I don't think I have ever mentioned that I live by the sea, but I do. In fact, I often forget why we moved down here and then suddenly remember that it was to be by the sea.
We sat in the cafe, watching the tide slowly come in, the sea really quite calm and a feeling of tranquility came over me. It reminded me that what ever goes on in our lives, the tides will keep on turning and the birds will keep on singing, so learn to enjoy the finer details of life. So just for today, I shall lead by example and ask you to kindly follow my lead.
Take a step back and look at the bigger picture. Leave your problems behind and sit awhile and watch the world go by. The world will go on turning, the sun will keep on rising and setting. Take a moment to enjoy what the world has to offer.
Spend time with your loved ones and really talk to them. Remember what made you love them in the first place.
Smile often and people will smile with you. I find smiling to be infectious and has often got me out of very tricky situations.
Enjoy what each day has got to offer, because their is always happiness there, you just have to open you eyes and look for it.
Enjoy good food and good company.
Don't just exist, live for the day. Or put a better way, carpe diem - seize the day ( it's popular transalation, though the general definition of carpe is pick, pluck, pluck off and gather. Prefer the popular version myself!)
So if you have woken up in a bad mood, or your problems are getting the better of you, or you just don't feel happy. Look out the window, enjoy the natural wonders and get up and do something different from the norm. Go out somewhere that doesn't normally fit into your routine and enjoy it. Let the world lift your spirits and make you feel a whole lot better.
Go on, stop reading this and do it now.
Let me know what makes your day today?
Have a gorgeous day!
