It was a busy morning for me. I dropped my grandson to kindy at 7am, did a 40 minute workout and then visited my mother-in-law at her aged care facility. The choir were performing so it was a big deal and I’d promised to be there.
I came home and felt quite lazy so hubby kindly made me a coffee and I took time to walk out into the gorgeous winter sunshine and just enjoy sitting for a while.
Life can be hectic even when we are retired. Sometimes I wonder how I ever fitted full time work in and I think that is a common thought among retirees.
However, sometimes we just need to take a break from the world and enjoy some down time. Even 10 minutes sitting in the sunshine or your favourite chair and just clearing your mind can improve our health and wellness greatly.
I was sitting in the sunshine with the warmth of the sun’s rays and I was filled with happiness. I felt grateful to be alive, enjoying this simple yet wonderful moment.
I just sat and looked around the garden, the camellia’s are starting to bloom. A little angel was peeking through and even flowers which are probably weeds looked delicate.
I wandered to a neighbour’s house where a bush was blooming with gorgeous red flowers. All the while soaking up the rays of the sun and feeling mellow.
Sunshine can lift your mood immediately. The sun shining in a clear, blue winter’s sky was so soothing. I can understand why cats love to luxuriate in the sunshine and then have a good long stretch.
Do you take time to sit in the sunshine and just be?
Do you have a special place where you can sit and clear your mind?
Why not take some time out of today and enjoy the moment.
