Oh lovely day!
This was what my morning looked like. Very cool outside and still very wet, but the sun is out! So happy. And so determined to find a little time for myself even on this busy day.
It’s busy out there, isn’t it? But I’m not the only one. Right?
I know you’re like me.
I know that there may be a full day ahead of work or school and chores and errands and gym, but there’s also this hope of being able to set aside a little time to sit in the sun and read. Maybe have a cup of tea.
So here’s what to do.
1. Take your book with you.
Take it with you to work, to school, or take it out of your bedroom and put it on a table in a lovely spot where ever you are.
2. Find your time. You know you have a lunch break, a break between classes, Now get yourself to a lovely, warm, sunny coffee shop, or go make that cup of tea and then sit down and stay for a while.
Try not to allow yourself to be distracted too much.
The world will still be there in an hour. The work, the chores, they probably won’t lessen any, but your heart will be lighter, sunnier, happier. Does this resonate as much with you as it does with me?
There, don’t you feel better?
