Hello beautiful human beings! Things are crazy currently with it being finals season. I swear theres not enough time in the day, but still hanging in there - not that I really have a choice... But on a more positive note, the weather has been AMAZING the past 5 days. Like true summer weather! The sun shining and the warm of the outdoors is the best form of motivation for exams! Yesterday, I went to the park and just did some of my studying in the warmth of the sun and it was wonderful beyond compare.
I think summer weather just brings happiness to people, which is why it also works as a motivator. If it was pouring outside, grey and miserable, all you would want to do is stay in bed and sleep all day - avoiding all possible responsibilities because it is simply just too depressing. BUT this weather, wow, I basically spring out of bed in the morning!
This morning I woke up bright and early to go on a nice long walk in park to start my day. There is nothing better than starting a day with a moving body and fresh air. Especially, when the rest of the day will be spent cooped up in meetings, class and studies. It was just so calm and peaceful, it was like the world was still sleeping soundly. Normally after I've biked over to the park i plug in my headphones and zone out the world, but I didn't today. Today I decided to just listen to the nature surrounding me. It was a much more calming and relaxing experience, it was just another moment of utter happiness. Listening to the birds, seeing little bunnies hopping around and simply being consumed by all the green. I definitely paid more attention to the little things on this mornings walk, which lead to an appreciation of this wonderful Earth and all it has to offer. I love mornings like these.
I hope you all have a happy, wonderful, sunshine filled day and remember, "smile to the world and the world will smile back".
