It is ok
Even if your days look like endless walks
through the forests of your mind.
There is still beauty –
in the walking,
in the going on,
in the moving forward,
in the seeking for something you’re not quite sure you’re going to find.
There is still beauty in all of that.
When no bikes are available for cycling, you make the best of the outdoors anyway, by imagining it’s your favourite season on an island in the tropics.
On a morning I was free, it struck me that it had just rained heavily. I yolo-ed and reorganised my plans for the day so that I could visit the Botanic Gardens.
I wasn’t disappointed.
The smell of wet grass, the not-too-warm-yet sunlight on my skin… the excitement of taking photos under such friendly lighting… Everything came together to make it a beautiful morning experience.
The sun has been quite cooperative with my schedule recently.
I am thankful that it has been easier to be thankful for each new day.
It’s been a blessing in disguise, really.
I mean, you KNOW exercise is good for you. But knowing and doing are very different things.
And until you’re actually pushed by (desperate) circumstances to get down to it, you might never do it.
On a day when I wasn’t feeling too good – A walk at sunset proved to be good medicine.
Another attempt to reengage the senses. I was told walking in the Botanic Gardens after the rain is a magical experience. Unfortunately we have just been having a lot of dry weather so…
It’s just a walk. Without the after-rain smells.
Still lovely though.
