Seeing The Beauty Around Us

On my home from work, having realised I had missed the bus  that I normally like to take in order for me to get home at the exact time I like to be home, I looked up in the skys and saw the sun setting. It had filled the sky with illumination. Fiercely bright yet beautiful. Oh mine it looked so beautiful I had to capture it. I felt so happy seeing the sun, that I forgot to be disappointed. 

Last week wasn't so when I faced a similar scenario. Trying to save as much of the 24 hours we have been given in a day in order to do something creative, or  indulge in a hobby can sometimes appear a task when the bulk of time is spent at work, and a good amount travelling to and from work. Therefore, for some of us, public transport users, missing a bus and having to wait about 20 to 30 minutes for the next one isn't exactly the most pleasant experience especially when we imagine what we could have been doing each waiting minute. 

The beauty of this sun gave me a different message. Perhaps if we stopped a little to see the beautiful nature  around us, nature also smiles back and we simply feel better.

That's how I felt today looking at the sun. It didn't matter anymore that I had to wait for another bus, what mattered was the smile I got from the sun.

If having a bad day think of one thing you are thankful for today, even the smallest thing might shift your mood for the better.
