oh you weather god, thank you.
today it was 2° celcious outside, the birds were singing and spring was in the air. i loved being outside and felt so happy.
me. the homebody. the girl who never whole heartedly wanted to go out for a (long) walk.
but something changed last week.
last thursday i went out for a walk with matilda, listened to an episode of conversations with sheri dew on the iphone, the sun was shining warmly on my face, matilda was falling asleep and i felt happy. content. the thought puzzle pieces in my head which had made me a bit restless and confused finally came all together and i shed a few tears. i was thankful and felt inspired.
i had never felt like that before being outside.
it seems as if i finally found a "happy place" outside of my comfort zone - my home. outside, literally.
today i went out to see if i could find it again and i did. i didn't cry, but the familiar feeling from last week showed up again and left me feeling happy and rejuvinated. my own little spa-treatment. for free from mother nature.
and i texted mikael how wonderful the weather was as i was listening to another episode of conversations.
we live in a fixer-upper with still so much to renovate, tasks never seem to end and the days going by too fast these days but i love where we live. i love our home, it is cozy, yet a bit unorganized, with two 70's style bathrooms. but i love and truly appreciate now that i can just get out and be surrounded by beautiful nature and calmness.
// try to go out every day for a walk, even if it is just for 15 minutes
// the next one is for another post ;)
and when we came home, our missionaries were there to carry firewood into our basement from our shed.
it was perfect.
