Why is it so hard to live in the now? So hard to appreciate everyday and make the most of it. To realise that we are actually pretty lucky every day, and should really be thankful if we think about it.
I am great at being thankful and mindful when I am on holiday! It doesn’t even have to be much of a holiday, but a night or two away somewhere. Then I make the most of every minute and enjoy whatever it is I do.
I wish I could transfer some of this to my everyday life. Is it possible?
I’m not sure.
For my birthday weekend we stayed one night in a small cottage by the beach in the north of Sjælland, Denmark. We had less than 24 hours at this place, but still it felt like a holiday. We enjoyed it so much, and really just appreciated every little bit.
Shoulders down, breathing still, no stressful thinking, no worrying about anything or anyone. No fears for the future, or money-problems. Smiles, laughter, talking, closeness, togetherness and kindness.
A cosy atmosphere always helps me relax 🙂 And this cabin was just that.. cosy. Nice lighting, some candles and nice company. It didn’t hurt that my boyfriend made me my favoritt; filet steak with sweet potato fries, broccoli and bearnaise sauce. Yummmm!
Before dinner we witnessed a gorgeous sunset on the beach. We even brought a bottle of wine with us, and it was no less than perfect.
