A couple of weeks ago, I left my house with no idea where I was heading. I needed to clear my head, so I started running. Yeah running – it’s this new thing I’ve started to do that involves putting one foot in front of the other with speed! I ended up in this pretty little spot, sat down on the grass to catch my breath, and watched the sun begin to set. The result of what I was feeling ended up being transcribed into facebook post later that evening, which I thought I’d share with you below:
Isn’t it funny how we spend so much of our energy chasing a feeling we once had, in a place we once were, in a moment we once found ourselves in?
Sometimes that feeling we are so eagerly & earnestly trying to recreate can be found right in front of us, but we’re just too blinded by our past experiences & high expectations to notice.
Life is serendipitous.
Happiness is transitory.
Life moves quickly. It is fleeting and constantly offers new & exciting opportunities, but we are only receptive to them if we live in the now. We cannot move forward by remodelling our future on the past, however delightful our memories of these feelings, places & moments lost may be.
There’s nowhere I would rather be in this moment in time than right where I am, and I am grateful for the events that have lead me to my present. Remember that chapters open & close, the sequel is never quite as good as the original, and everything happens for a reason.
And that’s what I learned while watching the sun set this evening ✨
What is it with sunsets that makes me get so philosophical?
On a slightly unrelated note – Santorini June 2015 – take me back!!
