Sunshine is just good for the soul isn’t it? When I wake up on a sunny day I feel more motivated, more energized, more alive. I feel like I could conquer the world.
Did I love sunshine this much when I lived in Virginia? I’ve always been a sun worshiper but I’m sure when the dog days of summer arrived and it was almost too hot to go outside I appreciated the sun less. But here in England, bright warm sunny days are more of a novelty and I think that’s why I appreciate the sunshine so much more these days. One of my friends even noted that I now have a totally English approach to sunshine, instantly breaking out the shorts and sundresses even though it might not be quite warm enough. You just want to be that optimistic. You’re so desperate to shake off the gloomy winter and enjoy the spring that even the slightest hint of warmth has you breaking out the summer clothes.
So I’m taking every opportunity to soak in the sun’s rays while it’s around. To refresh, renew, rejuvenate the soul, rebuild the karma. Just feeling the warm rays upon my face. AHHHHHH! It’s like it takes years off (even though it’s adding all the fine lines and wrinkles). It relieves all the built up stress. Gives me an inner peace and calm.
I feel like Edward in Twilight all glowing and sparkly when the sun strikes my skin.
