In keeping with my efforts to live more 'in the now' - to stop and take time to appreciate - to see, to acknowledge and just look - I got to thinking about what are the best parts of my day, when I find it a little easier to stop and take notice.
One of my favourite times of the day is when I walk out of my office at the end of the day and stroll down Blue's Point Road to catch the ferry home. I love the onslaught of fresh air as I walk through the door after sitting in an air-conditioned monolithic building all day. The feel of the breeze, the sun on my back, the smell of frangipani and the visual feast of the lovely terrace houses, the beautiful gardens and the expectation of the iconic view of Sydney Harbour that awaits me at the end of my walk.
I look forward to this 20 minute trek and it never ceases to raise my spirits. Then its the ride home on the ferry. Each day I am amazed at how lucky I am to be able to travel to and from walk on the ferry.
There are lots of other things that qualify for the 'best part of my day' category such as the first sip of coffee, waking up to the beautiful sunrise I see from my bedroom window and of course curling up in my comfy bed at night.
I have so much to be thankful for. I just need to learn to be more aware of the small things that make up lots of best parts of my day. What is the best part of your day?
This week's challenge from the documented life project was to add a doodle to our planner page - here is the result of my playing.....
Doodled over gelli-print tip ins - added a couple of stickers and washi tape...looking forward to next week's challenge?
