I have a feeling that this post is going to be a little bit all over the place, but I am also a little bit all over the place so it’s totally fine.
I have been living for day light savings this week, mostly for the sunsets! And I just wanted to share why.
Because we sprung forward this month so many people were upset about losing an hour of sleep! (Honestly, I didn’t even notice the effect because the time change was on a Saturday.) And out of nowhere today, the thoughts just hit me of how I am so glad for the time change! For one, it’s still slightly dark when I wake up for work. For some people that is irritating “It shouldn’t be pitch black out when I leave for work or school!” but waking up when it’s still dark out makes me feel more productive, like I’m getting up before the birds and starting my day early (even though I am still waking up at the same time as before) and that’s just a super positive way to start the day!
Another reason, and the main reason, I am living for the time change is because it’s still light outside when I leave the gym!! Which means, I can watch the sunset every freakin day!!!! AND THAT’S AWESOME! I also love the sun staying up later because I don’t have to rush after work to get my run in before it gets too dark, which is always a plus!
And I don’t know, something about the sunset just gets me going. Makes me feel genuinely high on life. When I was walking out of the gym this evening watching the beginning stages of the sunset I just felt so peaceful. I couldn’t get the thought out of my head, “Life is so fucking beautiful and I am in love with every single part of it.” And that is incredible.
That thought led my mind to wonder about how damn EXCITED I am for my cruise next week! First of all, I’ll be on some beautiful beaches in Mexico which is exciting on its own because I LOVE LOVE LOVE the beach. But what I’m most excited about it is how I’ve been visualizing all the breath-taking sunrises and sunsets I’ll be able to witness while looking out over the vast ocean each day. I can already feel the happiness, positivity, gratitude, thankfulness, beauty, and love for life I know will be rushing through my veins every day I’m on vacation. And I am so excited because I need this vacation so badly and I know it is going to be so good for me. Just what I need and it’s going to be so rejuvenating. I can’t wait for the writing I will be able to do while on vacation and the post-vacation blog I will write afterwards!
I am just so excited for how this year is unfolding for me. I was talking to Tal the other day about how even though it’s only 3 months into the year I already know this is going to be the absolute best year of my life. Up until this point, 2014 was the best year of my life hands down, and having such a strong feeling that this year is going to blow 2014 out of the water is enough to bring me to tears. I honestly can’t express or put into words how thankful, grateful, and happy I am. Life is so damn good.
This week has been exhausting, mentally and emotionally. At work and in my personal life. And TO be able to lay in bed at (almost) the end of the week and still feel so blessed is just a reminder to myself that life is damn good. No matter what you’re going through or feeling, life is good.
I HOPE YOU ALL HAVE A BANGER WEEKEND AND A BANGER WEEK.
P.S. I’ve recently started incorporating “banger or banga” into my vocabulary which I am also living for.
