I find the sunshine a little magical. How it can instantly brighten someone’s day and alter their disposition. Something about those warm rays on your skin. They radiate through you, make you feel wrapped in positivity and joy. A big hug from mother nature. You feel alive. At least I do. Anything can happen in the sunshine. Anything can happen in the rain too but people aren’t open to it. They want to run to their next building instead of being cried on. Tears of cold and misery. In the sun there’s no better place to be than outside. Yeah, you can get sunburnt and sweaty but these are mere side effects. We’re willing to live with them if it gets us the cloudless blue sky. We flock to the shop for ice creams, strawberries, ciders. We drag our lives to our gardens, to the parks, the seaside. Because we know here the sunshine is fleeting. She won’t stay long. So we don’t waste a minute. When I wake up and I’m being blinded by the rays seeping through my blinds I know the day will be great. You don’t want to sit inside. You’re restless. So we go to rooftop bars, we go hiking, we go on road trips to nowhere. Just being outside revitalises you. Recharges you. The sunshine makes me feel like I can do anything. I want to be coated in it always. It inspires me to get off the couch and actually live my life.
And today it’s a glorious day outside. So why are you sat here reading this? Go and enjoy it!
