On my way home from work today I needed to stop and take my dog for a walk so stopped at Ashton Court Estate (an Estate of lovely big grounds) which is basically half way home. I wasn’t looking forward to it as I was wearing flip flops and it was raining plus I can’t find my coats in my piles of unopened boxes from when we moved house so I’d borrowed a little mac from my Mum! (Just to set the scene!)
But when I got there, although it was wet it wasn’t cold so I walked through the grass getting wet feet and took my hood down so I could feel the rain and tried to take it all in as a moment to cherish. Then a lady came past with her two dogs on roller skates (her, not the dogs!) and we had a brief chat. It just made me stop and think how lucky I am to be able to have these moments and even though all is not perfect in my life, the fact there are moments of happiness is something to be grateful for.
Cheesey I know but completely true and it’s a step in the right direction that I was even able to feel that way, a few weeks ago I would have probably trudged along complaining about the rain and the chore of having to walk the dog in flip flops!!
Been looking forward to hearing some positives all day too xxx
