Brace yourself for a long winded caption/a little thought journal for your Wednesday enjoyment (or annoyment. TBD) ✨💥 Okay so I took a lovely evening walk around this gorgeous park that ends up winding by the ocean. I usually like to listen to podcasts while I walk to catch up on the latest wellness trends, nutrition topics, or a good sermon. Tonight, instead, I just listened to some tunes and let my mind wander. So here are four of my crazy mind wanderings, if you so desire.
1) An intense smell of basil & garlic oozing from a house I passed fueled a deep desire to host a HUGE Italian feast complete with homemade pesto & pasta sauce, hand rolled noodles, and crispy GF garlic bread. Anyone wanna join?! There will be loud Italian music, great wine, & probably more wine 🍷
2) Smiles are NOT overrated, but are sadly undervalued. People are more likely to look away or look down when eye contact is made, yet a simple smile has such great potential to make someone’s day. Smile more ✨
3) I spend too much time looking down, and not enough time looking UP and enjoying the beautiful scenery. I started looking up more and noticing how massive the banyans were growing in the park and the shapes of the cloud puffs ☁️ I like cloud puffs... 4) Being in a big park where lots of tourists gather, you see ALL different kinds of people. All shapes. All sizes. And seeing the diverse melting pot of people, I had such an appreciation for how amazingly beautiful people are. Being YOU and unique and individual is so much more beautiful than blending in or conforming. Ive always been SO hard on myself, but learning to love who I am AS I am makes me beautiful too. It is what makes us all beautiful.
5) Just for fun. I live in the most incredible place ever. (A thought that is constantly running through my mind). Anyways, if you made it through, bless your soul. My mind is a crazy jumbled place I tell ya, which you may not be able to see from this moody picture, but I have many different faces (most of them NOT serious) 😜 But now it’s your turn! Tell me your favorite random thought of YOUR day 🙌🏽
