Sunshine energises me, makes me happy

We're roughly four weeks into winter and the truth is that cold, grey, rainy days depress me. We've been experiencing winter weather for a lot longer and it saps my energy and provides little incentive to get out and do anything.

Today the sun is shining and there's not a cloud in the sky. It's windy and is still jeans and jumpers sort of temperatures but I feel like I can climb mountains and leap buildings today. It also helps that it's a Saturday of course. Hope you have a great day wherever you are in the world today and below are three things I found this week to share. I'm thinking that Six Word Saturday has become my sharing day!

Share #1 (thank you to my mum for sending me this, it's definitely my line of thinking)
May today there be peace within.
May you trust that you are exactly where you are meant to be.
May you not forget the infinite possibilities that are born of faith in yourself and others.
May you use the gifts that you have received, and pass on the love that has been given to you.
May you be content with yourself just the way you are.

Let this knowledge settle into your bones, and allow your soul the freedom to sing, dance, praise and love. It is there for each and every one of us.

An old man once said, "There comes a time in your life, when you walk away from all the drama and people who create it. You surround yourself with people who make you laugh. Forget the bad, and focus on the good. Love the people who treat you right. Life is too short to be anything but happy. Falling down is a part of life, getting back up is living.

Found this 'happy card' below on an awesome website last night called Good Morning Nubia. The comment on the website says start your day with a smile. You simply must go and check it out, there is a new card posted every day and there's heaps of different ones, with all different subjects and pictures.

I'm off to make homemade chicken noodle soup and homemade apple pie because I feel exceptionally inspired today. Have a great weekend.
Cheers, Fi

  1. Sunshine energises me too - I can get so much more done if it's a sunny day!

  2. It's amazing how the spirits lift when the sun comes out. Enjoy!

  3. oooh chicken soup and apple pie, what a perfect way to enjoy a wintery day. It is summer here in London, cold and rainy- what summer?

  4. Love your energy today! Thanks for sharing it with such grace.


  5. Wow, too much good stuff today. Thanks for sharing! The Good Morning Nubia site looks fantastic.

    Cold, wet days get to me, too. Where I live we have about 300 days of sunshine per year, so I really can't complain. But, I do. LOL I'm glad the sunshine is inspiring you. I hope you have a great dinner. Soup and pie sound delicious!

  6. Vitamin D always a good thing. Here in Pac NW the sun only recently started to shine so I know exactly how you feel. Hope you get out and enjoy it while you can.

  7. Isn't it amazing how many of us at 6wS are writing about sunshine today?

  8. I like your Six Words, Fi. Happy 6WS!
    If possible to average our weather I would trade SOME of ours with you. We will be in the higher 90°F's.
    Thank you for sharing your buddies' thoughts. That is a neat idea.

  9. I LOVE winter...come live where I do and it's in the middle of summer... :) Hope you have many more sunny days though. (Found your blog from Six Word Saturday)

  10. We could do with a little sunshine up here in the north,too!
    Thanks for stopping by the eggs

  11. What a lovely, uplifting blog post! The thoughts you shared are wonderful and I will definitely check out that website too. I wish you a beautiful day in the nice weather. Here it is summer and of course much too hot. I am staying in until evening!

  12. SAD is a bugger. Luckily we've had more sunshine than normal (so far) this winter and I haven't been too bad. It's like I'm two different people...the everyready-bunny in summer and a bear in need of hibernation in winter. I try to listen to my body (10 hours sleep last night!!!) but it's not always that easy with all the things that really do need to be done.
    Great post. Love the postcard.

  13. Im a winter, rainy grey days kinda girl but a great 6WS! Have a good weekend.

  14. share #2 works for me!!
    and keep me some apple pie, please...

  15. Me too! I love being outside.

  16. I love the sunshine too! Congratulations on the new grandbaby!! Thanks for stopping by my blog and leaving a comment!
