So, it’s taken me a long time to see the beauty in the world around me, I’ve taken so much for granted during my life so far. I mean like, living 10 minutes away from a beach for nearly 5 years and only, now, taking the time to go and sit down there and appreciate it. Sitting there, watching the sun set over Arran, wow, it’s actually beautiful when you take the time to sit and just take it in. Just let all the problems in your head melt away, just cherish that moment. It’s the small (or big) things like this that we, mostly the younger generation, seem to forget about. We’ve been brought up thinking the world revolves around money and being famous. It takes over. I for one have lived most of my life, stressing over money, always wanting that bit more, needing fashionable clothes because that’s what I thought life was.
I’d like to think though, over the last 6 months I’ve had a whole lot of shit going on and I’ve had a chance to really sit down and realise what is important in my life, to start appreciating the littler things in life like a sunset, a blue sky, crashing waves.
Like I know money is and always will be a big thing in life, but my life isn’t going to revolve around it.
Just appreciate the little things, it helps.
