Wonderful Wednesday #3 | 2017

Wonderful Wednesday #3 | 2017

I wish I could start this Wonderful Wednesday off in the jolliest of ways but I’m struggling. Not only am I off work, on bed rest by doctors orders, (this bloody flu!!) , reading article after article about the current events going on in the world almost makes me feel like I shouldn’t write about the happy things. However, I think now more than ever we need to be mindful of the little things that bring us joy. If not now, when?

Let’s get on with the wonderful, oh and Happy February!

.: Bare feet on clean sheets. There is something so very comforting about your little bare tootsies escaping slipper jail to be met with the softest, cleanest sheets you ever did feel. Or maybe it’s just me?!

.: Teaching Conference. Before I fell ill again, I attended a conference for teaching on Friday and Saturday at the University of Barcelona and it was so worth while! There were some very inspirational speakers who really got me thinking. I was hit by an abundance of blog post ideas over the duration of the conference.

.: Happy photos on IG. I’ve seen some beautifully bright, Spring like photos popping up all over the place on instagram and it has really brightened my day.

.: Good News. A couple of my friends have had great news recently which is resulting in brand new chapters in their lives. I love hearing people’s happy news. It really puts a smile on my face.

.: UB buildings and gardens. I adore architecture and although I really don’t know much about it, I can fully appreciate it for all it’s beauty.

.: A slice of orange in hot water. It’s warming and tasty. It’s pretty much my go to drink right now.

.: Love Trumps Hate. Through all of the chaos, the news flashes, the heartbreaking news that is flooding our senses right now be it through the tv, laptop, your phone, newspapers etc. The media is also covering something incredible. Something inspiring and motivating. Something that could and most likely will change the future. People standing up for what they believe in, voicing their opinions and saying that they are not okay with the changes going on in the world right now. And I’m okay with that. I’m more than okay with that. These people are making others, like myself, realise that you can and should stand up for your beliefs. Every cloud has a silver lining, and although this is one of the uggliest, scariest storm clouds we may ever seen during our time on this earth, the silver lining is a beautiful, sparkling one full of hope. And sometimes, hope is all you need.

    It is always a good time when you have a spur of inspiration for blog posts! I’m hoping February will kick start my blog brain after all it’s resting and relaxing in January.

    I love that photo of the little fountain, just a little slice of the Spring to come!

    Happy Thursday, have a great rest of the week!

    I hope you ditch the flu soon, that’s no fun AT ALL. And of course you’re absolutely right, now more than ever we need to focus on the great bits of life. There is so much awfulness out there that finding the joy is a huge thing.
    It’s SO lovely when your favourite people have great news, that’s heartwarming and wonderful. Wishing you a brilliant rest of the week lovely one.
