(This post is two days late)
Since the start of my university studies last year, I have actually grown to love early mornings. Especially this Sunday. After waking up and watching a cool documentary about the volcanoes and natural disasters of the Pacific Ocean’s infamous “Ring of Fire”, I went out for a morning walk. Things were rather quiet in Pontypridd, and in the usual fashion I decided to have a little walk around the local park. I eventually came across and decided to sit down besides the River Taff for a while.
At that moment, things were bliss. No one else was around, no sound of engines or ‘urbanness’ to be heard. Only the sound of a few birds nearby. All the problems that were in my head seemed to have faded. I took a few photos of the surroundings, and admittedly a selfie :P. But for the most part, I decided to switch off my phone and engage the peace I found. It was delightful. I think I roughly sat there for between 30 to 45 minutes before I resumed my walk. But it seemed to improve the entire day for me, leaving a more happy impact on my day.
Little things like this is what I look for in life. It was not a big deal, nor did it last long. But the impact it made on my day is something that will stick with me for a while! I plan to revisit the area soon, maybe staying a little longer with a packed meal or something.
