La vita è bella
Life is beautiful.
It’s true! With the first snowfall this morning, I was excited but also caught myself dreading winter which is probably the wrong attitude because when you think about it, our little, free-standing earth really is amazing. The land we live on bears us all the food needed to survive, warmth in the summer months and frozen lakes to skate on in the winter months. In fall, we swoon over the colours of the trees that replenish our oxygen supply, and in the spring, we enjoy seeing plants come to life after a deep sleep.
Having such a huge impact on how the earth behaves means that we, as humans have to behave ourselves, yea? Go for hikes, plant some food, swim in an ocean, ski a few slopes, you know, whatever tickles your fancy. There is always something beautiful around, even if it doesn’t feel like it. I wish I had some awe-inspiring recipe to add to this post but I don’t. It’s just what’s on my mind. Life is amazing if we want it to be.
