Nothing makes me happier than some simple things in life…
Smell of books.Yes.That’s me!
Sound of pouring tea.Everyday please 🙂
British sense of humour.It’s hilarious!
Forest walks.The longer,the better.
My husband cheeky smile.Rather charming.
…and mornings.Of course.I freaking looooove the smell of possibility in the morning!
A beginning of a new day.A new blank page of our life.And an opportunity to fill it with all the things that make us feel alive. There is something utterly exciting and motivating in a thought of having a whole,fresh day ahead of us to learn and experience something new or to simply do what make us truly happy.
I think that how we start our morning can power our strengths and prepare us to face challenges we might encounter later in a day…and the secret doesn’t lie in what we do just after we wake up but in what we don’t….
There is something truly magical about early mornings (Note I haven’t got any kids yet so my enthusiasm might change one day!;)) Those precious,serene moments that happen just before the noise of the outside world leaks into our day, are something we should all learn to celebrate……in a slowly way.
And what is the better way to celebrate your morning if not with a great breakfast?This delicious bowl of porridge is exactly what you need to brighten your day!It has been my life-saver during those cold and grey mornings.I’m sure you will fall in love with it too.
