(appreciating the beauty in front of you)
Some people can write with their eyes shut. I cannot. I only write when my heart speaks like now so can I ask you something? This time last year, where were you and what were you doing? Close your eyes and turn back the hands of time.
Right! You were on vacation! Somewhere away from the UK! In a different country, enjoying the sun, sea and holding your favourite drink! Now wake up! Yes, you are here like most of us who realise that boarding a plane to go somewhere away from home can be daunting given the current climate. Some people are brave to do so and I admire that.
Going back to “staycation,” my family and friends went to Brighton few days ago just for a day. And guess what? We all had a fantastic time! The sheer thought of driving away from home really excited us! Being stuck at home for few months and not being able to go anywhere – is like being in prison and suddenly, you can see the outside world! No one is an island especially during pandemic. Eating fish and chips (group of 9 people) with a glass of vino, hearing the waves crashing on the beach, walking on the pier whilst eating ice-cream, had a magical effect on me. I looked at my companions and they all seemed to be having a great time too! We were just so happy to be out and about! You do not have to go abroad! You can have a marvellous time right here on our doorstep! We are lucky to be alive! Count your blessings and open your eyes and appreciate the beauty that is within your grasp! I suppose that is what staycation is all about.
