In times of the quarantine it’s a tad more difficult to stay cheerful and keep up the smile on one’s face. I guess I might consider myself “lucky” since we are not in a forced lockdown here in Poland, and being outside can give me a reason to feel better about the whole situation. But no matter if you have to stay at home all day and all night or if you can leave your place for an hour to do necessary shopping, we all little bits of positivity. Be it a perfume, a book, TV series, you name it. If you’re still into reading perfume blogs (I know, it’s so passee now) you surely know Undina. On her blog she has a series of posts titled “Small Things that Brighten Life” in which she simply talks about things and situations that became memorable by having a story to them and that made her day better.
I noticed that she hasn’t added any new post to that series for over a year now and hopefully that doesn’t mean Undina is unhappy ever since. I decided to grab the batton and tell you about something that brightened my life recently. Last weekend in Poland it was a long weekend due to holiday on 1st of May (not that it matters in Coronavirus times) and despite the weather being moody (there were occasional showers) I decided to go out for a bike ride, my first one this spring. Equipped with a protective face mask and my phone with Endomondo switched on to track distance and callories I went for a trip. I had to hide from the rain on the way but it was compensated by the view of a flourishing colza field with a green grass plain next to it. Nature reminded me of its beauty.
