Are you an early riser? a nature lover?

Do you make an effort to wake up early just to watch the sun rises?

When was the last time you let your eyes wander at the changing palette of the skies when the sun sets?

“Someday you will find the one who will watch every sunrise with you until the sunset of your life.”

Personally, I think that you don’t need to be a romantic or a poet to be able to appreciate the magic of watching the sunrise & sunsets. This is one of the most amazing things in our world that we can appreciate everyday, the best things is- It is  FREE!  Life gives us a wonderful slideshow of beautiful nature that is displayed for all of us to see.

“People are just as wonderful as sunsets if you let them be. When I look at a sunset, I don’t find myself saying, “Soften the orange a bit on the right hand corner.” I don’t try to control a sunset. I watch with awe as it unfolds.”

Changing colors of the Sky..Nature’s palette.

Many times that I felt like my eyes are filled with worries about life, I try to watch a sunset and suddenly my mood changes.  It’s a proven mood booster. Then I make it a habit to appreciate the sunrise every morning and gaze with a grateful heart at the sunset at the end of the day. I promise to myself that whenever possible, if I have a chance, then I strive to be an agile sun chaser. I should know where to find the sunrise and sunset times and note how the sky looks at those times, at least once. One of the things that I do whenever I am in a new place is to watch how the sun rises or catch a sunset. It’s the perfect souvenir I am taking in.Watching the sun sets relaxes me and it gives me enough inspiration, enough reason to be grateful to end a healthy day & look forward for another day. Living as an Expat allows me to see different horizons where in the sun creates a natural painting that no artist can ever replicate. If you would check out my camera roll, photos of sunrise and sunsets are abundant. It really become my most favorite subject for photography.

Nowadays that we live in a smartphone era, it is very hard to take away our eyes from our phone that we neglect the beauty that readily awaits for us to see. May your busyness leads you to right vistas, to lasting beauty of sunrise and sunset.

“If your eyes are blinded with your worries, you cannot see the beauty of the sunset.”

~Jiddu Krishnamurti

  1. You are completely right. There is something special about sunrises and sunsets. A few weekends ago I took a trip near a lake. It was supposed to be a very relaxing trip to get away from the city. Instead of sleeping in, to catch up on sleep, I chose to give up a couple hours of sleep in order to experience the sunrise over the lake. It was completely worth it. Thank you for your post!

  2. I love this post. Sunrises and Sunsets are points of reference for our souls. I see both while I am in the garden and always I have to stop and bask in the glowing light.Thank you for bringing this up.

  3. I am totally a sun riser. When we are in Bantayan, I wake up super early for a chance to catch the fishermen coming back and it is such a treat for the eyes and the soul. I love that so much, this silence, the incredible beauty of Mother Nature .. For some reasons, it energises me so much, and even if I usually wake up a couple of hours earlier than usual, I am always on such a better mood for the rest of the day 🙂 Beautiful post here (again!), thanks for sharing and have a beautiful week!

  4. This is so true, and I love to use nature and her unfolding beauty to relax my mind. It sweeps us away into something bigger than ourselves, and as you say we can’t and don’t need to control her😊💕

  7. Thank you. When I read your posts I feel kinship with you and I am amazed how we attracted each other with our writings.
    You know how a sun ray (if you gaze at it through your lashes) is composed of a myriad of rainbow fibers? So are we…Same light , different rainbow strands.
    It takes one to see one.

  8. Really? It’s amazing that you can describe me so well. I am indeed, that’s why the everlasting routine is definitely not my cup of tea (some is always good and reassuring though).
    Your comments about my post on Not making plans already struck me, when you said something about the body AND the mind needing to be still …I was wondering how could you know this is where my challenge lies ? 😉
