The past seven weeks have been a whirlwind. I’ve been traveling and working non-stop. When I’m not working, I’m checking out new places or planning my next adventure. I’m not complaining. I love it. But I haven’t had a lot of time to write or even just chill. A day here and there, but for the most part it’s been go, go, go!
I decided to go through some of my photos and plan my next blog post since I have a few-hours-long shinkansen (Japanese bullet train) ride back to Tokyo. While scrolling through hundreds of photos, I found this one. I captured this in Korea a few weeks ago while exploring a market with some new friends. We stopped to buy some soju (a very delicious Korean liquor), and I saw this beautiful flowering tree.
I HAD to stop to admire it. The tiny brightly colored blooms made me smile. Maybe it was a combination of the fantastic weather (blue skies and sunshine), great company and vibrant atmosphere. But on this day, I definitely stopped to smell whatever these baby blossoms are and enjoy the simple things in life. I’d like to think that I do a good job of appreciating the little things, but finding this photo today reminded me that it’s something I need make sure I do as often as possible. Sometimes those are things that bring us the most joy. 💕
