Hello there! How are you doing this fine Sunday?
I’ve been in my own world lately, but I’m popping back on here to share with you my Bitesize Wonders of the week. Last week’s edition of Bitesize Wonders was a special one. Instead of presenting you with my usual list of highlights during the week, I wrote about a really special friend on their birthday and the importance that friendship holds (Read the post here). Perhaps, laying all my emotions on the page like that may be cheesy in some ways, but I believe it’s essential to express to the people we love just how much we do. Let this be your reminder to let someone know how much they mean to you today.
This week was very much a quiet one for me. My Bitesize Wonders were down to earth and contained – bitesize in nature. Nonetheless, I’ll share them with you.
The whole point of this series is to share the big joys as well as the little ones continuously and intentionally. The standout moments as well as the mundane. My goal is to catch moments of pure magic and trap them on a page. I’m finding there’s always – always – a reason to be grateful. These are the things making me even an ounce of happy – my beloved Bitesize Wonders.
- A walk to clear my mind. A Bitesize Wonder indeed.
- Moments of silence that don’t beg to be filled up by noise or incessant chatter. When silence is comfortable, you’re in good company.
- The extra hour and a half in bed on a day off. Kindle in hand as I gave in to the desire to devour the intriguing pages of Blood Orange. Harriet Tyce’s book has definitely kept my interest. So far, it’s a trip I go on with curious eyes.
- Jeans that fit just right. Sometimes looking good makes you feel good.
- The late afternoon on a bank holiday spent on the sofa playing Tekken on my PS4. It had been a while, but my fingers on the controller felt familiar to the touch again like a hobby already rehearsed a couple of hundred times.
Blowing off steam with high kicks and aggressive punches against virtual characters ready to take on each challenge. I feel no remorse as I take them down. The words ‘YOU WIN’ displayed on the screen make the victory taste sweeter. Losing my winning streak makes me scream at the screen. I’m not accepting defeat. Just one more time.
- Sushi rolls that find their way to your table. Bitesize Wonders can come in bitesize servings too.
- No One Dies From Love by Tove Lo. On repeat all week.
- The travel bucket list had me reminiscing and mentally planning my next big adventure. Have you been somewhere nice lately?
- Perfectly cooked noodles on a grey day. A craving satisfied.
- The end of the day finds me again. Jeans off. Joggers on. Comfort makes me feel even better.
