"Keep your face to the sunshine and you cannot see the shadow." Helen Keller

AHHhhhhhhh sunshine. Is here any better way to get through a stressful day than going outside and lifting your face to feel the sunshine? I joke with people that I am solar-powered, but the truth of it is I can feel my metaphoric batteries recharging.

Just like watching my cell phone recharge, that little battery getting full one pulse at a time. Sunshine does this for me. I life my face and feel the warmth and just feel the sadness leave my body, the negativity replaced with joy and the fear replaced with hope.

Winter time is tough for me. This year May was tough for me (too many uninterrupted days of rain). I need sunshine...externally and internally. I raise my face to the outside sunshine and allow it to refill me. I also give myself internal sunshine with positive energy and with that, I fill my mind with the blessings and gratitude and it gives the shadows no power over me at all. SUNSHINE!
