Some days I wake up and it’s just so gray and sad outside and I feel completely devoid of energy and inspiration. Recently I had one of those days and was accompanying Daryl to a doctor’s appointment and feeling quite down. When we came out of the doctor’s office the sun had suddenly come out and it was still early in the day, so I decided to cast my negative feelings aside and grab my camera and go on a 1-hour train trip to Frederikssund, a cozy little town with a small beach.
At first, I was super negative cause it was so cold and I wasn’t wearing warm enough clothes, but I’d brought snacks and juice, so I managed to cozy up on the train and make some cute IG stories. Once I arrived I was still feeling moody, I had to pee and I just didn’t feel good, but then a funny thing happened.
I was taking pictures of frost getting quite excited when all of a sudden I noticed that I’d dropped my phone. I was all anxious and desperate and ran around looking in the sand when a nice older man saw me and asked what was wrong. When I told him about my phone, he kindly offered to call it up. Thankfully the sound was on, which is unusual. We had to cover quite a stretch, but he was patient and kept calling up my phone until finally, he heard it in a patch of grass. I was SO relieved and suddenly I noticed that I was also happy. I’m not used to people being nice and helpful like this, so it really made me feel warm and toasty inside. I gave him a hug and a chocolate bar and we had a good laugh before we went our separate ways.
After that, it was like I was on a little bit of a high and all the beauty around me started to actually seep in. It’s funny how experiencing kindness can really change the way you feel and see things. The rest of the day was lovely and so pretty, but I’ll get back to that in my next post from this lovely day. For now, enjoy my photos from a day of frost, nature and the kindness of strangers.
