I wake up at 7. Correction, I set the alarm for 7, wake up at 7:30. I turn on the radio, my feet walking to the beat of the bouncy tunes. Hair in messy tangles sticking out in all directions, I make my way to the kitchen. Breakfast: a grapefruit perfectly chilled in the fridge, granola poured generously on a heaping of Greek yoghurt. Food in hand, my happily dancing feet take me back to my room. On the radio, a song was playing. The first thing that caught my attention was the beautiful guitar playing, joyful and crisp. Then, a snippet of the lyrics caught my ear. An ordinary, grapefruit eating, messy-hair morning turned into something, well, quite wonderful.
"I welcome the sun
The clouds and rain
The wind that sweeps the sky clean and lets the sun shine again
This is the most magnificent life has ever been
Here is heaven and earth and the brilliant sky in-between
Blessed is this life and I'm gonna celebrate being alive
Blessed is this life and I'm gonna celebrate being alive."
Much love, Vivi
