Yesterday we were sitting on a rock below Lion’s Head, overlooking a view of Twelve Apostles on the left, Atlantic Ocean on the right and lights of Camps Bay and Clifton in front of us. This view is simply breathtaking and I will most likely spend sunset after another sitting here on a rock and staring the sun melting to the ocean.
We had agreed to meet up here with A for sunset (19.54) as they were coming straight from a surf. Well, we were both too late, they even more leaving me there alone on a cliff. But there was no way I could be mad for a surfer who wanted to catch one last good wave.
Sitting there on a huge rock, watching the waves hit the beach on the spot he had just surfed, we realised something. We are living our dream now. Every day I step out of the door, I can't help but smiling when I realise where I am. Cape Town is breathtaking and it offers so much to explore. I am every day grateful of the freedom I have right now, and on the other hand that I have someone special to share my everyday life with. And though life feels especially amazing right now, I'm not worried of its impermanency. This period is very special time of my life, but I believe life will only get better. Its a matter of mindset.
I realised this yet again the next morning while doing a vinyasa class. Chelsey encouraged me to think what I value the most in life. It is people and experiences that make life worth living, not possessions. I believe not only for me but for everyone. For me this means gratitude towards the people I share my life here with, but also knowing that most of my loved ones and friends are in Europe. And though South Africa is stunning and inspiring, so is many other places in this world, including my home city. I recommend doing this yoga class in yogaglo.com (called What Do You Value Most?), you might just feel very inspired and grateful after.
