As always, I'm more than excited to share with you how my roses smelled last week :)
New to Lovely Little Things? Read up on what Smell the Roses is!
Last week's task was to make a playlist of your 5 favorite songs and listen to it while you watch the sunrise or the sunset. These aren't my favorite songs, but just songs I wanted to listen to that night ;)
|1. How Great Thou Art by Ascend the Hill|
2. Paradise by Coldplay
3. Underneath the Sycamore by Death Cab for Cutie
4. Heartbeat by The Fray
5. A Thousand Years by Christina Perri
I chose to watch the sunset, because I am by no means a morning person. I did this on Wednesday night & can I just tell you guys that it was SO needed. I have been super stressed with work and school this semester (67 more days of classes)! I am so glad that I put everything on hold for a little while to bask in the beauty that God created. I always feel closest to God when I'm outside. It's like he painted the sunset just for me. His bigness & glory are so evident, and I am overwhelmed by His love. It's an indescribable feeling, really. How mind blowing is it that we all watch the same sun rise/set even though we live in different places all over the world? Incredible.
I really hope you guys enjoyed taking a little time out of your week to watch the sunrise or the sunset (or both if you were feeling ambitious ;)) Link up below with a picture of how your sunrise/set looked and the list of songs you listened to :)
This week's task:
Try something new.
This may sound kinda generic, but I'm gonna be honest...I need it. With midterms coming up and work getting into busy season I have been feeling suffocated by my day to day responsibilities. I don't want life to lose its zest just because I feel like I have to do the same thing day in and day out. So in order to shake things up, I want us all to try something new.
It can be something simple like ordering a new drink at Starbucks, or something more extreme like taking that painting class that you've been wanting to take. Maybe you're not much of a DIY-er so you want to craft something up. Or maybe you have horrible road rage (like me) so you decide to let people out in traffic and NOT get frustrated when they don't do the thank you wave.
The possibilities are endless...I challenge you to do whatever you feel like you need to do with this task. Get out of your comfort zone & make sure you live in the moment while you're doing whatever you choose to do.
I saw this on Pinterest on Saturday and then I saw Liz post it on Sunday. Love it!
Grab a button and link up with a post that has a picture of the sun rise or the sunset that you watched and the list of 5 songs that you listened to :) Remember, the entire post doesn't have to be dedicated to Smell the Roses - as long as it's mentioned that works! Next Monday we'll link up with a post that mentions the new things that we tried.
I'm also linking up with Heather at Finding Beauty in the Ordinary
