Sometimes all you need is a little sunshine, a good tune on the radio, or the answer to a question you’ve been wondering about for a while. A little ray of hope, a signal of some kind; confirmation that whatever you have been doing, or whatever it is that you feel like you know (even if you can’t explain it), is right. An extra little reason to believe in yourself, and in your intuition.

These feelings might come from anywhere – a snippet of conversation, a walk in the fresh air or finally getting something done that you have been putting off for a long time. Sometimes your day can be turned around just by being reminded that how you look at things is the only way you can change how you feel about them.

And maybe the question you’ve been asking, you actually knew the answer to all along.

If you can, take the chance to soak up a little sunshine; it might just put a little spring in your step and help you know that you’re on the right track.
