Being in the sun, I felt it chase away the clouds that seemed to be inhabiting my heart and head. The sunbeams bore into me and chased away those shadows of doubt – those negative thoughts that had been plaguing me for days – those fears that had me spending more time in the shadows than in the sun.
As I was outside in the yard pulling weeds, I had this overwhelming urge to lay naked in the sun – let it permeate my whole being to burn away that fog that remained. I followed my urges, stripped off my clothes, and laid naked in the hammock soaking in the sun.
A smile found its way to my face for the first time in a week. I had the urge to go play with friends. I had urge to be social. I had urge to laugh and have fun. A total change from where I was hours before.
It’s amazing what a little sun can do for one’s spirits.
I missed a spot when applying the sunscreen. Guess I could have used an extra set of hands.
