Maui, United States
I’m in a bit of a silly mood today.
Although I dearly love my country and I am so proud to be Canadian I think I was born in the wrong place. This year I really thought spending winter in Toronto would be food for me but after 5 days on Maui I can see that the cold weather meant my spirit was in hibernation.
With less than a week of sun I feel like I am thriving. I have more energy, feel more relaxed and overall I am happier.
I feel younger.
Not that I’m old. I am happy to be 35 but the sun seems to shed things that were starting to weigh me down. It definitely has something to do with Maui. I haven’t reached my halfway point on this trip and I am already contemplating how I can return for a month next winter. I was really happy in Toronto but I think I need to focus on staying there in the warmer months and keep traveling in the colder months, at least January through April.
And I know this may be the cheesiest song in the history of summertime pop, but I still love summertime girl.
Welcome summer. I missed you.
