I’m sure that all of us have a place to go when we’re feeling down, upset or just want some peace and quiet. Mine is The Green Sun.
Located next to the highway from Riga to Ventspils in a village called Strazde (in Latvia), The Green Sun is a wooden sculpture placed on a hilltop. It is called The Green Sun because when you’re driving by you can only see the green forest through it.
I like to hike up there or go on a small bike ride up the hill to enjoy the beautiful view of the village where I spent most of my childhood.
I always feel calm when I’m up there. Sometimes I meditate, read a book, sketch or enjoy the sun that’s shining on my face.
Even though I don’t go there as often as I would want to or even should it still is one of my favourite places in the world. It really doesn’t take much to feel happy. Find your happy place wherever it might be.
Find your peace and quiet and you’ll find yourself and happiness.
