My little Friday ritual – buying flowers. I always buy myself a bouquet of flowers on Fridays. Each Friday – different flowers. What the flowers depend on my mood, weather, whether I want tenderness or brightness, energy. And I’ve been doing this for over a year now. It does not cost me much as my niece works in a flower shop, and on the way home after Friday work, I always stop at her shop. I get a big discount and sometimes I even get flowers for free there. So it became the ritual that pleases me.
Each time I go jogging, I take some money to the pocket because on the way from the forest to my home there is a bakery with fresh products. Going home I buy a croissant with chocolate. Always. And just after returning from the bakery, I make myself a delicious tea that I drink from a porcelain cup used by my granny that also reminds me of the fragility, tenderness, and I gladly eat that croissant.
It seems like barely visible rituals, but the more diverse they are, the calmer my soul is. Have a nice Saturday.
