Sunset Obsessed!! πŸŒ…πŸŒ‡πŸ’–

β€œLife is about growing, learning, and becoming. You can not grow, learn, or become if you can not embrace the changes in your life.”
β€” Steve Rizzo

I couldn’t agree more with the above quote. Every day, every moment, we are growing. Physically yes, our nails, hair keeps growing, but we are growing mentally as well. Each day we are learning new things, facing new challenges, getting enriched by new experiences.

But most of the times we are more inclined to learn about things external to us and often overlook to learn things internal to us…things which are intrinsic, intangible. Things we don’t even realise about ourselves until push comes to shove. And suddenly we end up knowing something about ourselves that we had no idea of until now. Has that ever happened to you??

I had a similar situation today. Like I mentioned in my last post (read New beginnings 🏠), I have started an Insta page to share some of my most favourite pictures of travel, food, anything that touched my heart and that I feel like sharing with the world. While browsing my photo gallery, I had a sudden realisation..I have hundreds of photos of sunsets clicked in various places capturing the beautiful sunset hues in all its glory. Some clicked from my own balcony, some from a friend’s rooftop, some from the road, the beach, the hills, the mountain tops, while flying, while driving, while lazing on the beach. Based on the number of pics I have of them (which I was oblivious of, up until now), I can safely say, I don’t just like sunsets…I am Sunset obsessed!! πŸŒ…πŸ’•

Dont know why it took me so long to realise this, considering that I even wrote a poem about it sometime back (read La Magnifique Sunset πŸŒ‡πŸ’–).

I wonder what this sunset obsession reflects about me. Does it say something about the romantic in me, or the pessimist or the faint traces of the optimist I have been trying to make myself lately? Or, it simply shuts out the rest of the world for those brief moments, soothes the senses, comforts the over worrying heart, pleases my color loving soul and restores the zen in me? Looking out for some perspective from fellow sunset lovers. What do you guys think??πŸ€”πŸ€”

Anyways, I wanted to share some of these beautiful sunsets with you all. Hope y’all enjoy them as much as I do.

I hope you enjoyed them. Do tell in the comments which ones you liked the most (or not). Will look forward to your comments.πŸ₯°πŸ₯°

You can check out my insta page here for more pics. Enjoy the last week of 2021 my lovely WP friends. Much love to you all. πŸ’•πŸ’•

  1. I’m sunset obsessed too! Honestly, all the pics are amazing. I couldn’t pick a favorite. I think they say it says something different about you whether you prefer sunsets or sunrises. I’ll look it up. Yes, we are always discovering new things about ourselves everyday and it’s beautiful that way.

    1. Yes you’re so right….we are all constantly evolving, learning, relearning, discovering..we are always works in progress…and there’s always scope for improvement πŸ˜ŠπŸ’—


  2. A lover of sunsets is called an ‘opacarophile’. ‘opacare’ which is Latin for dusk or sunset, and ‘phile’ which is Greek for love.

  3. A sunrise represents a new day, new possibilities and new challenges . It is also fresh, with no carry over from the previous day. A sun rise person looks at life as a series of new beginnings and is willing to start afresh. There are unknowns, risks and challenges but they don’t deter and instead they stimulate.
    A sun set on the other hand having seen the rough is peaceful and resplendent in beauty, so much so that even after the sunset, it continues, with the reflected light from the moon. A sun set person likewise has led a well lived life, is content, full of gratitude and has much wisdom and sense of peace to share.

    1. I absolutely love love this interpretation….it makes so much sense…I feel sunsets also have a sense of hope attached..that this day (good or bad) has passed and a new day with new opportunities awaits. Thank you so much dear for sharing your thoughts….πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•πŸ’•


    1. Thank you so much Deeksha…thrilled you liked my pics and even happier to know you’re a sun obsessed person just like me😊πŸ₯°πŸ’—….am sure I would love sunrises too…but im NOT a morning person hence don’t get to witness too many sunrises πŸ˜‚πŸ˜‚


  4. When we are at the lake in the summer, I find myself taking pictures of the sunsets almost every night. They are gorgeous, and every one unique. As an artist has pointed out, sunsets are beautiful evidence that the Creator is a God of order and at the same time capable of infinite variety within that order.
