Day 22: Be Present
Some people suggest that a good way to deal with stress is to step back for a few minutes and imagine a place that is peaceful for you. Today's blog assignment is to describe such a place so here goes.
I drop my flip flops by the pier, and smile as I feel the warmth of the sand between my toes. I tilt my head back, breathing in the fresh scent of sea salt. Hmmm. I continue walking until the foundation under my feet becomes solid, and feels cooler to the touch.
I pause at the water's edge, gazing at the continual rolling of the waves. Even when no one is here, the waves continue to roll -- sometimes a gentle roll and other times tumultuous. Today the tide is moderate, beckoning me to join it. Slowly, I make my way into the cool water. Ahhh, the water is so refreshing. I feel the sun on my face and shoulders, and the cool of the water makes me feel alive!
Oh how I wish this post were true right now! I absolutely love the beach. It is the one place on earth where I can go and truly let my worries go. I am to clear my mind and enjoy the space. To all of you who are at the beach now, enjoy!
