Everyday life can be so hectic and busy sometimes. Do you have a sacred place that wheels you back in and grounds you from all the chaos of everyday life? The Beach is mine. Growing up in Hawaii meant I was at the beach often. Whenever we stop by I’m reminded of my home and childhood when things were so free, innocent, and pure. Dealing with everyday life can become overwhelming at times. Taking time to do something that makes you happy can give you a reenergized boost that we could all use every once in a while.
On this day, my family and I were on our way home from lunch. My daughter fell asleep and I asked my husband to swing by the beach so I could snap a few shots (and to play with a new lens I just got, haha). As I was walking closer to the water with my son, I felt a sense of calmness, hominess, and safe feeling. I never realized how much just seeing the beach, touching the sand, and hearing the waves could make me feel like this. It was an unplanned stop, which turned out to be just what I needed. Plus my son had a blast digging in the sand and running around while I snapped a few pictures. So when things get busy, or your feel overwhelmed, take some time to find your sacred place or the thing that makes you feel calm and centered again. Enjoy your weekend!
