If any of you actually read my posts then you can tell that I am such a beach girl. If I go on vacation to somewhere that isn’t the beach I get a little upset. Is that bad? In my head I’m like, “I belong on the beach”….
This is my moto.. if anyone makes me upset I say “beach please”. Sorry that’s inappropriate but I need to remember that I don’t to waste my time on people when I could just be at the beach. The beach has gotten me through a lot to be honest… I never feel depressed or anxious while I’m at the beach. There is something about it, it’s calming and brings me peace. The waves crashing against the shore have that sound that bring me new emotions and feelings. When I’m at the beach I feel connected with the water, the bright sand & sun, and all the animals that come with it. I’m connected to a deeper meaning. Nature. Living and nonliving. The palm trees have a beauty that is apart of me. I love the beach. The beach will forever be my first love.
“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise, and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.”
Rainer Maria Rilke
You never feel bothered at the beach. There could be numerous people around you and you would feel like you were the only one there. The beach gives me opportunities I never thought were possible. When I stand and face the waters and look out at the horizon I feel like I can achieve anything. Who thought a body of water would be someone’s biggest motivator?
Getting my daily dose of Vitamin D at the beach will keep me happy. I’m kind of like the saying, “an apple a day keeps the doctor away”. Except for me, it’s being out in the sun at the beach. I feel healthy and motivated when I’m out in the sun. It’s rejuvenating. It’s funny though, I don’t like being in the sun at home because it’s too hot and there is nothing to do except bake in the sun and there are no gorgeous views to look at. But… when I’m at the beach, it’s a different story. I will be outside from 9AM to 5PM.
The ocean is my own personal mediation device. I am me when I am at the sea. My emotions flee and my head becomes clear. I believe that the ocean speaks to us, and with how we look at it, the ocean could resemble a deeper meaning. The ocean is what we want it to be.
I hope one day you understand the deeper meaning of mother nature and the beauty of a beach. It’s my place, my happy place. I love it.
