“You don’t have to stray
The oceans away
Waves roll in my thoughts
Hold tight the ring…
The sea will rise…
Please stand by the shore…”
What is it about the ocean? The last few months, for me, have been absolutely insane. Life changing. I’ve been stressed. I’ve been worried. I’m not going to lie, the last few months have been tough! My awesome Wife has been talking about a trip to the beach for a while now. Honestly, I never thought I’d go. I thought maybe I’d just let the family go and stay home and work. I gotta tell you, that would have been a bad decision.
We got to the condo, and my son wanted to go right to the beach. I went with him. I sat down and watched him swim in the ocean. An immediate calm came over me. I realized that I needed to be on this trip. I needed to hear the waves crashing on the beach. Sitting there watching my Son play in the ocean, I couldn’t have a negative thought. There could be no negative thoughts. None of the things that bother me or that I worry about every day mattered. Nothing mattered except us, here, playing in the ocean and having a great time. I’m so glad I’m here.
I’m not sure what the lesson is here other than make sure you take time for yourself and your family and enjoy nature. I’ve gotten a ton of work done since we’ve been here too. I’m totally inspired by the ocean. I’ve decided I need to make a trip to some coast somewhere every Month. 🙂 One day maybe I can own a place near the ocean.
