The other day I woke up with the feeling of my feet wanting to take me somewhere, so I drove my car until I figured it out. I was in a familiar place that I haven’t been to in a while, the way to the beach. It is only a 15 minute drive from where I live and yet everyday I choose to stay inside the confines of our home.
It was cold walking from where I was parked going to the beach area, but when my feet felt the sand nothing else seems to have mattered. My mind left all the worries behind and I started feeling lighter. I found a beautiful spot close to the shore. I sat quietly among the birds and I meditated. I played tag with the water every time it crashed on the shore. I took photographs to capture one breathtaking moment to another. I felt a strong connection between the heavens and the Earth. I am grounded.
Looking out to the sea from where I was sitting in what feels like love at first sight, I knew that nothing could be better than what I am experiencing and feeling in that moment.
I thank my feet and my heart for guiding me home, for the places we’ve been, and for the many places that we will go together.
I am grateful.
What are you grateful for?
The view from where I was parked.
As I was walking closer to the beach
From where I sat
This awesome bird kept me company
I love this
