Friday, while I was lying on the sand soaking up some sun on a perfect spring day, I was more at peace than I had been in weeks. It wasn't necessarily because I wasn't letting myself think. In fact, I may have been thinking about things more than usual, but I was able to look at them in a more positive mindset. The setting of surf and sand had such a way of allowing me to ponder and reflect on some stresses, while also providing me with the comfort that change really is ahead, and amazing things are coming.
I felt like my worries were being washed away by the same waves that were lapping onto the shore just a few yards away from my sand-covered feet. And, guess what? I was actually willing to let the worries go. For once, I didn't attempt to hold onto them...I just let them be carried out to sea. It was refreshing.
How do you let go of your worries? Where are your places of relaxation?
