This is a repost from my old blog August 2015.
The sounds of the ocean cleanse the body, mind and soul and let it seek balance.
The waves that come crashing into the shore represents my life, love, joy, tears, grief, stress, pain, and anger.
Life is all about the love, joy and happiness you have in your life that is what makes it special. It is also about the many tears you have shed over those who have let you down.
Many people in your life will come and go, but those who matter the most will always be there by your side.
When the waves go back out that represents letting everything negative go so I can find inner peace, relax and most of all just breathe. Life can be quite suffocating at times letting go of all the negative people and clutter in my life gives me space for more happiness and joy.
Never let others bring you down be strong enough to withstand the wind from their storms.
The sand that is behind me represents my life and the footprints I have left behind on this long journey called life. I have been a daughter, sister, wife, mother, and a grandmother. Those things define me, but they are not who I am. Somewhere while on this journey of life I lost me.
The sand in front of me represents the future and it is only about the two of us again. Our life together has done a complete circle.. We will do the things we want to do when we want to do them without planning around anyone else. While on this journey, I will find me again, discover who I truly am and figure out why I lost me in the first place.
The sea shells behind me represent the people’s lives I have touched and those who have touched mine. There have been so many people who have touched my life over the years family members, friends, and acquaintances.
It is great to be there for everyone else but sometimes you need someone to be there for you.
The sea shells in front of me represent the people who’s lives I will touch or who will touch mine. This gives me the inspiration for the future, where we’re going and what we’re doing with the rest of our lives. The future is bright, beautiful and full of new experiences.
I sit silently, listening to the ocean, watching her waves come crashing into the shore, feeling the sea breeze as it surrounds me, tasting the salt water as it sprays me in the face, and I breathe and then I can relax and find the inner peace I deserve.
Often times we walk past something without noticing it.
Then one day we look down and see the beauty in the Verbena that is cascading across the moss rock. It is those days that let me know my life is in balance and that I have inner peace.
Life is simple but sometimes our minds are so cluttered with things we never get to find that balance.
Take a deep breath walk outside and look for something that brings you joy. Stand there and enjoy the moment.
