It has been months since I have written in this blog. Starting a new job has meant learning new things, meeting new people, and taking on new tasks. In the process my mind has become cluttered with all of the newness and it has made it challenging to just relax and refresh.
The beach is one of my favorite places on earth. The sounds of the waves, the feel of the water, and the breeze rushing over me just give me such a sense of serenity. God’s beauty surrounds me and I can hear myself think clearly. Though I am surrounded by people, I find time to be alone to recharge.
As we go through our busy lives, it is so easy to get caught up in the urgency of the day to day. Taking time to be still and to reflect can be so grounding.
I am so glad that my 2 vacations this year put me in spots surrounded by nature and beauty. A fantastic reminder to slow down, reflect, and appreciate the beautiful things around me.
