You know how people say “I’m going to need a vacation after this vacation”? Well, usually that’s me. I love to travel, but I am always overly ambitious with my itinerary and can sometimes come home even more exhausted than when I left. Even though I always have a blast it can sometimes be nice to just relax and enjoy quiet time. That is after all why we take vacations, right?
I was only supposed to be in San Diego Friday through Sunday, but the airline gods had other plans for me. My Sunday flight was cancelled making it impossible for me to fly home until early Monday morning (oh, darn!). With nothing planned, hubby and I decided to head back to our favorite spot on Coronado Island and catch a Cali sunset.
With our beach towel in hand we made our way to the dunes, away from the remaining beach bums, to sit and wait. The sky was cloudy and casting the softest glow over everything. Between that and the rhythmic sound of the waves hitting the shore it was hard not to feel peaceful and relaxed. I didn’t realize until that moment how stressed I have been lately.
I have been hearing the phrase “I’m just too busy” everywhere lately. Everyone always has so much going on in their lives that I think we all get into a routine of going, going, going and we’re not taking the time to recharge. I know my “busy-ness” is mostly self-inflicted. Blogging has added a whole new layer of work to my life that I am more than happy about, but because I love it, I don’t always know when to stop.
What I love about blogging is that it gives me an excuse to go out and look for inspiration, constantly. You start to see the world differently. It gives you a new perspective on your priorities. It’s so important to take time to unplug and just enjoy the moment. With so much tragedy in the world today, I hope we can all take time to think about how small we really are – like a single grain of sand. One grain does not make up a beach, it takes all of us. We are all in this together, so remember to be kind to one another.
I hope you all have a relaxing weekend! Thank you for taking the time to read my post, it always means the world to me. Sending you lots of love! xo Bryn
