Today I was incredibly restless.
It was grey, there was wispy rain. Some of it may have had to do with the interrupted night – a man actually died in a horrible crash outside our home last night. There were emergency services everywhere past midnight.
The low mood carried into the day.
We didn’t want to do anything… yet being free, off work, together, we felt we HAD to do something.
Yet we couldn’t be bothered.
Look at this precious life we are granted! And to waste it away on days, doing nothing, lounging around, yawning, and crying “bored,” when we have just been privy to another life being snatched away?
But that’s assuming life is meant to be busy. Full of stuff. Running around.
Life can be just as beautiful, and just as meaningful, by enjoying the things around you. Taking a pause. Breathing in deeply. And respecting our earth.
So we took a walk. To clear our heads, process our thoughts, and connect ourselves to the ground on which we walk on every day.
The water was there too. We may not have touched it, but we felt the force of the wind as it rippled across it, smelt the sea air, and knew that no matter how beautiful it looked, those waters were merciless.
The danger is so far, but a wrong step from the lookout, and it can come running up to our faces with a loud smack.
Life can change so easily my friends. Take care out there, and enjoy whatever it is that makes you happy… yes, even if it means lying on the couch.
Sometimes we need that too… only as long as we get back up again. 💪
