Usually, these little holidays are supposed to make everyone more relaxed, give us the boost we need to get through the rest of the Spring....
For me, it has done the opposite. I have been so busy the last month or more, all this downtime has me on pins and needles. Not that I have actually attempted to do anything productive with all this time on my hands!
Today, my mom left for a weekend at the beach...the beach we go to every year since I was probably 10 years old. I have many memories of this beach and no matter what beach I am at, I feel like that is where all my "problems" can be solved.
I imagine the simple act of laying my problems, stacking them miles deep, right at the edge of the water....waiting for the ocean waves to take them away. Take everything, the worries, the concerns, the anger, the bitterness, the regret...take all of it way out into the middle of the ocean and leave it there. That way, I can get up and walk away with my head clear, my shoulders lightened, and a new perspective.
