Trip To The Beach
One of our families’ favorite places to go to decompress is the beach. Somehow it seems like the waves just make the tensions go away.
We may not live on a farm, but we can grow where we live.

We have spent many summers going to the beach. Going to the beach is probably a carryover from Molly and I always enjoying the lakes and rivers back in Missouri. It just seems like we always planned things around water.
The one thing different about going to the beach is looking out over the ocean and seeing a horizon but not the other side. I know of course you can’t see the other side, but that in itself is what makes going to the beach so humbling. The vastness of the water reminds oneself that we are just a small, but important part of this creation.
You let your feelings go with the waves, knowing that it doesn’t help to worry, about what seemed, before hand important. It seems like worrying about things is what we are suppose to do. But worry has not changed the course of events in my life. So, let the waves take them away.
When you walk along the water and look back at the steps you left, they are soon washed away and a clean slate is left.
That is what impressed me so much the first time that Molly and I saw the ocean. It was as if now, nobody was going to tell us what we could or couldn’t do. We had a whole new life to explore. Our dreams were only as big as we could imagine. With the ocean in front of us, it made us dream big.
Life is not easy. No one every told me it would be this hard. When I am able to take a deep breath and just let my mind go, that is when I know I can get back in the game and keep going.
My point is to take the time to decompress. Let the emails go, let the voice mails go and just take in what is around you. Smell the roses or ocean air.
