Sunday Thoughts: On Always Finding Your Way Back

We reach a moment of escape, diving into a manifestation of beauty and desire. We move full circle, like the waves, realizing we must always come back to meet the sun.

What do we do to renew our energy? How easily do we let it slip away from us? 

In the same way that water crashes into the sand, yet finds its way back to the depths of the sea; we do the same. With each day that passes, our thoughts, actions, motivations and desires ebb and flow, affecting the way we connect with ourselves and others.  

At times, our energy can be ravenous, like waves colliding against the steep rocks. In other moments, it brings us peace with its melodic tune. Although our energy directly affects our actions, we must understand that, when we stop to listen, we can be in control. Like the sea, we’ll always find our way back to meet the sun.

Finding Clarity by the Seaside

I spent the last few days by the seaside and it brought complete rejuvenation. From sunrise to sunset, filled with beautiful sights and an overwhelming sense of peace. There is something about the sea that always seems to bring a sense of clarity exactly when I need it. It had been a while since the last time I explored the ocean but this short getaway came just at the right moment. 

So often we get caught up in the day to day that it's easy to forget what brings us back to a peaceful equilibrium. The moments when we remember to let go of inhibitions and to live a little bit deeper. To say 'yes' a little bit more. To listen to your inner spirit, the one that we often push to the side and replace with what we 'think is right.' 

Find the places that bring you back to who you know you are and hold tight to how that makes you feel.
