Life is tough. There’s a lot of moving pieces, there’s a lot going on, all the time. Whether it’s going well or rocky, it’s hard. There’s always some changes we need to navigate and some challenges we need to overcome. And I know life won’t present us problems we can’t solve. I know we got this.
It feels like… it just feels like there’s always something new we need to deal with. And I know that life is not about solving everything to reach a perfect destination but enjoying the journey itself, I know that. And I like that in theory. It’s just that- sometimes it feels like I need everything to stop for a minute so I can catch up.
Also, it’s the biggest full moon of the year as I’m recording this, which might mean nothing to you but to me it means heightened emotions, feeling a little lost, or unsteady. We are energetically called to look at our image of ourselves with our public image and our purpose in life. And you know I’m a sucker for these things, so this brings a lot of questions around my feelings of worthiness, of self love, and self care; questionings around if my actions are in line with my feelings.
And don’t get me wrong, I love questioning these things, that’s how I get to know myself better and how I figure out what I want in life and what I need in the moment. I think we should always do that, always check in with ourselves. It’s just that it requires action and change once you figure them out, and it’s tiring. I’m tired.
So I went to the beach.
I didn’t swim because I was on my period, I still am (tmi?) and hormones for sure play a huge role in these blues. But I walked down and dipped my toes in the ocean. I felt lucky that I can do that.
I felt the sun on my skin, the sand in my hair, and the salt on my finger tips. You gotta love the beach.
And I was in good company, so I thought I must have done something right for these amazing people to enjoy being with me. I felt lucky that they like me.
I had this yummy hard ice tea called Lover Boy, which is kindly sponsoring today’s video. Nah that’s a lie, nobody’s sponsoring this video, I am. But look at this branding, isn’t it adorable? It tastes pretty good too. Anyways.
I looked around and saw all these people enjoying their day at the beach. They seemed so happy, they seemed as if they had not a single worry in the world. They probably thought the same about me. It’s as if we leave our worries at home on a beach day.
I realized how every single one of us is constantly dealing with something, whether big or small, internal or external; everyone has their own shit going on. You do too, right? I’ve been feeling so overwhelmed this past week that I guess I wanted to know that it’s not just me. And I wanted to share how I feel so you know it’s not just you. Life gets exhausting for all of us, right?
But, luckily, we can put them aside for one day and just enjoy a beach day.
