The water was calm and the sun was bright. In the midst of winter finding a rare day when the winds are calm and the temperatures reasonable. The draw of water attracts many, but in the quiet of February few were near.
I am stepping into a new direction and road trips and water help me find my center. I get to breathe and get lost without the wear and tear of hiking in the hills, don’t get me wrong I love that too! I get to sit and embrace the sun, feel the wind and experience being centered – at least that was the goal.
I truly have a hard time slowing down. When attempting to sit calmly and breathe, I have recognized I can take 5 breaths before my need to fidget, scratch, itch, readjust my foot or finger.
Wow that was something I had not acknowledged and to think this is calm for me. It blows my mind as I really hate to see what I was like before. Nervous erratic energy, no focused and I felt like I was in a good place. Not so much!!
I am exploring this new side, embracing the BE – BE in the moment, BE still with self. What is opening up for me is clarity and being one with self. Opportunities to explore meditation. I am noticing the small things, the birds that fly by and watch the movement in the water. As I venture forward, I am intrigued about what will come up forward.
