from the city to escape away to one of the most beautiful places I’ve ever been
lucky enough to visit. I spent my time lounging in the sunshine, working on my
blog, staring out at the ocean & hanging out in the hot tub – not too
shabby, right? This is how it is every time I visit the coast – an overly
relaxing and peaceful atmosphere that feels almost tragic to leave.
I had never visited the coast until
I met Jer. He frequently goes to the coast because that’s where he grew up
& so if he wants to see his family he has to venture back over. I consider
myself quite lucky that he has to go over so often because it means I get to
tag alone, see his family & enjoy the beauty of the coast. It’s such a
magical little place and feels as though all the people there have no worries in mind – they just seem to enjoy life and be genuinely happy.
This getaway felt like something I
really needed to have, something that I could just sit and clear my mind. I’ve
felt like I’ve been in a bit of a whirlwind lately – in-between my two hour
commute, nightly runs, rushed dinners, rushed blogging I’ve felt like I have lost
a bit of myself in the hustle & bustle. It’s been harder to keep track of
everything I need to do & everything I want to with this cloud of stress
hanging over me. This weekend allowed me to focus on the things I enjoy (like
blogging) and so I feel like this huge weight has been lifted. Sometimes these
little times spent away allow us to refocus ourselves. I’ve realized I cannot
allow myself to bring the stress of my work home with me because it ruins the
things I truly love and enjoy about my life.It’s also made me realize I need to
go to the coast more often, that place just chills me out.
** also surely you notice that I’ve lost my tan, I am so sad over this. I am definitely sippin’ on some haterade over my pastiness today.
