“When anxious, uneasy and bad thoughts come, I go to the sea, and the sea drowns them out with its great wide sounds, cleanses me with its noise and imposes a rhythm upon everything in me that is bewildered and confused.” – Rainer Maria Rilke
When I’m having a particularly trying, confusing, or overwhelming day, I head to the sea. It is there that I find my serenity. I simply sit, smell the salty ocean air, watch the waves as I listen to their songs while they crash onto the rocks, and I let the winds blow all of my troubles away. And then I am refreshed and ready to face anything life has to toss my way, good or bad.
Your location can make a world of difference in your attitude, how you react to life’s circumstances, and to other’s behavior. My location keeps me grounded, healthy, and sane. I’m fortunate to have this serenity in my own back yard.
