Facing Myself…Head On

There has been a lot going lately.

I can’t share all of it, but I will share this:

I drove out to the ocean on Saturday to think. I do some of my best thinking by the water.

It was cold, but beautiful.

The waves.

The spotty sunshine.

I was taking time to SEE what was around me.

A Canada Goose greeted me on my arrival, and was quite chatty before he/she flew off. (As a side note, I saw another at a bend in the road on my way home. This may have meaning, but not sure.)

I realized, once I found my favourite spot to sit, that I am keeping myself bogged down by so many things/feelings/expectations.

By keeping myself bogged down I am not moving forward.

Bit by bit, I am unloading myself of burdens that are no longer mine. I cannot steep in bitterness, nor can I keep blaming myself for things that are out of my control.

I made mental notes of things I wanted to do, and am taking time to write them down. I may just keep a journal (non specific) so I can refer back to these things at a later date.

Taking strict expectations off of myself. I am embracing all of me – faults and all.

I am shedding my skin.

Be kind world.

Be kind.

    Hit me right in the feels, this one. I hear you a million times over. I do the very same thing that you do – I go to the most remote area by the sea I can find and sit in silence alone. The crashing waves and the sea spray pulls the negativity out of me… the stuff deep deep down that I push away in hopes it will magically fix itself. I usually cry hard, the sound of those waves drags the tears out and I really truly feel it refreshes my soul and gets me ready to start again.

    The sea lets me get back to me. It truly does set me free.

  2. This resonated with me.

    I feel like there are things I’ve been avoiding lately…deep things that I don’t necessarily want to face…hoping that it will fix itself. You’re really brave for facing this. For now, I think I’m going to continue to hide.

      I was SO SCARED. I’ve been sitting on so much for so long. If I didn’t face it down I think it would have swallowed me whole. You’ll know when your time is right ❤️
