Sometimes the responsibilities that come with an adult make me a little grumpy. I mean, why must have have to work both weekend days (along with every week day) and do an assignment for my research method class?
Well it’s because I want experience in a library and I want to earn a degree and I want to stay at my job for as long as I can.
But I want to have fun, too!
So yesterday I was grumpy and it was a beautiful day, so when I left work at 1pm I knew where I was headed: to the ocean.
I drank a latte and sat in the sand and took pictures and breathed in fresh sea water and was grateful.
I was grateful for my toes that I could wiggle in the sand, for the music that carries me there in the car I drive, for the beautiful start to autumn, for soy milk making it possible to drink lattes from Starbucks, for my eyes that let me see as I took pictures.
I think nature might be the cure for everything. That and gratitude.
