Yesterday, I got off of a stressful day at work, and headed out to the beach with Nicole. I am having a rough time at my externship because after talking with classmates, it seems they are doing more. It came to a head with an exchange I had with my clinical instructor. (I was just not understanding her expectations) And so it was a perfect afternoon to hit "Reset".
Once I saw the green-blue ocean, it's power started to work. After only sitting on the sand for about 20 minutes, I got my "beach high". An all-over calm set in and stayed for the duration of the evening....Reset had happened.
Last night my boyfriend asked me what my favorite thing to do at the beach was, and I didn't really have an answer for him. He replied with, "I'm just trying to understand why you LOVE it SO much" to which I replied:
"Because it's the best visual of God for me. It's so big, stretches farther than I can see, it's deeper than I can possibly imagine, and it connects everything together. (The 7 oceans really are just 1 big ocean) and the waves are so powerful and can be unpredictable. I am just reminded how insignificant my life and my problems are. The combination of the rhythm of the waves, the sun, the smell of salt...nothing can compare."
Perfect day to hit Reset.
