Lose Yourself

There are times when you find yourself out in nature and you are compelled to lose yourself in the breathtaking environment. Maybe, like the picture above, you find yourself on a foggy beach and somehow the sight and the feel of the fog wrapping around you becomes comforting and safe. You dig your toes deep into the soft sand, and before you know it, the sea splashes over your bare feet and the icy cold water makes you jump like a giddy child. Immediately you feel so alive and one with your surroundings.

There are so many ways to connect with nature, and this is one of my favorites. Sometimes we just need to stop and take a breath, and let nature handle all the rest.

        Good to know that you are doing well, MicheleπŸ™‚ No problem dear, we all lag behind at times, in following other fellows’ blogs, because of certain other life’s engagements. I was just a bit concerned and was missing your good posts and ofcourse your presence tooπŸ™‚ It’s too good that you spent a good time at beach, we all need that kind of restoration of ourselves and well being, happy for youπŸ™‚

        It’s my pleasure dear, your posts are worth readingπŸ‘πŸ™‚

    • That’s so sweet, Mark, thank you. Nature always inspires me, and especially when I’m at the beach. I think you feel that way too.

      • Oh yes indeed Michele, the beach and its beautiful body of water is grounding and opens me to…everything. I smile as I walk up and take that first salty breath and absorb its energy. I suffer so much each day as I take a walk and a coffee to celebrate its magic 🀣 May you ‘feel’ its love too dear lady πŸ˜€β€οΈπŸ™πŸ½
