nothing life changing.
however, i am so excited…im taking a drive. im leaving soon to beat the rush hour 405 traffic, and im headed nowhere….all i know is that im headed south to a coast. im packing up and taking my man to the beach. why? because i can.
i feel at times we are hamsters on a wheel, or said poetically by Billy Corgan, “rats in a cage”. but not today…im rebelling and forging a resistance against cage life on this idle wednesday. therefore in a few hours it will be me, my dude, and the beach. maybe a few rocks, and a blanket, but not much more. these are the moments in which i am grateful. the little things. the small things i have that create a big life for me.
-enough gas in my tank (which is a blessing these days with these prices ;-p)
-a little candlelit dinner, oh and yes its coming, wait for it, wait for it….and a walk on the beach. (i cant be uber-masculine ALL of the time….being a girl from time to time keeps things interesting to say the least…)
-a beautiful coast to look at, free of charge
-and people around me that care for me.
these are the small things. the tiny fibers that meld, join, and harmonize for the creation of a big big life for me.
there is nothing i could want for in this moment. i share so many times in my posts my struggles and challenges, and in this very moment i have no friction. everything is in sync.
take just a second to look at your tiny grooves and lines that form the masterpiece of your life. for some of you that could be your career (your purpose), your children, your spouse that you argued with this morning that you actually love more than breath itself. your cat that is so aloof you keep begging for its validation….all these things. tiny, beautiful, little, perfect pieces. these are the fibers. wrap yourself up in this blanket even if for just a second, and you will soon remember how big your life truly is. take a breath and in that breath there will be so much thanks and happiness.
we could all use a little extra happiness, no? well, its there just waiting for us to acknowledge its existence.
and make love….(maybe on the beach……..)
always make love.
