Nothing soothes my soul more than a walk on the beach or sitting down on the sand and Iistening to the sound of the waves while I close my eyes and just take a deep breath letting all the stress just fade away. It really helps me to dig deep inside of me and find my inner peace. The ocean is the most mysterious but also the most magnificent part of the earth. I think we’d all agree that the feeling the ocean gives you when you are nearby is just simply amazing.
I have been living near the beach for a while now but I didn’t go as often, because I had this idea in my head that the beach in The Netherlands would never make me feel like the beach on an island. And in some ways this is true, but as I’ve been on my path of self growth and appreciation I’ve realized that it’s okay if you don’t have it all, just make the best of what you already have. So after I came back from my two trips I have been visiting the beach near my house. On very hot days I go tanning and floating in the ocean and on more chilly days I just relax, listen to the sound of the waves, stare at the horizon and watch the sunset.
Out there beyond that horizon your dreams await you and if you don’t chase them someone else will
