Well, hey there folks!
I hope you didn’t miss me too much last week with no new post.
I have taken the last week to recharge, reset, and rejuvenate myself with the entities of Summer, sandals, sunshine, and kindness.
Oh, and yes…
…I do have sunburn.
Shocker I know.
I’m currently in the peeling stage and using gobs of aloe.
And I mean GOBS.
It is always amazing how a week at the beach does to me.
It’s like the mind is cleared, epiphanies about life are had, and the sun just shines into your soul.
It is a beautiful thing.
When I’m at the beach, everything in life washes away like the seashells taken out by the waves of blue water flowing back to the ocean.
Even without running 50 full marathons this year, it certainly hasn’t slowed my life down at all.
If anything, there are moments when I’m feeling busier.
In fact, there are moments where I wonder how I even did all the running with everything else in my life.
Anyhoo, I digress.
I know I’ve said this before and I apologize to say it again, but I never realize how much I actually need to recharge, rejuvenate, and reset until I’m actually in the moment doing it.
Don’t get me wrong–I have and always will be the person who thrives on the go, go, go lifestyle. Most days and times of the year, I love it. But there is always that one occasional moment when it gets the best of me.
And I shut down.
But this week at the beach has been a very welcome rejuvenating reset that Mr. Sunshine needed.
And through it all including every morsel of sand that touched my feet, I still come charging at you encouraging that kindness is key in this world.
There are just so many ways to display it to others, even strangers.
This week at the beach, I displayed kindness by:
- Tipping extra to the servers and bartenders that served me.
- Smiles at the stranger and made conversation with them.
- Picked up some trash during my run that I saw along the sidewalk.
So, amidst the crazy thing we call life, please find your very own way to rejuvenate, reset, and recharge.
And please, please, please, PLEASE above all else…
Sprinkle sunshine always,
