It is a beautiful sunny day. I am lying in the sun listening to the waves break on the shore. I feel relaxed and content to read a book or fall asleep for a short nap.
Ah yes! Nice dream that is what I wish I was doing today. I am not. I did take a walk to the cliffs and watch the waves roll in and out. While I was watching and listening to the ocean I was wishing I could live my dream.
I walked back to my house and made some lunch still thinking about the sounds of summer; the waves breaking on the shore while people frolic in the sea.
My time for dreaming has ended, I now need to get ready to go to work. My mind is wanting to stay at the beach, a relaxed state of mind. I am grateful to have a job and grateful that I do live so close to the ocean that I see it every day.
Do you appreciate what is in front of you? Do you long to be somewhere else?
