We need to look after ourselves well.
Where the mind leads the body will follow.
It was a sunny morning. I took my older boys to school. It’s more drop than kiss these days.
Then drove down to Collaroy beach. Enjoyed feeling the autumn sun warm on my skin.
Love a briny tang on the air. Waves were thumping hard along the soft sand on the beach, shifting it.
Such a beautiful day for a walk. Such a lovely spot for gazing far and away out to sea.
Collaroy beach has the loveliest of rockpools. I joined several older ladies and gents swimming up and down. Washed about a bit when the waves broke over.
Waved to some little fishes.
It was sublime.
When you swim in the chilly sea like this, you sure know you are alive.
Jumped out and wrapped up in a couple of towels.
Would love to say that I sat in a cafe and thought great thoughts but in fact I drove home in towels and cossie.
Because a carpet man was coming. Mundane!!
Do you look after yourself sometimes?
Do you go somewhere really beautiful by ourself?
Do see and feel the beauty around you?
Because I am truly so grateful to be alive and to feel so alive when swimming in the sea. Two dear friends of mine have passed away far too, too young. Feel as if I am seeing every bloody blade of grass at the moment. Being alive and enjoying this beautiful, beautiful world is NOt to be taken for granted.
