Cloudy Skies and Grey Days

Sometimes life is rushing too fast. I often need to press pause. Take a step back. Make sure that I’m balanced and live life in a way that  makes me truly happy. Last weekend I spent a few hours at Porteau Cove, a beautiful little beach outside Vancouver BC that is full of driftwood. I needed to find my inner balance again. Recharge.

What is it with the aquatic life that makes us feel at peace? The constant movement? The energy? The vastness? The relaxing sound? We are all born and still live in a natural world. We are made of the same molecules as nature. Connection with nature helps us to heal and find the natural balance. The ocean healed me this day. I found balance. Many of us live a life disconnected to nature, and I believe that this makes us very unhappy and stressed.
