I’m sorry that I’ve missed a few weeks of posting! Truth be told, I had a bad head cold, high anxiety, and started up summer camp at work. I’m exhausted but finally getting in the swing of things again!
I woke up Sunday morning with the realization that it was my adventure day for the month, and I had no idea what I wanted to do. Frankly, I totally forgot and I had very little incentive to do much. But then I went scrolling through my Instagram…
I saw a few posts from friends who were spending the weekend at the beach, and I thought to myself, “I want to do that, but how do they do that? How do they get up the energy for this?”
A little voice inside of me simply whispered, “Do it.”
So I immediately packed a day bag for the beach, drove to the store to get a picnic lunch, and drove the forty-five minutes to Donner Lake.
This lake has a special, magical feeling. My mother used to take us up there often during the summer, and it just feels like home. It is one of the few places where I don’t have an ounce of anxiety; where I can truly unwind and relax.
I spent hours swimming and snacking and laying in the sun, and I came home completely recharged. I haven’t felt this peaceful in months.
And the whole time, that little voice kept saying, “Do this more.”
I think I’ll have to do just that.
