June Adventure Day!

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.
