Lex on the Beach
I went for a walk on the beach today. On a chilly January afternoon, I kicked off my shoes and let the cold sand fill the spaces between my toes. As I looked out toward a crystal clear ocean made of glass, a feeling of contentment washed over me. Totally happy to be in that moment, alive, and healthy. I filled my lungs with the salty ocean air and thought to myself, life is good.
I'm a busy girl. Up early, to bed late, activites filling my every hour in between. I've got things to do. So I'm embarrassed to admit that I actually had to be reminded to slow down, by my microwave. Yes, my microwave.
Every day we make changes. We change our underwear, we change the oil in our cars, we change our minds. Change is everywhere, every day.
If you think about it, the only real constant in life is change, and I'm okay with that. Change invigorates the soul, it keeps life exciting and relevant. I find comfort in making peace with a new situation; I actually thrive on the challenge. Of course that's easy to say when it's a change I ask for, something I wanted. Like the other day when I changed my drink order at In-N Out Burger from a Diet Coke to a Strawberry shake. See...change is good!
