Endless Ocean

I went to the beach this weekend for some much needed R&R. Lately so much has been going on that I have felt overwhelmed and unsure of what is out there for me. There have been points in my life when I was positive I had everything figured out. I could "see" exactly what was laid before me. Now, I can't begin to envision what my life is going to be like, and where I am headed. I felt communal with the ocean, as if I now have an endless sea of possibilities. But, with every ocean, there will be rough waters, storms, and the unknown. While sitting on the beach with my toes digging in the sand, I stared out at the sun glistened waters. Something as vast as the ocean begins to make me feel so small, as well as, all my problems. I just hope that my journey is calm and purposeful...never looking back at the shore.

July 4, 1776

Happy Birthday America! As a history buff, I felt the need to recognize one of the most monumental days in our country's history.
