I have been feeling a bit poorly for the past few days – just a bit ‘off’. I’m sure I’m not alone in having ‘off’ moments. I haven’t felt like blogging, or running or doing much of anything to be honest, which is most unlike me.
I am happy to say that I am feeling much better now and while I was ‘off’ I took the opportunity to just read – books, other people’s blogs, newspapers. I made lots of comments on blogs where I thought it was warranted and liked many more posts than I usually do. There are some great bloggers out there who are full of creativity, flair, honesty and randomness. I really enjoyed the time I spent connecting with others. It’s a lovely blogosphere out there.
During this time we had a lovely weekend at the beach with family and friends and the weather was very grey until the day we left, when the sun shone in all its glory. It didn’t matter that the skies were grey and threatening as we enjoyed lazing about reading, chatting, playing board games and celebrating the opportunity we’d been given to connect with each other.
I particularly loved hearing the sound of the ocean pounding the sandy shore just outside our rented beach house. So much so that I took a video of it which I have included here for you. When you live in the mountains, like I do, it’s these simple things that I sometimes enjoy the most.
Family, friends, enjoying simple pleasures and having fun are what it’s all about to me – I’ll get back into my blogging and my running and my fitness quest but for the moment I’m taking stock and trying to enjoy the simple things in life – which includes a slower pace for the moment.
