Have you ever wanted to change your life? Many say they do; few actually do it. Why is it so hard to change?
All of us are capable of making decisions that can change our life and move towards something new and different… easy peezy, right? So why are we holding on for dear life to sameness?
Stop saying “what if ” and start saying “I’ll try It”
Would that work? It would help. Making a declarative statement always helps.
It probably sounds like a hundred articles you’ve read somewhere before, but how often have you put real change to the test? The kind of change that challenges you to exercise in the wee hours of the morning when you’re exhausted or deprive yourself of food that satisfies you to the very core of who you are?
Change is real
And moving all around us
Filling our days with raw life.
It’s unpredictable with no grace for emotion. No one really enjoys losing comfort zones when you can’t reach back and grab on to what once was there, right? From that angle life’s depth of field looks different, a little foggier, not as much clarity that sameness gives.
Nothing Stay The Same; It’s a Process
Change is a process, not an event. Stages people! We are constantly experiencing new stages (and some are better than others).
And the Newness fades quickly too. It seems the scent looses its mystery and the odor becomes ordinary, and the strange becomes familiar, things once admired loose their attraction. Such a wonder… The lure of change.
Have you ever experienced a big change in your life? Most of us have and made it through to the other side a stronger person. These changes teach us a lot about ourselves that we don’t always want to know yet, but it’s usually a tool for our toolbox. In a second part series I will share a change that I survived that changed my life. Please feel free to share your changes on the website on FB or any of my social media platforms. I would enjoy reading your story and sharing with the blog community.
So love ❤️
Dogs aren’t allowed on the beaches during tourist season so soon my dogs can enjoy the beach again.

Go to the ocean. All else can wait. Everything will be there waiting for you when you get back.
How can you resist the call of the sea? Where is the will power to stay home and do laundry or anything? It’s a call hard to ignore. Have you heard it before?
There’s no regret once you arrive. It’s worth it!
And don’t worry over the weather forecast, they are wrong most of the time. And besides, if it rains you won’t melt :)).
If you get too hot there’s always the pier. A delightful spot to find some shade. Before you settle down on the beach, look first for a nearby pier and get closeby. The piers make for an interesting place to watch the different goings on, fishing etc.
Lie back and take a nap.
Don’t forget your flops! The sand is super hot, so be kind to your feet.
Make friends with the seagulls. They are beautiful, friendly creatures and will gladly come and visit. They love to eat food from outstretched arms. No fears, they don’t bite.
If you enjoy people watching there’s plenty here to entertain yourself… People are sleeping, others quietly reading, many talking, and everyones enjoying themselves mostly simply relaxing.
For me, it’s all about swimming. July is the perfect month for ocean swimming. The water feels like cool, liquid velvet swallowing your skin.
As the roll of the tide tosses you about to and fro, swimming parallel to the shore makes riding the waves smoother, and easier.
Experiencing “big blue” creates a state of calmness, openness, peacefulness and a great depth of happiness, often referred to as “the happy place”.
A blue mind. Do you have one?
To stand in front of the ocean and watch the waves crash against the shore, and to feel the sand tug under your feet is to fully know that you’re alive.
And this is the place that binds the soul by captivity with ocean forever. A relationship is formed that’s forever loyal, and dedicated to a certain kind of serenity not found anywhere else on the earth.
The ocean stirs the heart, inspires the imagination and brings eternal joy to the soul.
