It’s been so lovely to explore Santa Monica, feel the salty breeze from the Pacific ocean and eat delicious food around town.
(I’ll share some of my finds in an upcoming ‘Postcard from...’ soon)
Tomorrow we return to “normal” life, and as I walked along the beach today I thought of the fleeting moments.
The moments I so wish I’d grabbed with both hands and lived in, to the fullest.
Instead I often times let them pass me by thinking I’ll do it next time I’m here, I’ll eat, see or say hello next time.
But since the now is the only valid currency we have, I decided today to yet again be more aware of the moment.
To live in it deliberately!
Before breakfast one of my brothers called and shared one more time the wonderfully crazy thing he’d just did.
I felt so incredibly happy for him, as he’d grabbed the moment to the fullest and gone ahead and fulfilled a crazy little dream of his.
(I will most definitely tell you about his dream as soon as we have some photos to share!)
Who says you can’t sail around the world at the age of 85, or buy that island property in an exotic destination, travel to Europe for the first time or start up a bakery even if you’r diploma says engineer.
Ahh, but that is life’s secret ingredient to the mondane isn’t it?
That there are no limits and the world is open, we just have to take one step out of our comfort zone, risk a little and live in the moment, non?
Happy Thursday, full of new possibilities;)
