One item off my checklist
Earlier on this year, I made a list of New Year resolutions. One of them included giving the beach another chance.
I’m not exactly one to squeal in delight when a beach trip presents itself as an opportunity. & Lord knows how many times I’ve told myself to get my body bikini ready, all of which have ended in turmoil. The fact of the matter is, I feel paralyzed by the ocean. There’s something about its vastness and mystery that leave me unable to swim when at sea. Maybe it’s the age old warning that I’ve been told one too many times as a kid, “Don’t go too far, you could drown."
Never am I ever going beyond 6 feet when at the beach.
I was always perfectly fine sticking to where my feet could touch the ground…
My boyfriend, on the other hand, is a complete beach bum… Hence the whole "give the beach a second shot” resolution…
So far, I’ve had two different beach trips this year, both with the boyfriend and our friends. And now I can honestly say that I get it. Now, I completely understand why some people just can’t get enough of the beach.
Although I’d still very much prefer the sand over the sea at any time of day, I’m happy to say that I’ve found a new friend in this thing of beauty. I mean just look at the photo.
Hats off to you, love. You have changed me after all. :)
