The Beach Is My Best Friend

IMG_0562-4The beach is my best friend…is it yours? Obviously, the best day to go to the beach is a hot sunny day where you can relax and soak in some Vitamin D. If there is an opportunity for some time at the beach I suggest you take it, because you never regret a trip, walk, bike, or drive to the beach. It is always the one place on earth where I can reflect, unwind, breathe, play, smile, and laugh.

The beach lets you bring a party of friends and family to celebrate a birthday, it invites couples to stroll and fall deeper in love, it is an outdoor gym for many locals, and it is a place where you can come alone. A place where you can just show up and not be judged. Your race, gender, age and body type are  welcome. The beach doesn’t discriminate and neither does anyone else at the beach because the other beach go-ers are there for the similar reasons, to forget reality for a moment, procrastinate some work that is due tomorrow, paying bills, trying to fit in, and grasping the last bit of the day before the next one.

We all have insecurities about being alone, insecurities that leave you feeling empty, overwhelmed, sad and scared, but why?! You always have your best friend, the beach. Show up for yourself and show up alone. The beach will be there to greet you with a sun kissed nose, sandy toes, salty air, and a happy soul.
