I love friends that you can just be yourself with friends that you can let your guard down and just be you. I love friends you can chat about anything, where it is okay to be vulnerable.
Yesterday I went and had a retreat with a lovely friend and mentor. I had been looking forward to the catch up with her since I booked the retreat, a few weeks ago.
I drove to catch up with her listening to worship music and singing along.
As I was driving I was thinking about the word invest and rest.
It was so good to see my friend again and of course we starting talking over coffee. Yes love my coffee.
I was saying that last year was probably one of the first years in a long time that I hadn’t gone away or hadn’t gone on a plane anywhere.
So as we talked drank coffee and discussed things, the theme- Adventure came up.
I needed to have Adventure in my life and to treat myself to new experiences and just to do nice things for myself.
I don’t know about you but I am not very good at giving myself permission to……………………………………(whatever it may be).
After we spoke for a while I went to the beach and had a swim, I hadn’t done that in a while and it was so nice.
I sat on the beach watching the waves splashing into the shore. I noticed people snorkelling, people fishing and people kitesurfing. I sat on the beach and thought about the last few months, I thought about what I hadn’t been doing that somehow I had lost my adventurous self.
I don’t know about you but there is something about sitting near water which is calming and where I can just sit to think and not feel distracted.
The retreat was just what I needed and an adventure list was created.
I am grateful to have friends that can speak into my life and can help me get perspective on things.
So Adventure Awaits.
What is something that you can do for yourself today?
Would love to hear your ideas?
Will share more soon.
