Choose it . . .



Today in my Beyond Layers class, Kim asks, "Where do you find peace?"

Oh, a question that I don't have to hesitate on, or do I?
My immediate response is, of course . . . at the beach!

  I could live there, on the beach falling asleep to the crashing waves and the sea breeze.
It's a place where I feel quiet, and still, and thoughtful.
And it's a place where my worries seem to melt away.

But what makes the beach, and the experience of the ocean so different.
Is is really where I find peace, or is it just simply where I allow myself to feel peaceful.
And is peace something you can even find?
Because if it is something you can find then it should also be something you can seek.

Which brings me to the thought that peace is a choice we make, and why sometimes we are at war
with each other and ourselves.

I too am the most peaceful when I'm walking along a sandy shoreline listening to the waves crashing and hearing the seagulls cry. It's as though everything that's bothering me momentarily falls away and I feel lighter and brighter somehow. You ask some interesting questions though. Off to check out your guest post.

I agree, Kim, the beach is my peaceful spot as well. I only wish I could get there more often! Your path to the beach is simply gorgeous! Thank so much for being our guest at FOL today. Hope to see you there again soon.

Beautiful photo! I love the beach as well. We live thousands of miles away, but the drive is always so worth it!

I am totally with you Kim...except it is the SHORE :)

What beautiful colors... and the texture is fantastic! Great photo! I, too, wish I was there! Although it makes me a little itchy at the thought! ha

Beautiful image! If I were near a beach that would be my peaceful place. Since I'm not, I find peace in my swing under a beautiful oak tree!!

Kim - what a thoughtful post - to think about the fact that we can seek our own internal peace, wherever we happen to be. Lovely image!

Gina @ Gigi Marie Photography said...

YES- me too! I dream of the day when we can get back to living at the beach- falling asleep to the sound of the waves.

I love the beach! (I grew up on there).
I also love the countryside. Both places are where I go to find peace.
