This spring break we took a few days to spend at the beach with a few other families here on the Oregon coast. We were given one glorious day of amazing sunshine and warmth, something not typical of the Oregon coast. The winds were no more than a slight breeze and we enjoyed a long time with the kids on the beach and took walks as well as wandered into town for an ice cream cone and to look around the shops a bit. This day was truly a gift and I found myself getting outside to enjoy it every possible moment that I could. Each moment of sunshine was very precious and I knew that was something I really wanted to soak in.
Time spent with loved ones soaking in the moments is something I really cherish and hold onto. I do have a very strong work ethic and produce a lot of things in my work life and at home, however I feel that its very important to be aware of each moment of the day that we possibly can and to stop an acknowledge how amazing that moment is.
I feel so fortunate that I can create hours in which I spend with my son and my family and I can be in those moments with them. I can get caught up in "getting things done." so many times, but on this beach trip and during specific moments of my day I am ALL IN. I am just in that moment, in that activity and taking it all in. It's like creating a beautiful "mind movie" that I can look back on. I'll remember that sunny day at the beach in March of 2018 and have something beautiful to hold on to.
As next week is my soft opening week and I'll be working full time hours at the coffee shop (6am-2pm) I'll cherish the moment even more. I made it a priority to have afternoons still with my son so that we can still have our Wednesday "special snack" out together and more. These years are comprised of many small daily moments and I want to capture as many of those as I can.
What are the moments that you treasure, create and hold onto? I'd love to hear from you! Feel free to comment below or email me at:
