On My Way to a Joyful Place…the Beach
Ever since I left the West Coast months ago, I have not gotten a chance to visit the beach. I’m so excited to take a drive down to Galveston.
The Joy and Wellbeing at the Beach
Growing up, we didn’t go to the beach very often. But when we did I remember having a blast swimming in the ocean and jumping as each wave approached.
It wasn’t until much later in my adult life that I started visiting the beach weekly when I lived in Portland.
Each time I took off my shoes and felt the san between my toes, I felt an instant calmness, peace, and connection with the present moment.
Studies have shown that visiting the beach is good for our health.
The Joy and Beauty I Experienced at the Oregon Coast
As a photographer, I witnessed the beauty where the earth, water, clouds, and light meet.
An no matter how many times I returned to the exact same spot, what I experienced was completely different from the previous time.
I know for me, it is a place of much joy.
