It’s good for you
Monday, 21 July 2008
I spent much of the day running on my own at the base of the cliffs along the beach. The NW wind , howling down my back, gently pushing me down the beach. Gulls and Cormorants effortlessly gliding into the wind, hanging as if they were puppets on a mobile. The low tide was slowly pushing back, the waves swishing up the sand releasing huge blobs of storm foam which is quickly blown across my path like powder snow.
I love the coast, and the ever changing and evolving landscape, where nothing is a constant. Stopping I look back at my tracks marking my route along the base of the cliff. As the sea surges a wave spews forward, within seconds every trace of mine is erased and the beach returns to its original pristine state. Change is such an important ingredient in ones life, enabling you to keep evolving and enhancing your life – so often one fights change, it’s sometimes more difficult to go through the thought of having to change than accept change itself.
As I journey along our coast, I am staring change in the face, but with positively, looking at how things have changed over the years, aware that there are problems and not everything one sees and hears is what I would like to see, but there is so much good going on around me , it gives me such hope in the future of this country
Hope – is the belief in a positive outcome related to events and circumstances in ones life, believing that a better and more positive outcome is possible even though there is some evidence to the contrary
