The beach! If you watch TV at all you have probably seen the Corona (beer - not me) commercials that encourage you to find your beach. A beach vacation can be a beautiful, relaxing escape from your day to day life. But, who says you can't feel this way every moment and every day. When you are centered in the present moment and focus on the things directly in you face you are at the right place at the right time. Right now. This is your beach. Let go of worries about the past and the future and create that space for calm and joy right now. In the present moment it does not matter what anyone thinks of you or expects from you. Being totally yourself is easy. In this space you become the calm in the storm. Holding this place for yourself and others can be tricky, especially not being in the habit of doing it. The more you are here at this beach though, the easier it becomes. Yes, sometimes it rains at the beach. When you see the rain as food for growth, the difficult things become easier. As you do this, it also becomes easier for those around you. Hold that feeling of the sun shining on your face and the sound of the waves daily, moment by moment. Practice makes perfect. Soon it will feel easy.
