*Semi-Rant Thing Warning*
well since i finally can drive and i have a car, today i completed what i have been trying to do for years now- going to the beach before 6 AM. sure, during the winter my friends and i have the beach all to ourselves, but when it's under 40 degrees, it's pretty hard to just relax and lay out.
so today i took the trip by myself at 5:15 am, and i just sat on the sand by myself for about an hour. if someone else told me that they did this, i would say that it was a waste of time. what i found out, however, is that sometimes you need total isolation and loneliness, to really be brought back together with everything. whether it's family, friends, experiences, or whatever. i really felt that i mentally accomplished more doing nothing by myself on the beach than i would doing anything else. i didn't try to think of anything or anyone, i didn't try to do anything. i just sat, and i felt comforted.
now i know not many of you seem to have access to this type of beach, but i really suggest finding a place that you might normally go to, whether it's a park or mountain or something, and find a time to go alone when no one else is there. it probably seems dumb and useless unless you're really 'soul searching' or something, but if you have time i would definately do it. everyone always says how you just have to slow down and enjoy life, but that thought often gets to the back of everyone's minds, and they get back to the same old fast paced life.
ok that's enough of my rant, but really, find time to be alone and just enjoy the best thing you have right now- life
