I find it odd there are so many spas you can go to that claim to "rejuvenate your soul". When in fact they are rejuvenating your muscles, your skin, your physical body and sometimes even your mental state of mind, but they do not rejuvenate the soul. I always find the best way to rejuvenate the soul is to get out in to nature and take away the distractions.
We have been so caught up in so many things lately that we really wanted a vacation, but when we sat down and thought about it we realized we just needed some soul rejuvenation. We needed some unconditional, unplugged time together in nature. We took an entire weekend and both took off from work. We took off from friends and family and we decided to spend time together, just the three of us in nature. We drove out to the beach on Saturday and played in the sand and surf. We had dinner on the deck at The Oceanic even through the wind because it was beautiful to watch the seagulls and pelicans fly around the beach. Nothing was better than enjoying an outside meal with my family on the beach and watching my son yell "bird!" as he points at a bunch of pelicans that fly over his head and stuffs another piece of calamari in his mouth. We had a blast walking on the beach and collecting some shells and stones. I always keep a couple of each and put them in a couple jars we have. Xavier loves the beach and water and we had a blast running away from the waves.
Sunday, we stayed more low key and stayed home and played outside all day just the three of us. We brought out drinks and snacks, we laughed and played games all day. We were able to recharge and rejuvenate our soul. We were able to be in the moment and to feel everything and everyone around us.
Be yourself, be with your family and enjoy nature. No matter what your troubles are the more you do this the more you will come to realize that they are not the big picture. I hope you all were able to rejuvenate your souls this past weekend and if not there is always tomorrow!
