Sometimes life gets extremely challenging, and we might just need a mental break from the normal, but toxic events in life. Have you ever taken a quiet moment alone to consider what a “perfect day” would look like for you? If you have, that is wonderful and what would this day look like? If you have not thought about this, now might be a great time to try it out. I am going to ask you to take 10 to 15 minutes to take this journey with me because it might be rather fun and exciting. Considering I am requesting your input, I will share what my “perfect day” would be for me.
Sometimes it is hard to imagine a “perfect day”, especially after this past year being a combination of chaos, sadness, stress, consistent challenges, and anything else that could describe negative. I guess with everything 2020 and some of 2021 provoked, I thought it would be a relief and fun to daydream because some daydreams can become our reality if we want it bad enough and try a little harder.
A “perfect day” for me would start by waking up in an ocean-front hotel room and witnessing the sun start to rise before providing a beautiful blue-sky day with the sun shining bright. The beach has always been the happiest place for me because there is nothing the ocean breeze and waves crashing down cannot make better. I do not think there is anything better than walking out on a balcony that overlooks the ocean first thing in the morning. It is something between the sun radiating over the gleaming ocean, while the seagulls dance with each other overhead that clears the mind and cleanses the soul.
After spending time rejuvenating and admiring the ocean scenery with my husband, enjoying a nice breakfast or lunch depending on the time near the ocean would be the next step in the day. We have all heard that breakfast is the most important meal of the day, but on my “perfect day”, I would not want to be forced to rush to make it anywhere before breakfast is over. One great thing about being at the beach is nothing should ever be rushed or forced as it is a time to just relax and enjoy life.
Once either breakfast or lunch is finished, I would want to spend several hours relaxing on the beach. I am terrified of sharks and jellyfish, but still love to kick my feet around in the ocean water. It is always so hot during the summer months in the south, so refreshing in the water helps to not become too overheated, especially considering the heat can cause some awful MS issues that I do not want to deal with on my “perfect day”.
As the daytime turns to evening, I would want to return to the hotel room to get cleaned up and wash away the summer heat. It is always nice to take a break from the sun and take a cool shower and get ready for a nice dinner at a restaurant on the ocean. There is always an amazing breeze near the ocean, so worrying too much about my hair is never a factor because it does not matter at all. It is always fun to get dressed up in a pretty summer dress to enjoy dinner with my husband.
After dinner, I enjoy taking a short walk down the beach and watching the sun as it sets for the day and the moon make its way up in the sky. I find the ocean sky peaceful and full of wonder. It is a great feeling to have watched the sun start to rise, then watch it set as and the moon begins to rise above. I am fascinated by the colors of the sky and love seeing as many colors as I can in one day!
Now that I have explained what my “perfect day” would look like, what would your “perfect day” be? This can be anything your heart desires! I am looking forward to reading about your “perfect day” because I think this will be interesting to learn. Some ideas might be the same or like others, but some might be vastly different, which is where things can get interesting.
