Back from my mini vacation!

Sometimes a few days away can help you to recharge. It rained almost every day (of course not the day we drove down - well didn't rain till we got there and then coming home today it was clear). But yesterday was sunny and we got to the beach for the day....it was a really beautiful day too! On the rainy days we headed out for walks when the rain let up so I got some exercise. Actually a LOT of exercise because we walked quite a bit... easy to do on when at the beach. We also went out dancing two nights! I didn't mind the weather..I always have fun with my daughter and my good friends! Laughter helps the soul....and we did quite a bit of laughing!
I came home to the same problems I left but with a completely different attitude. I'm recharged.. I feel empowered again. I've been through too much to cave at this point. While I was standing by the ocean yesterday with my feet in the water I felt renewed energy..(we couldn't go in deeper because the water was just too rough from the storms so the red flags were up). Oh.... on Wednesday afternoon after we arrived and unpacked our things...it was soo stormy... we couldn't go anywhere. The rain was just pouring down...almost scary. We tried to head out to the grocery store for some supplies but the streets were flooded and we had to turn back. Was a bit frightening. After the storms stopped we took a walk by the beach and saw a rainbow in the sky, over the ocean. It was beautiful!!! I've never seen a rainbow over the ocean even though I've seen many, especially lately, at home. I'm just going to think of it as a sign that wonderful things are going to come my way! lolol.
I have much to do over the next few days to get my life headed back in a positive direction....the only direction I'm willing to go. I know it won't happen overnight..but I'm going to keep taking those small steps to move forward....once again (Spark People taught me that!) Looking back I see how far I've come... and I think I understand why I had to experience the things I did. I'm not sure if it made me stronger or just opened my eyes to the inner strength I've always had but was unaware of? It doesn't matter.... I'm feeling more comfortable with being ME.... and this is exactly where I want to be at this time!
Keep Sparking...it works!!!
