We all need a break or getaway every now and then. It’s for our mental health. We just need the change of scenery to mix it up from the daily grind. Even if it’s just for a day, that trip away makes such a difference.
For me the beach is my happy place. The sounds of the waves, the feel of the sand in between my toes, the salty taste in the air. There’s something so relaxing and beautiful about the beach.
I am very lucky my in laws have a place in Cape May Court House and that they allow us to stay over. With surgery the end of next month this may be the only time we could get down this summer. It was also a much needed getaway after a very stressful year.
I wanted to relax and enjoy my time away and I did just that. I didn’t worry about my weight, my surgery or my return to work. I just focused on just being in the moment.
I had a wonderful time. We got beautiful weather and were able to get down to the beach every day. We went to the zoo, arcades, favorite stores in town, my favorite coffee shop, enjoyed lots of ice cream and splurged a bit on the kids and it was worth every minute.
We all need that change of scenery every now and then for our mental health. I know I needed it more than ever as I finish my chemo treatments and prepare for surgery which I am continuing to grow more nervous about. But for this long holiday weekend I didn’t worry about that, I just enjoyed being in my happy place and spending time with the family.
