I was hoping to share photos of my newly decorated and clean room today. I was planning to have it all ready with a new desk, new lamp and new succulent in the corner, but apparently the day had another thing planned.
I filled up 6 garbage bags today. Garbage bags filled with unwanted clothes, old beauty products and worn bags, shoes, and pyjamas. I never knew I had so much junk! and I also never realised how much dust had accumulated in the space where I spent most of my time.
I'm now sitting here with a Eucalyptus steamer up to my face hoping my nose will stop running and that I'll soon stop sneezing every 5 minutes.
Two steps forward, one step back. Don't you feel like life is full of that?
I feel it all the time. My baby steps are great and they are moving me forward but sometimes I feel like I'm not actually accomplishing anything and that every time I do accomplish something, something else gets in the way and I wind up on the couch with an army of used tissues around me.

So today, instead of the beautiful room I had imagined for myself, I am sharing images from my most recent trip to the beach. It's a place where I feel free and at peace. I don't know what it is but the ocean always calms me and makes me feel at ease, especially when I've been as busy as I have been.
I hope to find the right rhythm in my life soon, something like that of the ocean. Something with pattern, something reliable and yet something that isn't boring and consistent. The tide comes in and goes out each day. It washes up on the shore and then retreats back into itself. It's not always regular though and it has a mind of its own. I want to find that balance.
It will probably take me a few more steps forwards and backwards to get there though, and I hope you can be patient with me as I make my way along.
Happy weekend to you! I hope it's not as snotty as mine :) x
