can calm itself,
so can you.

Last month my film was a tribute to showcase the way I feel when my girls are away from me. It’s no secret that I’m currently separated from my soon to be ex-husband and I’m in the thick of all the ebbs and flows that come with this emotional process.
This month I wanted to push a bit outside of my comfort zone and create a film that was representative of what I’d like to begin doing with my new found time while they’re gone for almost 46 hours.
I’ve always loved the beach. Luckily I live on an island, a long one to be frank. My home is about 10 minutes away from a body of water and this beach is a hidden gem that I like to sneak away to when I can.
It’s a shame that I live relatively close to at least a dozen beaches yet I hardly have the time to enjoy any of them. That needs to change.
Last year I made a promise to myself to spend at least 30min in the sand every morning after dropping my kids off at school. THAT NEVER HAPPENED.
After creating this film, and journaling my thoughts about it, I’ve been making a conscious effort to visit more often than not.
I’ve been there 3x’s this month so that’s a start…
