Finding Treasures at the Beach

Walks on the beach are often how I clear my head and at the same time get exercise. If I’m in a bad mood, the ocean air seems to take it all away.

It seems that I never leave the beach without finding treasures. Oftentimes, treasures are the smallest things that are meaningless to most people, but I have a habit of finding reasons and symbols behind everything.

For example, one day while I was in a crabby mood, I was walking along the beach and saw a broken crab shell in the shape of a heart. I laughed out loud, because I knew it was the Universe’s way of showing me love on a bad day. Another day I took a walk in an attempt to get rid of a headache.  I noticed a small orange toy that a child had left behind. It was an ugly little monster, much like my headache. Yes, the Universe has a way of making us laugh at ourselves.

During another little stroll I had been thinking about some things that needed my attention on figuring out how to deal with them when I came across this little creature. I thought it was so adorable and just one more way that reminded me to look at the softer side of life.

  1. I love this post! And I wish I could walk your beach too! 🙂 I loved the found items that have been lost/discarded. I too find meaning in them also, and there is some consolation to giving them attention again, after being lost/discarded. Great post!

      Thanks! It’s been raining a lot lately, but I’ve been meaning to go back. Now I am obsessed with finding things!
