I love hanging out in Malibu from time to time, the beach always makes me feel happy. For me, it’s the best place to rest, relax and reminisce about life. I can’t help but notice that increasingly I’m on my phone so while at the beach, I took time off from technology – from my iphone – to just enjoy everything, anything and get a fresh perspective. Looking out towards the ocean and up at the sky inspired me to reflect back on my life, from everything that’s happened to everything that I plan will happen and to really appreciate everything I have.
One of my favorite quotes by Earl Nightingale “Never give up on a dream just because of the time it will take to accomplish it. The time will pass anyway.” Life can get a little crazy sometimes and a couple hours by the ocean is sometimes the best remedy!
