California is my reset button. I grew up within walking distance of the beach in Santa Barbara and even though we moved away when I was young going home to visit was always a top priority. Twenty years later and this still rings true. Whenever I'm felling confused and stressed out all it takes is a day at the beach to clear my head. And that is something I've been very much in need of lately.
I've been essentially radio silent for a few months now. The silence here has been a stark contrast to the chaos of my mind. Thankfully with a vacation earlier this month, a day at the beach last week, and a whole lot of prayer I'm feeling centered again. Ready to get back to the things I love. Ready to feel that spark of passion again. Ready to find my voice. It's time. There's just something about that salty air and warm sand that reminds me of who I am.
Do you have a reset button? Somewhere that you go to clear your mind and be reminded of what's really important? I think we all need a place like that. It's far to easy to get swept up in life and look back and wonder where the year has gone.
