se·ren·i·ty [səˈrenədē]: the state of being calm, peaceful, and untroubled.
That was my exact feeling being amongst the rolling waves and cool breeze of the ocean. I’m not sure what it is but the water just does something to me. To peacefully be in your thoughts is needed and I’m so glad I was able to experience it. What does my future hold? How can I fine tune my path and push the envelope? What are strengths and downfalls and how can I actively improve them? All these questions crossed my mind as the grains of sand pushed through my toes approaching the shoreline. I watch as my counterparts squealed at the bite of the frigid water and reflected on the simplicity of nature and how it can bring tranquility. Looks like my next major move will be to the golden state...food for thought.
