My youngest has been asking me all summer to go to the beach. The child wants to go to the beach ALL THE TIME. She's a beach baby for sure.
This summer didn't work out as I hoped...I got pulled in a lot of directions and...well...you know, life and all it's stresses pulled.
I took a few days off this week and my youngest asked if we could go to the beach "reeeeeally" early. And she meant early...like sunrise early. As much as I wanted to sleep in, I thought "say yes." So I did...and we went...and it was glorious.
My lesson...try to say yes more often to enjoying moments.
(Even if it means getting up before the sun.)
