Remembering my Happy Place
I vividly remember the warm summer day when I visited this windswept beach with my husband. It was late morning, the white sun rose in a giant arch in the hazy blue sky as distant storm clouds silently crept towards the sea from the cool green mountains. On this day I imagined I was on a beach in the Hamptons, with long stretches of pale sand and faded beach grass, whipping in the coastal breeze. We ran along the beach like carefree teenagers, kicking sea water, kissing and posing for silly photos without a care in the world.
On this remarkable day I was a million miles from where I find myself now, packing every last memory neatly away into quiet little corners of my mind as I face new challenges over the coming weeks. University Exams. Illness. Work Commitments. The absence of my husband, who will be overseas for another two weeks. Loneliness.
When I feel the early subtle cues for anxiety, sadness and stress I will remember this place, a place I fell in love with my husband all over again. A place for summer memories.
