Sea Isle City Day 7: The Rising Of The Sun
I woke up at 5:20 am and I am so glad I did because I was able to catch the sunrise this morning. It was strikingly beautiful. I am blue-green color blind so this may not be an accurate description of the sky, but it looked almost golden to me. It was simply breathtaking. The sunrise for today was around 5:33 am. I woke up at an amazing time. I wanted to catch the sunrise before I left and we are leaving today, (actually we just left at 12:30ish) so it was absolutely perfect.
Looking at the stunning sky this morning made me forget all the bad that happened while I was on vacation. It made me forgot about the negativity that I was feeling last night. Today is a new day; a fresh start. I was reminding myself of that this morning.
When everyone else is having a bad day I tell them it’s just that, a bad day. So yesterday I had to remind myself of that and I took my own advice and just kept repeating that, “It’s just a bad day. Tomorrow is a new day. Things will be better.” And sure enough, today has been so much better. The day is still young, but I am going to try to keep the positivity flowing.
This coming week we have to start packing again. But this time it isn’t for vacation; it’s because we are moving into a place that has a bit more room. I am going to be getting my own room to have as an office. I am so excited. I am just not looking forward to the moving process itself. We move July 1st.
There is a lot of negativity associated with our current apartment. A lot of fights and bad memories. I am pretty thrilled to be getting out of there. Now, here’s to hoping tha5 nothing goes wrong in the meantime. Even though I am going to try to remain positive, I am weary about using the word “hope” due to the fact that things seem to go wrong every time I use that word. I am going to pray that things go right.
According to our GPS we will arrive home around 3:16 pm. I must admit, I am feeling a bit homesick. And I miss my cat Buddy. My best friend has been checking up on him while we’ve been gone. Despite everything, I am glad his parents invited me along. I had some amazing moments such as walking on the beach with my boyfriend while the sun was setting and basically being able to whip balls at these clowns things. I think those have been my most prized and cherishable moments.
Until Next Time…
