The beach…

Standard

I have an indescribable connection to the ocean, a great lake even a babbling brook.  It is where I can breathe life into my thoughts and my soul with just one breath.  I must have been a mermaid in a past life! Spring is here in our part of the world and we were so blessed to enjoy 16 degrees Celsius with warm sunshine today!  I recently took this picture and the warm sunshine today reminded me that summer is just around the corner and will be here before we know it! Days at the beach, in the water and having such a wonderful carefree time! In an effort to stop myself from rushing through every day and enjoy the moment that is spring, I sat on my front porch with the sun shining on my face and meditated for half an hour.  It was so warm and when I opened my eyes I could have sworn I saw clouds smiling. I don’t remember the last time I felt so alive and so full of energy! Life is so beautiful, happy and laughing!

As an after note, I am challenging myself to blog something that makes me happy and laughing every day for 30 days!  🙂

About Irene Savakis

I am a fun-loving mama of 4 amazing kidlets and I am on a mission to find something that makes me happy or brings me joy every day and to share that with you! Incidentally, the title of the blog came from my oldest daughter when she was almost 3. It had been many sleepless nights and 3 out of 4 in diapers was taking its toll. She cradled my face in her little hands and asked: “Mamma, are you happy and laughing?”. Needless to say, that expression has stuck and we still use it today, over 10 years later. On a personal note, I love to write, paint and scrapbook…I love being creative. It is the one place where I can journey into myself and find peace in my world. I come back rejuvenated. Incidentally, Irene is of Greek origin meaning peace…funny, I am most happy when I have peace in my heart and all around me. Thanks for stopping by…
