Day 117

This was one of those days that was hard to put into words. This week I have been feeling uneasy. I have been second guessing myself and feeling insecure at times. I guess it is just where I am at. Sometimes you just have to go with the feelings that come. It does make me feel down though. I feel like I don’t know what I am doing with my life. I question everything. I start to wonder what I really want to do. I have had a few times where I have cried this week. I needed to let it out.

I went to my Pilates class in the morning feeling a bit down and left feeling so full of energy. I decided to go and visit my Pop whom lives around the corner from me on the harbour. My Uncle was there and we decided on a whim to go for a Kayak in the harbour. Greg came along too. We walked down the back of my Pops and launched our Kayaks into the water. I felt so free being on the water. There was so many jellyfish and fish swimming beneath me as I paddled through the water. There were beautiful iris’s flying around from mangrove to mangrove. We decided to paddle across the harbour and an hour later we made it to a little beach. I pulled up first and jumped out of my kayak. I look up and there is a little while butterfly fluttering around me. I know its Hamish. Saying hey mum keep having fun. It took Greg another 10 minutes to make it along to the beach.

Three hours later and we made it back to my Pops. We jumped out of the kayaks in the mangroves and shallow waters as the tide had gone out.  A few steps later I fell into a huge mud pit. It went all the way up to my thighs. I screamed thinking that I was just going to keep going down into the mud. I pulled myself out and my legs were covered in thick mud. All I could do was laugh. Greg was about fifty metres away and he thought something had bitten me! I felt so good after our little adventure. It reminded me that we need to go on more adventures like this. I love being outdoors and exploring new places. I love the feeling of connecting with nature.

Hamish thank you for guiding me to have more adventures everyday.
