Day 110: Falling In Love

Falling In Love

I’m falling in love.

I’m falling in love with the sensation of wet ocean sand squishing between my toes and lathering the soles of my feet.

I’m falling in love with my feet; how my little toe is smaller than his neighbor, how my feet are the perfect size and perfect shape.

I’m falling in love with floating my entire body in the healing, salt-rich sea, kicking and splashing my way from beachside to beachside.

I’m falling in love with my body: the softness of my skin, the curves, the beautiful imperfections that make me entirely me.

I’m falling in love with fruity-drinks with rum and fancy umbrellas, with the foam that tickles my lips and the buzz that tickles my view.

I’m falling in love with my view, in how I see the world, how I see people, and how my heart is big enough to embrace the entirety of the universe.

I’m falling in love with crème brulee served in minature pineapple-bowls, and garnished with large juicy strawberries and fresh whipped cream.

I’m falling in love with the little girl in me who fancies sweet treats and surprises, who wants to share her treats with a stranger, who wants to tell everyone she meets about tiny pineapple bowls.

I’m falling in love with the sun setting over the ocean while the wind blows through my blonde-streaked, windblown hair.

I’m falling in love with my capacity to love nature, the depth of my awe, the appreciation of all glorious works of this planet.

I’m falling in love with hiking down ocean cliffs to the sound of the roaring waves and wading in the warm natural sea pools with hundreds of little fish.

I’m falling in love with my courage to try new things and my appreciation of my bravery and risk taking.

I’m falling in love with catching up with my old friends, I adore, and learning about new friends, I adore.

I’m falling in love with my personality, the way I truly love people, and hold them daily in my heart and thoughts.

I’m falling in love with my potential, with my options, and with opportunity.

I’m falling in love with my skillset to seek out whatever I dream.

I’m falling in love with my family, with their humor, with their wit, with their clever observations and deep sensitivity to life and their environment.

I’m falling in love with my mothering, with all that I’ve dedicated and given without second-thought or need.

I’m falling in love with my eyes and their depth, in what they have seen and saved in silence, and what they have seen, and shared in truth.

I’m falling in love with every inch of me and every inch of my life. I am blessed. I am gifted. And I am me.

 Sometimes I think I make my new friends feel like the sheep in the picture above!

    Speaking of the hugging picture…I feel like a lion watching from a distance people who are potential friends, after hiding, peering, slowly walking toward them I pounce and hug them, and squeeze them, and love them forever! They usually run when they squirm out of my grip. Lol! I’m kidding! Kind of. 🙂

    Lovely happy feeling post! Thank you for sharing your loveliness with us. Big smiles blowing bubbles your way. 😀
