My goodness, the summer is just flying by!
After a long wait, the sunshine is finally here on the west coast, and it’s been a blissful blur of long walks, patios, and picnics. I’ve been keeping myself busy building beautiful sun-dappled memories with my loved ones, and breathing in the fresh coastal air.
I feel so blessed to live in this beautiful province of British Columbia. It truly is one of the most beautiful places on earth, and as we prepare to celebrate British Columbia Day this weekend, I’m reminded of all the ways in which it inspires me and the work that I do.
The rich tapestry of colourful wildflowers and towering forests, the deep, endless blue of the ocean, and the eternal mirror of the sky are just a few of the many elements that make this such a breathtakingly beautiful place to live. Sometimes, I wish we could keep it a secret, but today I’m sharing it with all of you.
There is peace and meaning to be found in quiet reflection, and in slowing down to appreciate the beauty that surrounds us. Whatever else may be happening, this world and our existence in it is a miracle, and I’m reminded of that whenever I stop to stare out at the ocean, glittering like a jewel under the summer sun.
Find the beauty in life, and take a moment to truly appreciate it, whether that’s through meditation, hiking, or embroidery. The best things in life are worth your time.
