For me, paddleboading can be a purely magical experience. This week I got to experience one of those magical moments. The water was completely flat, glassy, crystal clear and calm, the ocean was filled with beautiful sea life, the wind was calm and the moon was full. It was perfect! I quickly remembered just how much I love paddleboarding and how grateful I am to live in a place where I can do things like this year round.
You see, two years ago (before my mom’s accident), I was out on the water every single week without fail. Then life flipped upside down and I just never got back into the habit. Well, I’m taking life by the horns and I’m changing that. Doing fun active activities makes me feel better physically and emotionally. Paddleboarding is probably at the top of that activity list for me. It makes me feel alive! Now I’m looking to add additional activities to this list; mountain bike trail riding and indoor rock climbing. More to come on that. In the meantime, I’ll be enjoying more time on the ocean.
