What inspires me, beach...

Real Estate Agent with RE/MAX Northwest.

I am writing this in response to the challenge of Carol Williams in her December Challenge 2018: What Inspires You?

Let the sea, set you free! unknown

What inspires me is an interesting question.

Paul S. Henderson, REALTOR®, RE/MAX Professionals, Harstine Island, Washington's preferred real estate Agent and Broker

I think one of the best things that inspires me is where I live and how I spend my mornings. I try to get up every morning before sunrise and walk down to the beach where I sit on the driest piece of driftwood I can find and think. The lapping waves and the calling gulls bring me peace and a positive thought process. I often share these pictures on my daily blog posts.

From time to time I am able to share my Beach with a curious grandchild or my wife on occasion.

I can sit there for hours and just think about my life; how's it is and what changes I would like to make. I guess that sounds rather boring; however, this just gives my life meaning and makes me very happy. I never leave the beach disappointed because the ocean is my friend and makes me whole.

Want to know what I like about the beach? When you consider that the waves have been lapping against the shore every few seconds since the beginning of time and will continue until the end of time. It makes our daily problems seem kind of insignificant.

Hi Paul- it doesn't sound boring to me at all!  I can spend hours walking along the beach and looking for shells or watching the birds. It's calming for me.

Hi Paul

Well the word BEACH drew me in immediately. I love what you had to say. Makes me wish I spent more time at the beach than I do, but I sure enjoy it and feel inspired and refreshed after spending time there, no matter when or how little!

Good morning Paul.  A wonderful way to begin the day.  Maybe sometime in the future, we can do this together.

Hi Paul,
"Let the sea set you free."  I love that!  The ocean is my happy place too.  That is so nice that you are able to walk to the beach every day and contemplate life. We love all the pictures you share with your daily inspiration.

The beach is my happy place too Paul. I prefer it to be warm and sunny but the rhythm of the waves is soothing no matter the temperature.

Paul, this is such a luxury for the soul - to be able to sit quietly, watch the sea and reflect. Beautiful photo.

Oh, one day, Paul, one day! I so hope to live by the water in retirement, if not sooner. There's something magical about the ocean and they sky, becoming one. It's the BEST place for pondering our thoughts, that's for sure!

Love your quote and, as always, your glorious photo!

Hi Paul, this so resonates with me as well.  I am a beach person - that is where I go to get grounded - there is so much energy there ... it fills me.  How wonderful that you get to say hello to the ocean every morning.

Went to North Myrtle Beach, SC recently.

The choppy weather prevented us from walking on the beach enjoyed by most.

Thanks for sharing.
