My man and I escaped to Tofino for a late summer getaway. We spent 9 glorious days nestled in a rustic little cabin on a private island.
No electricity. No cell service. Nothing but the sound of the surf and hush of the daily fog that rolled in and out.
It took me 3 days to wind down into the quiet rhythm of this very special place. Not being able to ‘plug-in’ I realized how addicted I had become to my phone and social media.
Being present was my only option. I had to be in the stillness without distraction or escape. It was the greatest gift I had received in a long time, and brought me back to source…be it god, or the divine, or the universal energy that runs through all living things, and reminded me of the tremendous importance of being present to the life and abundance that is constantly being given to us is the simplest and purest forms.
I was reminded of what was real: the smell of the ocean and its changing tides, the birds that gather above our heads and sing, the wind in its magnificent, invisible dance. The exchange of eyes and smiles meeting.
I dare you. to ‘un-plug’. to step back in to the realness of life. to cherish the mundane. to remember your own breath. to walk with the birds and dance with the moon.
I dare you
