It’s easy for me to go to Fire Island “with all my heart.” It’s my favorite place in the world. (This photo was taken in the town of Ocean Beach.) I’ve rode the ferry and spent the day there with my family nearly every weekend since I was a little girl. Being by the water, away from the mainland, I feel relaxed and free.
The idea with this quote is that if you and I can carry over the way we feel in our favorite places (peaceful, jubilant) to our everyday activities, it will heighten them and give them more meaning. Or at least make them more bearable. It’s bringing a bit of childish excitement and wonder to each day. That’s how I see it anyway!
This is my Monday Mantra for the week. I hope it helps you make the most of your week too!
