I am in Cabo San Lucas, Mexico for a few weeks visiting friends and family, as well as getting some work done. I get up early in the morning to work for 4 hours and then head to the beach for the day. Yesterday I was watching as this very small little boy played in the waves. His family had come down to the beach for their Sunday Family Breakfast and the boy really wanted to swim. So off went his clothes and into the sea he went. Since he was so small, the waves, even though they were small also, easily knocked him down.
After a while he came running back up the beach shivering and covered in goosebumps. The Father wrapped him in a towel and plopped him in the sand and walked away. The little boy called after his Father, but the small voice was lost in the sounds of the beach. He hunkered down in his towel and looked out to the sea.
It made me think. How often do we get so wrapped up in our problems and feel alone? It is easy to get caught up in what is not working and feel isolated despite the fact that we are surrounded by others. At times we can let our worries bind us so that we feel as if we can’t move forward.
The little boy sat on the beach watching the other people as they enjoyed the beach, forgetting that he had been calling his Father. Once he warmed up, he tossed off the towel and ran smiling back into the cold water to play.
A great reminder that we can take a time out, re-group, but it is up to us to toss that towel off! So if you find yourself feeling alone with your problems, know that you can find a solution and this too will pass.
