"Seeing" things a little differently
In Response to the daily post…
I have three hundred words to justify the existence of my favorite person, place, or thing. Failure to convince will result in it vanishing without a trace. Go!
All three of these categories apply for me, they are all one and the same. I will explain…
There is this place nestled in the southernmost region of Alabama called Dauphin Island. It is a piece of land that is a well known secret to the locals in our area. Barely into the Gulf of Mexico, there are no high rise condos or an over abundance of tourist. Since I was a child I have fond memories of crossing the big bridge onto the small island of beaches, boats, piers and some of the most gorgeous sunsets ever. This place gives me strength, dreams and relaxation.

My favorite person is me, I’ve come to realize that the only person to make me happy is myself. No one can even come close to filling that order. I’ve learned through years of bad relationships and experiences… thus the beach helps me to see and accept life as it is.
The thing, is getting in my car and driving to this place where I can cry, think, love, rejuvenate, laugh, forget, remember and refresh. I love this place and I don’t get there often enough, though it is only a thirty minute drive from my home. Routines and life often get in the way…thank you daily post for reminding me. I’ll be taking a trip there very soon!
