I went and relaxed at Central Park after I got off to take some time to center myself. I do find that a lot of my time outside the office is either spent at Central or some other park in the city. I just find comfort in nature I guess. With so much always whirling around me in the city, it's important to find the peace within myself that I'm familiar with surrounded by grass, trees, and animals. I laid in the grass and just got a chance to write in my new free writing journal I bought while here in NYC. I've found myself writing more than ever and struggling to document fast enough all of my changing feelings and emotions. I don't want them to slip away undocumented and unremembered.
This past weekend I went to Rockaway Beach for the second time this summer and it was BEYOND lovely. Being from Ohio and beaches being fairly non-existent it's just such a treat for me...I'm hoping I can pop by again this coming weekend! This poor, pale skin of mine needs a little shimmer before the summer comes to a close. x
Things have been just well lately. I'm satisfied. Or feel satisfied in this moment relaxing here in bed at the end of a long, hot day. Maybe tomorrow might be a different feeling: but for now I'll cherish this one.
With much love, Lauren.
