I love being able to walk the boardwalk along the beach. There's a spot near Red Rock Park where I can take a little break and do a few sun salutes before continuing on. It's here that I can observe the ocean, watch the waves gently roll in and out. I love the warmth of the sun - the energy that it represents.
Things have changed for me, though. I have recently had surgery for skin cancer. This means taking more precautions when spending time outdoors. It's ironic that I just moved to the beach where I could simply skip outside and go for a walk and do some yoga. Not so anymore! I must now lather myself in sunscreen - and wear a wide-brimmed hat. I'm not complaining, though. It could have been so much worse. And, thankfully, I can still get the benefits of spending time in the sunshine. But, I need to be more mindful about my surroundings. I really don't like to be "preachy" but please, take heed. The sun is powerful - as we know. Respect it - honor it - but do the same and respect and honor yourself.
