Dreaming of paradise [while living in one].

The grass is always greener on the other side. Even though this might be the most cliche statement of all statements ever made in the history of all time, it is true nonetheless. Something is built so deep down into our psyche that always makes us crave something else. But at the same time it is so easy to become blind towards what you have, where you are, in the ever eternal strive for the next big thing. Or maybe it is just me? Always thinking and planning ahead? It is my ridiculous need for control, to always know what is going to happen and when, it is a handy trait when trying to achieve something or reach a goal but sometimes, on an everyday basis it can get a little too much.

So sometimes I am dreaming about Fiji and Bora Bora and all the islands and countries and places I want to visit and here I am already living in paradise! It is easy to forget that when you contemplate the great questions of life, the future, where we will be and what we will do in one year. But some days it is nice to just relax and enjoy where we are without having a worry or bother in the world. Which is exactly what I did the other day, went down to Manly Beach Wharfside with the little one. Just to let go of all the must-do’s and stress about the future and…. live life.
