Everyone will always have some sort of opinion when it comes to Los Angeles (whether you live here or not), and the 4.7 magnitude earthquake this morning was just a reminder that it can be a shaky place.
Even our news anchors still get a little rattled.
The thing is, that no matter where you live, life can get a little wobbly. I suggest you take every little jitter and unsettling jolt one step at a time. My weekend was a good example of how one should always press the pause button and take a moment to BREATHE!
Here are a few points to remind all of you to chill out, calm down and take a road trip when life gets rocky.
When feeling stressed. Hit the beach!
That is exactly what my boyfriend and I did this weekend along with our gang of friends. A drive down to Manhattan Beach was just what the doctor ordered so we packed up the car and got-outta-Dodge!
Yes. It did take awhile to get there. Everyone in LA seemed to have the same idea as us.
Which brings me to my next point!
After any long waiting period, there is always going to be a fabulous end point (or an ocean in our case!). Can you see it??
Let me get a little closer for ya.
Make sure to eat! Your brain operates better when you fill up that tummy (with good food!). We stopped at Lemonade to cure our “hangryness” before landing a spot in the sand.
Sit still and do absolutely nothing! Relax and enjoy your surroundings.
Can we talk about this picture? Beyond gorge!
Don’t forget to stop and observe because you never know what you will see or who you will meet!
Check out the new friend I made in Manhattan Beach while walking through the neighborhood. I love him! He totally made my day.
Always be grateful to have friends (and a cute boyfriend!).
The best kind of friends are the ones you can chill on the beach with, never saying a word (until they start yelling at you to stop taking so many pictures! Ha!). By the way, this is my boyfriend, Nick, catching some rays. Total fox.
Life always works itself out even during the bumpy times so just BE PATIENT!
