RECONNECT WITH THE NATURE

Paper works piled up in the table, excel sheets full of numbers, and when I looked in the vast mirror, I saw the a different person of me with a puffy skin under my eye. Then I realized there and then that I badly need a break.  Break from beating the deadlines, rest from performance at work, and be reconnected back to the nature for at least a day.

Next early morning I packed my things inside the bag and headed to the east.  After an hour , I reached the place where I wanted to unwind.  Nothing beats the gently ebb sound of the sea and is like a tingling sweet sound to my ears. The air was salty that you can taste it when you inhale.  As the sun shines, I can see the white sand glitters as it stretched out in the horizon.

Slowly, I took out my gears and plunged into the crystalline sea.  Full of bubbles engulfed me and blurbing of water covered my ears as I immersed into see though film of another world.  The coolness of salt water surrounds my face, then down to my whole body resulting the energy level to boost up.

A couple of frog kicks propelled me towards the enchanted coral reef lodged solidly at the seafloor.  Looking though my crystal clear mask, I saw the breath – taking view of the underwater world. Another dimension, the reef was a like a fairyland and it was a pure aesthetic scenery.I was in awe.

Amazed, how the vibrant colored fishes swam along with the current and hit the dance floor of the colorful coral garden.  Just observing the sea anemone danced along the water, I felt relaxed and my mind turn into a calmer mood. When I turned my head to the right side, I saw marvelous thin and fat colorful starfishes moving harmoniously with their tubes feet in the seabed. I was engulfed the beauty of mother nature that never realized that time passed by so quickly.

Off in the distance I saw the sun began to set in a unhurried fashion.  The colors swirl together in a muddled mass across the sky and witnessed how the sun dipped into a pool of orange color sky, highlighting the best moment of transitioning from day to night.

The day ended with pure bond with nature.  It does not need to be extravagant but what was important was for me was to recharge my internal battery to prevent emotionally burn out and to be back on track and can focus better.
