Getting my confidence back with a little 'me' time by the beach.
A little 'me' time by the beach.
Last weekend, I took myself off to Brighton for a bit of 'me' time. I adore being by the sea - the sound of the waves is something that is so relaxing and therapeutic to me that it's most definitely a life goal of mine to end up living by the sea one day.
I uhhmed-and-ahhed about going for the whole weekend by myself for a while, as I was a little worried about spending so much time on my own and how much time I would have to overthink everything. But I totally surprised myself and I had the best time.
I spent both Saturday and Sunday just doing all of my favourite things, having to please and answer to no one but myself and it was pure bliss. I sat on the beach for hours, just watching, listening and being mesmerised by the waves hittng the pebble beach. I simply sat and read my book in the sunshine. I took myself for brunch and for coffee at regular intervals, as well as walking around The Lanes and discovering some of the loveliest independent shops and cafes.
