I don’t know if it’s because Mercury is in retrograde, or if it’s all just a crazy coincidence, but June was tough on me this year. And not just me – most of my friends and family have been dealing with their own never ending pile of problems and daily mishaps, which isn’t all that abnormal except for the severity and frequency of such happenings.
When it comes to stress that builds and builds like this, you have to find a way to cope. For me, I was really hoping my trip to the beach would help restore my sense of balance, but our weekend vacation wasn’t nearly long enough. Especially for all the big plans I had in mind: knitting and campfires in the sand, a long walk to the jetty, a good thrifting session in the little beach town we were passing through… so much to do, so little time.
On the bright side, the company was good, and we did manage a nighttime walk under an incredible blanket of stars. It might’ve been the best stargazing visibility I’ve ever had at the beach despite the artificial light sources nearby. The Oregon Coast is beautiful, even when the sun goes down.
Returning home was hard, and events ensued that were even harder, but I feel a little closer to my friends and family now because of it. And ultimately, home is my favorite place in the world to be, so I’m making the best of it, and hoping desperately for a more relaxing month ahead.
Anyone else have a crazy June? Mercury is officially out of retrograde starting tomorrow (July 2), so who knows? Maybe things will suddenly improve. ;-)
