The Perfect Day

A few days ago, I experienced a day I think that will stay in my mind forever. You see, I thought I had a perfect day but after experiencing this one, I realized that nothing could top it. My best friend and I decided to go on a walk at 4am and around 7am, we went to the beach. Sitting there on the rocks by the shore and just watching the waves flow gently, I had a moment of clarity. I lost my worries for that moment as we just sat in silence and took in the beauty that surrounded us. That is what life is about, isn’t it?
