When you find sea glass, it can be a wonderful opportunity to reconnect with your inner child, as did I when on that lockdown walk with my husband. It was a day when once again I experienced the world with a sense of wonder and curiosity.
Sea glass is a unique and beautiful material that is formed when pieces of glass are tumbled and smoothed by the ocean waves over time. It can come in a variety of colours, shapes, and sizes, and each piece is one-of-a-kind.
When you come across sea glass while walking along the beach, it can be like discovering a hidden treasure, in fact, you are!!! Your inner child may feel a sense of excitement and anticipation as you start to search for more pieces, eagerly scanning the sand for glimmers of colour.
As you collect sea glass, you may start to notice the intricacies of each piece - the way the light catches the colours, the way the edges are smoothed and rounded by the water… the frosted surface against your fingers.
You might find yourself marveling at the unique patterns and shapes that each piece has taken on and it’s purity ad you hold it up to the light.
This experience can help you tap into a sense of childlike wonder and curiosity about the world. It can remind you to slow down and pay attention to the details of your surroundings, to find joy in simple things, and to appreciate the beauty that can be found in unexpected places.
Additionally, the act of collecting sea glass can be a mindful and meditative activity. It can help you to quiet your mind and focus on the present moment, as you sift through the sand and water to find each new piece.
Overall, discovering sea glass can be a fun and fulfilling way to connect with your inner child, explore your creativity, and find a moment of peace and mindfulness in your day.
