Everything is Temporary

Temporary: 1. not permanent; provisional 2. lasting only a short time

What Color is the Atlantic Ocean in this photo????
Hutchinson Island, Ft. Pierce, Florida

I was on a walk about again last weekend. This time it was a weekend at the Disney Parks in Orlando where I always have fun. I’m telling you, I never get tired of visiting Disney. More about that trip later in the week. This post is about the magical place in the photo. Can you believe that’s a real place?  I still don’t have a name for the special color of the Atlantic Ocean which elicits magical feelings of joy and the wonderment of possibilities from me.

On the drive back home we decided we weren’t done having fun yet.  So we exited the Turnpike in search of the beach.  Florida is fabulous that way, just head east and eventually you’ll reach the beach.  Driving over one bridge, then another and another.  Stopping here and there but I still longed to continue roaming and exploring until finally ending up on a quiet street with little traffic.  From the road the only thing visible was a welcoming gazebo painted a funny shade of orange where tall brown beach grass danced and swayed to the rhythm of the wind. I was completely clueless of the beauty lying in wait of my searching heart.

At the top of the gazebo stairway I was  stunned speechless.  That color!!!  What a color.  I felt I was the luckiest person on the planet to witness such intense beauty.  I’m sure I said ‘wow’ and laughed out loud as I pulled out my camera to greedily capture this precious moment. 

Half mesmerized, I took my time finding a spot on the sand near the shore where I could safely watch the rough waves pounding forcefully onto the sand without the ocean stealing me away.  Paper thin luminous seashells made music as the waves tussled them about.  The sun momentarily bouncing off the pearl like surfaces only to disappear with the next wave.  It was a reminder of how everything is temporary and we are extremely lucky for the good things we get so we better treasure them while we can. 

Hiding behind the lens, snapping away trying not to cry because I was overwhelmed with the feeling of joy.  Completely grateful to be alive and be able to experience everything I have experienced.


“Impossible is just a big word thrown around by small men who find it easier to live in the world they’ve been given than to explore the power they have to change it. Impossible is not a fact. It’s an opinion. Impossible is not a declaration. It’s a dare. Impossible is potential. Impossible is temporary. Impossible is nothing.” Muhammad Ali

“Passion and satisfaction go hand in hand, and without them, any happiness is only temporary, because there’s nothing to make it last.” Nicholas Sparks

“You are an infinite spiritual being having a temporary human experience.” Wayne W. Dyer

“We might not know we are seeking people who best enrich our lives, but somehow on a deep subconscious level we absolutely are. Whether the bond is temporary or permanent, whether it succeeds or fails, fate is simply a configuration of choices that combine with others to shape the relationships that surround us. We cannot choose our family, but we can choose our friends, and we sometimes, before we even meet them.” Simon Pegg
