I was recently in a conversation with a group of people discussing our zodiac signs and the traits that go with them. Once I started learning about everyones character, I felt like I could be a combination of couple signs. I’m a virgo, which basically means my mind is constantly on the go, I’m usually thinking about what’s next and you can guarantee I have a to-do list written down somewhere in my vicinity. However, I also feel as much as I carry those traits which are valuable to a business, relationships and my lifestyle, I also have another more relaxed side of me that is a bit more easy going and can truly appreciate being in the moment. I’ve come to realized that nothing brings that side out more in me than being by the water. The sound, the scene, the smell – takes away all my to-do lists and allows me to slow down and just be. The balance of finding this calming side of myself has been so beneficial in the recent months, it has allowed me to take a step back and let life take it’s course. You can’t control it all and sometimes that’s okay. So whenever I’m feeling overwhelmed, I know now that a visit to any body of water will feed the soul in a way that nothing else can. What calms you?

  • A wonderful post … the water 💦 always have a sense of calming effect to the soul and wellbeing. Somehow as each wave comes, it seemed to have fades out my worries everytime I visit the ocean. It’s just a fabulous renewal feeling! 🙂

  • Same here. The sound of the water does it for me. If I don’t have access to a beach, I will book an hour of floating therapy at a SPA.

  • Love this two piece set, you look great! What calms me is being close to the nature and away from my phone – weekend away in the countryside where thereis no mobile reception works miracles!

    Oh I´m completely into zodiac signs!!! It´s one of the first things I asked, when I get to know new people 😉 I am a capricorn, what helps me to relax is to read a good book or go for a walk or a hike.

  • That is so interesting! I am an Aries which means we are quite fiery and always on the go. I don’t let the qualities of my sign overpower me (I can still be really timid!!!) but I find that I can get really flustered sometimes and I find that exercise calms me down or being by the sea.. so lovely!

    Love your beautiful outfit <3

  • That’s really cool! I’m a Sagittarius. 🙂 Music is definitely the best medicine for me when I need to feel calm.

  • I agree – there’s no better way to relax than by the beach! <3 🙂 Haha and I've never really been in to zodiac signs until this past year, but now that I've started, I can't stop!

    I’m an Aries, but find myself having traits more in common with Pisces; I also loooove the beach, or a great book can also take me away.
