So, I have been thinking about the beach lately. The weather here in Jacksonville is warming up, the beaches are getting a little more crowded and the children’s laughter a little more high pitched. Having spent my summers as a kid going to visit my Aunt Joan at her beach bungalow in Breezy Point, N.Y., I have always had a sense of fun and excitement about going to the beach. Even today, I love to sit in my chair, and watch the kids run around and play in the sand and dance on their tippy toes in the water! Some of my very favorite memories of my childhood took place on that beach in Breezy Point…playing with my sisters and cousins, meeting other kids and tumbling in the waves. I can still feel the pull of the undertow every time I place my feet in the ocean water!
How many times have you seen kids building a castle together or holding hands and running toward the water…squealing with delight? Many times, they only just met. Why is it that, as children, it is so easy to meet a “stranger” and instantly become a friend – especially at the beach?
Or, maybe the better question is, why is it so much harder as adults to be open to meet other people and work together in the name of fun? It is something we like to do on a professional level at Incepture. We like to meet new people and find ways to help you build your “castle in the sand.” So, next time you see us out in the community, be it at a job fair or Chamber meeting, stop by and say hello. You never know. Maybe we met before, on a sandy shore, blissfully holding hands together and running toward the water!
