I find it ever so empowering to believe in the power, strength and never ending ocean.
Its chameleon colours stimulate our eyes.
The sweet smell of salt tickles our taste buds.
Its silky waters glide over our skin invigorating us with life and meaning.
It sings to us a symphony of sounds from the highest wave to the lowest crevasse.
You never fail to ignite a fire within me. As I submerge myself into your cool waters, my body becomes numb. Such an exhilarating feeling… not to feel. I am vulnerable and lost. I come to you with my questions, my worries, my dreams… hoping you can help me make sense of it all. The world sometimes blurs past me. I may nod politely and listen intently, trying ever so hard to pay attention. But there’s something else that grasps my spirit. It may be the glorious warmth of the sun or the encouraging breezes of the wind… I hear waves crashing as a reminder than when I am lost, you will be there to guide my way. My lungs burn as sea water drips down my throat, your magic creating the sparks deep within my heart that sometimes dim in this dark world. I am weightless. In these moments, I am invincible. My mind is clear. I am free.
I emerge from your sanctuary and inhale your fresh salty air. I can’ t help but smile as you push me towards the shore.
The sunshine kisses my skin and my spirit. Your song twirls around in my mind as I trudge back to life. You energize me, your name tattooed across my heart reminding me that happiness is never too far away.
