Getting My Fix

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.


You Are Love


You are like the strong, wise ocean.

You are the reason for my existence. You give me purpose to live and breathe. You push me onto that wave when I’m scared, lift me up when I am down and inspire and motivate me when I dive into the water.

You carry the wisdom of years in your mind and body, letting it ripple along the surface, guiding us when we’re heading into a storm. Even when we make mistakes, like the kind currents you nurture us, to help us grow and understand.

The times when the sunshine beams down and all is calm and quiet gives us time to relax, just to talk and enjoy each others company, floating carelessly across the smooth surface.

There are times when we may feel like we’re drowning, getting sucked deeper and deeper under water, the cold current gripping onto our souls. It’s not easy to swim through the struggle and pain, though you carry us over your shoulders and we breathe the fresh air together, addicted to that taste of being alive.

You are our savior, our life guard, our bubbles of air that push us forward. For now, I am just a little wave of water lost in the calm waters of the Caribbean. I watch your grace and strength as you battle the seas of the Pacific, hoping one day I can become like you.

You are my best friend and my muse.

You are my Mum.

Thank you.
