Bottomless Seas 

**I wrote this post after a vacation with one of my closest friends.  Honestly, I thought it had been deleted accidentally, so it was never posted.  Super excited to find it again.  Enjoy.**

I woke up this morning, still feeling the waves beneath me.  And though I know I remain on dry land, the rhythm of the sea still dwells deep within.  I’ve always been transfixed by the soft white caps that make up the ocean’s waves.  There’s something about it that speaks to the soul in a language that only exists in movement.  The ebb and flow a deep breath in and out of the waters great, proverbial lungs…its beauty immeasurable.

Standing on rocky shores, I embraced you.  I stared into your great expanse and came back changed.  I touched your edges and you touched my soul.  We danced together on sandy beaches beneath a bright and tropical sun.  It was a time I will not soon forget.

The wind was at our backs, propelling us ever forward, urging us onward toward adventure.  We tasted exotic foods, drank to our heart’s content, and experienced some of life’s great moments.  Every instance forever etched in our memories.

Within your waves, my heart dwells.  Inside my mind, your calm exists.  We are one, you and I.  Uncharted, with depths undiscovered.  I will carry you with me always.

Until we meet again. ❤

We Close Our Eyes

Imagine a woman. 

She struggles.  She fights.  She climbs from dark depths.  She breathes fire and moves mountains. When she sleeps the world blurs and fades away, because all life lives within her.  She is strength personified.  She is that which you are, and all that you are not.  She is a cleansing rain.  She is resilience.  She is woman.  She is you.  She is me.

I have lived a life of adversity.  I have wrestled with demons, and spoken with angels.  In my time on this earth, I have done my damndest to breathe life into my surroundings, support those whom I love, and shape myself into the person I am today.  I fail more than I succeed, but not trying is never an option.  

My ideology is this: Take joy in the little things.  Appreciate always.  Live to be grateful.  Share your truths.  Be better.  Help those less fortunate.  Participate.  Let go of negativity.  Be confident in yourself, and your abilities.  Laugh…loudly and often.  Intellectualize and theorize with abandon.  Take chances.  Be kind.  

I say these things with no judgement, no negative intent…I am no more evolved than you, merely self-actualized.  We are that which we choose to be.  Your only limitations being the breadth of your vast imagination.  So have your dreams, be your dreams, live your dreams.  

And never, ever let life pass you by.
