We Are Like Oceans

September 11, 2017 in Recovery

~ You are an ocean. Like waves you rise and fall, sometimes crashing so ferociously into the sand with the strongest under toe. But always returning to steadiness. For the water consumes all your past hurt and pain, leaving you to float so effortless among the fishes beneath you. You are never alone here in these deep blue waters. Oceans are so beautiful- full of life and energy; just like you.  ~

We really are like oceans. Our minds are in a constant ripple of thoughts- sometimes good, sometimes bad. We learn to swim with the tide, just like we learn to move with the challenges of our lives. We find rhythm among the water, just like we find rhythm in our daily routines. We carry so much strength within us, just like the ocean carries so much strength and power.

But sometimes we treat oceans poorly too. We forget to take care of them. We don’t give them as much love and care as we should. We emit so much CO2 into the atmosphere which causes our oceans to acidify- leading to so many beautiful living creatures suffering or dying. We are doing the same thing to ourselves. When we emit toxic thoughts into our brains, we are setting ourselves up for suffering and pain. How can beauty grow when we plant seeds of hate into our brains?

Stop. Stop showering yourself with negative thoughts about yourself, your body, your life. Oceans do not need toxicity, and neither do you. Stop beating yourself up for every time you fall or fail. The ocean waves are constantly falling for in order to rise, we need to fall. Accept your low points without judging yourself for them… and truly accept them for what they are. You will move forward and grow despite feeling so small and weak. You will be okay.


You will be messy in this life. You will feel scattered and all over the place. Do not let this discourage you. The ocean is messy and scattered, yet it continues to flow- and so should you.

Remember you are in charge of your thoughts… of course we cannot think positively all the time. Vibrate higher on the days you are feeling low and not thinking the best thoughts. Remember to respect yourself just as you respect the ocean waters. Do not go by living this life feeling worthless and unlovable… for you have so much worth and you are so worthy of love. Move with your heart through the ups and downs, the high points and the low points.

*happiest of Mondays to you… sending light and love to all you lovely beings. go flow so effortlessly like the ocean waters today and be KIND to yourself!! xoxo

    Yes LIFE will be so messy, but I am so so thankful of the grace of God in the Lord Jesus Christ to me and so many that takes broken messy people like me that go uppp and down and sets our feet in the rock which is Christ! <3 you Lyss. It's such a good reminder that we aren't perfect, and we are going to struggle but that's because we're human.

    This hits home for my Lyss. I have a keychain on my car keys that is in the shape of a whale and says “Just go with the flow”. I like that concept 🙂
