Sink or Swim
For the last few months, I have been sinking in my OWN beautiful ocean. Period. I mean just barely making it no genuine smiles, no laughing until I cried. I was just here on God’s green earth living day by day…hour by hour and minute by minute. Until I made the unconscious decision to tread the water. Tread the water = TAKE A FEW DAYS OFF = VACATION. I was treading the water, going under just checking out the screen and coming back up to catch air. Underwater, it was a whole lot of thangs going: I was TIRED, over COMMITTED, under-estimating my own POTENTIAL, and random negative THOUGHTS. My ocean was POLLUTED! I was DROWNING!!
ON VACATION-I came up for air. I noticed how beautiful the blue sky looked, and the temperature of the water was on spot. I had to realize how blessed I am to be in my own beautiful ocean. To be honest, my ocean was filled with hurt, trials, fear, and trauma. My ocean had to be cleaned up right then and there.
Sometimes your ocean is full of trash. Sometimes it is crystal clear and clean on top but underneath it's just downright dirty. You have to fill your ocean with what you need to make you smile or laugh until you cry.
People can look at your life and say how??? How you just over here sinking?? You got everything you need and things many want. Some people only see when you come up for air looking all fresh and clean but little did they know what was going on at the bottom of your ocean.
We're halfway into 2022....It may be time to clean your ocean!
This goes out to all my women who are drowning in their own Beautiful ocean:
