I wake up and I’m yearning for something more.

I feel the tide coming for me.

Then it hits me…

The yearn for something more may never be possible if we don’t accept the present moment.

Accepting the things we don’t necessarily love, but cannot change.

What if acceptance and understanding is all that we need to move past it?

I have so many big dreams.

I want to do so many beautiful things.

I forget what I am capable of now, in this very moment is those things.

I am doing so many beautiful things…

And the more I do that the more that will come.

I must have faith in every given moment.

The tide will…NOT might take me in a direction that makes me wanna be like hold up…

Let’s turn this around.

Instead of pretending that the tide is not there…

Sometimes we must look the tide in the face.

Understand it and ride it out.

Sitting and fighting it will only cause us to stay isolated and in a place where we never can fully take off and fly.

The tide was made for warriors.

Let’s change our perspective a little in this moment together.

Let us realize how cool it is we get to experience pain, hurt, and the feeling of being lost.

Our souls are taking us through a journey worth living.

A journey where we fly.

In this very moment we can accept it all…not only accept it, but see the beauty in it all.

My soul and I have days where she just needs to fly.

On those days I’m sitting asking why…

But I know it’s a part of this journey called life.

So when it comes I will accept and ride the tide.
