I am an ocean of calm. I can’t always reach that ocean, but I know it is there under the surface waiting. I find it by meditation, mindfulness, walks in the woods, changing weather, fall leaves, belly laughs, knowing I am loved, the smell of a baby’s head, my secret swim spot.
Sometimes life presses and it’s much harder to find. In those times I need a reminder that that ocean is still there calling me to it.
