I’ve been feeling an unbelievable push toward the ocean lately. I keep telling my dad how much I want to go back to Hawaii. But it’s not necessarily Hawaii I crave, it’s the energy, the force that is our ocean. Our water. It’s breath taking. The unknown and extraordinary with so much space left untouched, unseen, unheard. Moved by the moon, it gives everything, everyone, life. It heals, nourishes, cleans, makes hurricanes, provides a home to many, falls from the sky like magic. Even the feeling of a long hot shower is personal and resetting. It’s certainly the hands of Mother Nature, running her fingers down the backs of our forests, our trees, our people, our animals, our plants. Without it we would all be gone. Perished. Rubbish that once existed, only to be left with a story miscued and confusing to those that didn’t live it.
And to think... how we treat our oceans now. It’s like we don’t know. We don’t know that we are mostly made up of water, that it takes up 70% of earths surface, that the ocean holds 96% of our water. Somehow, in some way, we forget. But we can remember a rap song from 7th grade like we memorized it yesterday.
While a drive or a flight to the ocean is in need very soon, feeling it’s energy inside of me, pulling me towards it, is a divine reminder to do my part. From now on, I will pick 1 thing a month, to change and improve on in my own lifestyle to better take care of our sweet water and the rest of our nature. We have to do our part and take care of our planet for ourselves, but even more importantly, our kids. Our families yet to be here, and the ones right beside us. We know we know we know, but do we act? I’ll share my personal changes along the way and maybe that’ll inspire you to improve in your own way as well. 🌎
We are a part of nature, let’s not be the shittiest part, let’s work with it. A symbiotic relationship of love, don’t spit on it. Or don’t be surprised when it spits on you back. 📷: @indg0
