Dance crazy and then crash like the waves of the ocean. Sing a lot and then smooth out the crash the waves create, kindly calming the tides of the ocean. Be unapologetic and sarcastic and sweet and fierce and smart and beautiful, the way the whole damn ocean is. Love a love so deep that it exposes your natural beauty like that of salt minerals and sea glass washed upon the shore. Know what’s good for your soul and know what’s the death of it, just like the animals and mermaids that inhabit the glorious waves of the underwater. Dance, sing, be unapologetic and sarcastic and sweet and fierce and smart and beautiful, and love a love so deep, and know what’s good for your soul and what’s the death of it, the way the whole damn ocean just does and is.
