Sometimes you have to lose control to get it back. Or maybe you never had it. •

The sun sets but it also rises. One day at a time. •

If you’re not careful with it, you’re heart can crack wide open and break into a million tiny pieces that seem impossible to pick up and put back inside. Your body doesn’t know how to react to the heart’s betrayal and sudden implosion, and it’s up to you to heal it and fight for a way forward. Good luck to everyone who is still fighting to pack it all back up. •

Where water and sky become one. When you focus on the horizon, it’s easy to feel consumed by the expansiveness. The barrier from one surface to another seems so distinct and abrupt but also so fluid and calm. If only the lines in life were as defined and tranquil.

Both in water and in life, sometimes making the decision to let go ends up being less painful then fighting and holding on for dear life. Though the former is much harder to accept than the latter. •

Rain can be so therapeutic. A cleansing and purifying of sorts. Besides, it makes everything look so fresh and new. •

This is a primal instinct, it seems. I’d like a sac to hide under today. Who’s with me?!? •

One minute you’re up, the next you’re down. Above the water, then you dip down below. It feels like you’re in two places at once, making it hard to feel grounded or understood. Trying to embrace the journey and focus on the beauty. •

Every detail about you is exquisite, intricate, and alluring. In a time where we are angrier than ever before, and with good cause, we must choose to see beauty and hope. I may not always remember this, but when I look through a lens I sure do. I love photography, it gives me the time I need to seek out the beauty I know still exists in this world. Be the seeker. •

We’re always given what we need. Just like when the skies open and the rain glides down, nourishing the land. Wait for it, it will come. •

Sometimes in life it’s helpful to have markers or signs guiding our way. We often look for these to help give us clarity on our direction or to keep us safe. Would we falter without them? Often I think we become more successful or discover greatness when we ignore these and follow an internal guide instead. Be pushed beyond your boundaries and beyond the limits of what’s expected or signaled. You won’t be disappointed. •
