Ripple Effect

Ripple Effect:

I’m getting pulled under.
Faster and faster.
Deeper and deeper.
Until it all turns black.

I almost can’t breathe.
As I try to scream loud.
Louder and louder.
But, not loud enough.

Nobody hears me.
Nobody sees me.
Nobody cares.
I don’t know what to do.

Then, all of a sudden.
I’m gasping for air.
I see the blue skies,
As I let myself cry.

What just happened?
I do not know.
My life re-transformed.
Once again above waters.

And in that brief moment,
I now know I’ve been wrong.
People do care.
Just not you.

Words for those who are feeling lost.
Let this be some guidance to help you “let go”.

Let go of the hurt someone may have caused you.
No need for explanations. For it’s not worth it.
There is a point when we have to stop asking ourselves “Why?”,
and just accept the silence. Follow our hearts, and find peace…

This rip current is a description of what it could feel like to lose hope.
To lose love. To lose faith.

Some days, may feel long. And I mean, really long.
The type of long that you just can’t get to sleep at night.
You toss and turn, wondering what went wrong.
You feel overwhelmed with emotion.
You don’t know who to talk to about it,
So you lay wide awake, and think.
And think, and think, and think, and think.

If you think too hard, it will hurt.
It will only cause more pain.
More tears. More not-so-good thoughts.

I was in this situation before, where the rip current pulled me down under.
It’s happened twice, both times in Florida….I was terrified!
But, my girls’ faces flashed before me. That’s what I remember
– and today –
they are what gives me the courage to stay focused on the positive.

You have to find your PURPOSE.
You have to find your REASON.
Because you are WORTH it.
There may be that one person who doesn’t see the REAL you,
but there’s ALWAYS that person who does!

And that’s what you need….that’s what counts! ❤️

Let’s untangle our mind, and set it free…
