When You Love a Girl Who Loves the Ocean

When you love a girl who loves the ocean, never tell her where to go, rather, let her take you where she goes.

When you love a girl who loves the ocean, you may never dream of catching her.

A girl who loves the ocean wishes not to stay docked at her port, but to let the winds guide her sail as she explores into the unknown.

A girl who loves the ocean will never let someone be her dock, but someone to be her second Captain; her right hand in command.

A girl who loves the ocean will never think first of the dangers of the unknown, or let the thoughts of unfamiliarity scare her away from diving into something she knows nothing of.

A girl who loves the ocean is happily curious, because she knows too much caution can make her unhappy. This girl, who loves the ocean, lets her toes dip where she feels it’s needed but lets her body drift wherever the waves will take her.

A girl who loves the ocean will stare deep into your soul. Like fresh rain on a dry spell, she’ll flow through your cracks inch by inch until your entire being is filled with her and you both quench for air as much as you soak in her hydrated healing.

If you ever want to be with a girl who loves the ocean, learn to watch, and listen, as much as you chase her away from the shore.

Be the beach she returns to and crashes on, be the grains of sand that melt into the ground when the waves return from the sea, be her light and day when she feels it’s time to step back or feels its time to move forward. Dance with her in synchrony when there’s a storm, a calm sunny day, pouring rain, or simply a day to smile for.

When you love a girl who loves the ocean, you must love her in her entirety. Like an iceberg, you only see a small percentage on the surface but must dive deep with deliberation beneath her to uncover the kingdom left unspoken where 90% of her unfolds.

When you love a girl who loves the ocean, remember to breath in her fresh scent that may tangle the ends of your hair and make you look beyond what you can see. When you love a girl who loves the ocean, treat her well, as she will be wild with nature yet soft as a ripple in a still pond.

When you love a girl who loves the ocean, never tell her where to go, rather, let her take you where she goes.

LOVE is Always the Answer

If there’s ever a time in your life which you feel stuck, down, confused, disoriented, or at a lost for words – think about “love” and how you can respond to your situation in that one simple act.

Like most people, I often face many questions in life which I feel I cannot answer.

What college should I go?

What restaurant should I eat?

How should I respond to this person?

Why is this happening to me?

Questions that leave us speechless and incomprehensible can sometimes be the greatest gifts we receive – it’s through these questions which we truly find ourselves through one simple word: “LOVE”.

If you’re ever faced with a situation where you simply cannot find the answer, always remember that the answer is “LOVE”.

What college do I go to? The one which I genuinely love the most.

What restaurant should I eat? The one whose food I love the most.

How should I respond to this person? With love and compassion as how I would like to be treated.

Why is this happening to me? Although I cannot control certain things in life, I will respond to the world with love and focus my attention on the positive and good things that come towards me.

The answer is simple my friends, LOVE.
