It is hard to love the ocean when its waves are currently facing the opposite direction. It’s as hard as loving someone who’s not yet done loving another person. If you try hard to ride the waves, you won’t ever reach the shore. Instead, you’ll go farther…your heart will draw farther. But it’s okay. Why love the ocean when you can love the earth where your feet are now planted? You will grow loving yourself. Your heart will grow better.
