the ocean reminds me of the vastness of this world and the smallness of us as human beings. we are so small yet so unique and so powerful. we have the power to change people and moments and places and things. we have the power to choose our paths and change the way “things have always been.” we can express love and grow and learn. or we can shout and fight and refuse. we are all individuals, such beautiful individuals; and I am grateful for these opportunities we are given, regardless of how big or small.
