At times, we are lost in a sea of thought. We swim in new ideas and warm, nostalgic reflections on our past. Peacefully, we float in the present, letting go of the weight of worry, shame, and regret. Hopes for the future move us with the current. Our dreams allow us to ride out storms of doubt and keep afloat in the tempests that, inevitably, come from the negativity of others. Swim on. You can do this. You will make it to the shore.
