“For whatever we lose (like a you or a me), It's always our self we find in the sea.” 🌊🍍🏝 . . I am so in love with this picture & need to post it because I never want to forget this day! Thank you @kwsaltlife7 @fishnchickscharterskey for showing me the best way to watch the speed boat races 😉😊🥰 (& how badass going 70+ miles per hour on the water feels like✌🏻😂 ) I am so grateful for this salty blue life we live 🌊 . . . . . . The ocean is beautiful & the ocean is humbling ... such as life . Each year comes with different hardships & unique challenges for us all. The universe can chew you up, spit you out - then turn right around & hand you another serving. We all experience pain in life. Heartache, loss, disappointment. Suffering is a part of the human condition. To truly allow yourself to acknowledge & feel your pain - allows you to grow from it. It leads you to be able to recognize, feel, & appreciate your happy💕 . “Post-traumatic growth isn't discussed as frequently, but it is the concept that explains how many of us take our pain and use it as the energy to grow psychologically.It is our hurt that can crack us open and let the light in. It is our pain that can help move us towards living a more deeply fulfilling life “ . . . “In positive psychology research, gratitude is strongly and consistently associated with greater happiness. Gratitude helps people feel more positive emotions, relish good experiences, improve their health, deal with adversity, and build strong relationships.” . . Whatever it may be ; be present, let yourself feel it, let yourself heal, let yourself be happy, & always let yourself be grateful 😜✌🏻 . . . . . . . #adrenalinejunkie #nat#naturers #sky #saltywater #deepbluesea #saltlife #islandgirl #travel #naturephotography #holisticpsychology #isl#islandsventure #key#keywestlife #ocean #greatoceandrive #nature #gratefulheart #gratitude #waves #hippiequetravels #islands #oceanlove #travelphotography #oceanwaves #photography #islandstyle #speedboats #florida #keywest #islandgirls
