The tropic life is a life for me 🌿
How do these skinny little things make me so happy. Did you know palm trees actually symbolize things like vitality, warmth, peace and unification? They are also said to symbolize our ability to rise above conflict and spread our light brilliantly. Maybe that’s why I am so drawn to them. What draws you all to nature?
Sunsets on this island make me feel some sort of way. You can feel it deep in your bones. Growing up in America you’re quite literally trained to run on full speed. Like we’re endlessly running out of time. But here, everyone seems to stop during this hour to truly soak in what the universe has given us. All you can hear are the birds, the boats driving by, the breeze in the palm trees. Maybe even the laughter of friends from across the lagoon. It is some kind of peace I want to live in forever ✨
I give myself the freedom to break. Moments to completely crumble. I let myself fall to pieces. Knowing that in this moment I might need to hide beneath the rubble of my past. But in the next, I will rise above. Standing tall. Conquering everything I let weigh me down ✖️
And they roared as loud as thunder and carried lighting in the strike of their cruelty, but what are thunder and lightning to fearless girls who are used to carrying entire storms and hurricanes in their fingertips? ⚡️
Touch rain. Feel rivers. Breathe in trees. Eat fruit. Soak in the warmth of this sun straight down to your cells. You are here. Coax yourself into the light, and let your wanting body deeply love the world ✨ @theresamariaphoto
Before she became fire, she was water. Quenching the thirst of every dying creature.
She gave and she gave until she turned from sea to desert. But instead of dying of the heat, the sadness,
the heartache, she took all the pain and from her ashes became fire. | @nikita_gill@johngarzaphoto
