I want to be more like a little blue crab. To deeply understand the art of surrender. The art of letting it all wash over me.
To wash away the heartache that follows seemingly meaningless interactions that have deep-rooted toxic undertones.
Teach me how to be gentle.
How to gently feel it all.
How to gently rise and be seen. How to stand up and speak against injustice.
And how to gently recede without guilt when my heart calls me to do so.
Please crab teach me how to dig into the sand when the waves come.
Teach me how to let it all wash over me.
And pop back up as the waves recede to just carry on. And do me.
Teach me how to openly and unapologetically feel ok with my blue back and vulnerable heart that seeks only justice for all beings.
Teach me remembrance.
That the ability to feel all the heartache, anger, frustration equals the ability to feel overwhelming love and joy.
Teach me that my blue back is beautiful.
And that my emotional heart is needed to open pathways to healing and justice for all.
Teach me to trust.
That the waves always recede.
Teach me how to be a little blue crab. Quietly wise and free.
Think you’re having a bad day? Spare a thought for this giant spider crab who by all account should have 8 legs and (2 for claws). This brave soldier battled the enemy and won.... for now. Valiantly keeping up with the rest of the orange army as they march onto the sand shallows. Although they can regrow limbs, I pray this soldier survives to see the day! .
