staying afloat

my horoscope yesterday said:

"Ever notice the word 'ship' in relationship? Yep, it's right there at the end. Maybe it's there to remind you that relationships need all hands on deck to stay afloat."

I thought it was an interesting way to look at relationships. This is probably why I always take great care of mine and I can't fathom the thought of letting them go. I don't want to drown!! You see I don't know how to swim, yeah that's weird for a pisces but once I'm in the ocean I don't want to get out, I settle for jumping the waves. I love to do that.

Maybe if I learn how to swim, I can learn how to let go because I wouldn't be so scared of drowning. I would believe in my strength to keep my head above water.

Swimming lessons it is :)

as your title suggests, sometimes we just need to learn how to float. hence, it wouldn't require much energy for you to stay in the ocean. :)

that's true rain :) however i have failed everytime i've tried to float literally.
my friends tell me to just relax and let go but I can't!! i know it's all in my mind.
i have to learn to control my fear.

You're too pretty to be in a ship, what with all the risks of pirates and sharks.

Lorena said...

that's cute fist :) thanks!
now you made it sound like a cool adventure w/the mention of pirates & sharks.

the words "let go" when you're in a great big ocean is quite the tall order. but then again, us brave ones take the silliest risks. to prove a point. to save ourselves.

Lorena said...

well said transience!

all this talk of the ocean has made we want to go on vacation :)

Lorena said...

you know now when i think about it some more "save ourselves" really stuck out and it made me finally see that i am in need of a rescue and it can only come from me. wish me luck :)

transience said...
