‘Un-wavering’ – Day 336/365 – R2100

, ,

The word unwavering washed over me today.  “To be steady and resolute”. Nothing stops the waves from spilling into shore and crashing on the beaches. Every second of every day, the ocean makes her waves and brings them to shore. But they’re not always big, massive gnarly waves. Some days they’re gentle crests, some days soft ripples and other days when it looks like a barely visible stir, her soft swell is still there. ⁠
.⁠
Her waves take a great many forms. But in being the ocean – she is unwavering.⁠
.⁠
The ocean-inspired lesson is that to be unwavering in your commitment doesn’t mean having to roll out the big waves every damn day.

So here’s day 336’s painting on day 336.⁠
.⁠
It’s not actually complete (let’s see who can spot what’s missing) but in keeping with the previous post – it is ‘calmplete’.⁠
.⁠
I had an ocean gifted aha moment sitting @wavescapesa earlier this evening listening to all the fantastic and inspiring speakers.⁠
.⁠
They were all so committed to their work. And the word unwavering washed into my mind. What does that mean? “To be steady and resolute”. Now get this – nothing stops the waves from spilling into shore and crashing on the beaches. Every second of every day, the ocean makes her waves and brings them to shore. But they’re not always big, massive gnarly waves. Some days they’re gentle crests, some days soft ripples and other days when it looks like a barely visible stir, her soft swell is still there. ⁠
.⁠
Her waves take a great many forms. But in being the ocean – she is unwavering.⁠
.⁠
I don’t know where I got the notion in my head that every day requires my 150 % (or maybe I do….) but I’m loving this ocean-inspired lesson and insight that I can be unwavering in my commitment while not having to roll out the big waves every damn day. ✌🏼⁠

Now who can tell me what detail I still need to paint in on this one?⁠
