Quit beer. Quit cocaine. Quit cigarettes. Quit an expired friendship with the girl you call "bestie" out of habit, not love. Quit your gym. Strip yourself of it all.
Take a hot shower. Feel how naked you are. Wrap yourself in a towel and realise that everything you really, truly want to be is right here swaddled in cotton. Rebirth every morning; die every night.
While you were busy treading water you forgot that the salted sea, with its labour of love, will always lift you along, draw you on your back and let you look up at the sky. You've just gotta lean back and relax.
Things are good. Roll with the tides. Hold out your arms and crash with the waves. Hold out your arms and drift to the shore. Swim! Swim with it all!
