i feel like my best self

when i’m with the sea

i feel like my best self

when i am outside

when i am with the trees

when i am with the sea.

when i am flowing,

in flow

in formation

in flux.

when i am changing,

ever changing

with trust.

i feel like my best self

when i have an idea

when i follow through

when i do the things i say

that i wanted to do.

when i say yes

when i say no

when i say what i want

when i move slow.

when i’m pausing to breathe

when i know i can be

a little crazy scattered indecisive and lazy

a little unmoored and entirely me.
