Guest Post :: The Mermaid Creed


The Mermaid Creed

Whispered from mother to child
by Susan Fodor

Listen to the rhythm of the waves,
Feel your heart beating,
Every breath is a gift,
Embrace life or it will elude you.
Love big like the ocean.
Laugh like the giggling waves.
Flee fear and embrace courage.
Feeling hidden is not being unseen.
Guard you heart for our kind only love once and it is life long.
True beauty is internal.
No wrong is too large to bury in the deepest part of the sea.
Control your feelings, or they will become a merciless master.
Reason is the heart’s dearest companion.
Life finds color in contradiction.
Every tear shed can make you stronger or weaker—you must choose.
There is great beauty and dark ugliness in life, what you focus on is what you will receive.
If you believe you’re desirable, intelligent and purposeful, others will follow your lead.
Never forget where you came from, for we are all water, sand and air.
So listen, love, laugh, feel and breath.

To celebrate all things summer and mermaids we’re announcing…
