I've always been mystified by how amazed I am each time I sit near the ᴏᴄᴇᴀɴ

To stand on the edge and be on the cusp of seeing something so endless and so vast, so beautiful yet so misunderstood and abused. The ocean is a beautiful artefact that nature has kindly loaned to us and for me it's a huge metaphor.
I was tagged by the amazing, sweet @caffeineandchemistry a long while back to do the #MyWhy and I'm glad I took the time I needed to properly ruminate on this. Just like the leaves of Fall that drop and change colour, so our minds undergo a shift - our thoughts, our plans, our idealogies - it's a growing phase and right now I'm definitely feeling growing pains. But that's okay.
My why is my fuel, my why is what pushes me but to be completey honest I'm still in search of my why. As a pharmacy student, I have the opportunity to provide help and care to those who need it and this is something that without a shadow of a doubt, I am truly passionate about. I guess my journey on discovering my why is still on the road of construction.
I know one thing.
For anyone who is reading this - do not starve your passion and stifle your inner, gut voice. Stop trying to find that elusive source of motivation. Start discovering what your why truly is. I am and hopefully you will too :)
