Fucking Mermaid PSA: We Swim Around It





Dearest Mermaids,

Even though the family might not understand us, may try poke us with sharp things, tangle us in nets or make judgement calls about our lives,  we are going to Honor ourselves...because we're fucking Mermaids.

Even though we might allow other people to get under our shiny scales or unleash a hot pink streak of rage, we are going to Love the shit out of ourselves...because we're fucking mermaids.

We swim around it, over it, under it, through it Gracefully. 

As magickal creatures we know the junk that drops out of their mouths usually comes from a place of Love. In which case we have the powers to accept the Love, and leave the criticism behind like a candy wrapper.

As magickal creatures we know that if the junk drooling from their mouths sprouts from a more sinister place of Not Love that we don't have to accept it.

We know that Junk crawls out of a place of resentment of our happiness, regrets about mistakes and even a nasty stubborn wound that has nothing to do with us...

In which case we know to send them a big fucking scoop of Love--because Love is infinite and we can spare it.

We swim around it, over it, under it, through it Gracefully. 

As fucking Mermaids we recognize that just because we share genetic material or ceremonial bonds with others doesn't make it okay for them to treat us like shit.

Mermaids aren't dumb.

We're also wise enough and punk rock enough to know that it's okay if other people do not approve of our life choices, because WE approve of our life choices...and we're fucking mermaids.

Mermaids are allergic to ignorance.

We swim around it, over it, under it, through it Gracefully.  

We know the zeitgeist that if we do not perform to our tribes precise specifications--that we must be here, do this, say that or be brutally punished-- is a big fat lie we tell ourselves to stay unnecessarily stuck.

As free range creatures of Immpossibility,
as slippery sexy beings of the Deep,
as fucking mermaids, we say "Fuck that."

As experts at navigating dark waters, we know that this too will pass.

And we will swim around this, 
over this, 
under this
 and through this 
Gracefully together



Happy Holidays, Merfolks. XOXO
