ellie_ocean On shore, Garett turned to Chris with the biggest smile and mouthed "I told you bro." | In case you were wondering, this is what his tattoo says: "A hero is an ordinary individual who finds the strength to persevere and endure in spite of overwhelming obstacles." - Christopher Reeve. | Life is so precious. In a world where some days can feel so dark, take a moment to count your blessings and be thankful for every moment you are given. Strive to treat everyone kindly and compassionately. Listen to people, the animals, nature. Let yourself laugh, cry, stumble, get confused, make mistakes, ask for help, etc. We all have our flaws- this is a big part of being a REAL human being and flaws don't make us an incomplete person. Be able to accept that we are all still 'works in progress'. Forgiving people or a situation can be the hardest thing in the world, but also the most liberating. Whatever you do, don't waste your time here engulfed by anger. Allow yourself to grow. Aspire to become a better person than you were yesterday. Whether it's the smallest act or largest, be a positive force for humanity. (6/6) 1w

ellie_ocean Chris was unsure about surfing at first and eyed the water the entire day. He watched Garett catch a few waves on the beach and decided he had to try it himself. @wavesofimpact 1w

ellie_ocean Chris became a C6 quadriplegic in his early 20s by diving into a shallow pool. He has movement in his upper body and arms. Like Garett, he is also cousins with @wavesofimpact volunteer @ashleyreneeshriver. Chris and Garett are Ashley's cousins through her mothers side and step fathers side, respectively. Though the two are not related, their unique circumstances led them to meet after their accidents and develop an inseparable support group. (4/6) 1w

ellie_ocean Garett became a C3 quadriplegic during his senior year of high school due to a car accident. He lives in west Texas. After the accident, his town helped remodel their family home and purchased a van to fit his needs. Here, he waits with his cousin @ashleyreneeshriver for a wave at the @wavesofimpact Galveston event. (2/6) 2w

ellie_ocean The Spanish colonial fort San Juan de Ulúa is located in the port of Veracruz, Mexico. The fort is made of brain coral and was constructed by thousands of indigenous slaves in the 15th and 16th century. It was used by the Spanish empire as a gold and silver storage area for conquistadors before sailing the materials across the Atlantic Ocean. After the Spanish era, the fort served several times as the presidential palace and continuously as a prison complex for political prisoners until intolerable human right conditions led to the forts closing in 1914. | #history #veracruz #archaeology 3w

ellie_ocean I sometimes like to imagine ET life coming to earth and the first thing they stumble upon is surfing. They continue observing the planet and try to make sense of this weird phenomenon. 4w

ellie_ocean In this instant, the village sang a hymn composed by the flux of life on those winding dirt roads; it glanced through the windows of the brightly painted buildings; it felt a light rain; it saw the most extravagant palace up the hill; and then it glanced past the matured boy showering outside in the middle of the street; it gazed at the hundreds of goats being herded by an elderly women; it grew strength and wisdom from the oldest and largest trees one may ever seen; it raced with the children down the street triumphantly holding their home made cricket gear. And the song, it echoed in time with her- perhaps looking to the future, or the past, or simply here. 1mon
