Reflecting on Mariners Apartment Complex by Lana Del Rey...
I love the mix of realness and sweetness of this song. To me, it conveys providing unwavering support despite having one's own things going on.
With these lyrics, I envision a lighthouse standing confidently and shining bright to guide you to safe harbor. Even though that lighthouse takes a beating from the elements and requires its own maintenance, it remains strong to guide you home.
In our lives, there may be a person, place, thing, or idea that gives us a sense of unconditional support. In other words, that support may be a feeling or feelings of: safety, security, dependability, trust, love, comfort, validation, hope; a sense of "home," perhaps.
Food for thought to reflect on... Who, what, or where is your lighthouse? If you don't think you have one right now, what would it ideally be?
