Surfing the Waves of Life
I read something the other day that I wanted to pass on. The article was talking about the ups and downs of day-to-day living. The little joys. The BIG HONKIN' victories. Those quiet lulls. The crashing lows. The author (and I don't remember who wrote it….so my apologies to the author in advance) likened these ebbs and flows to waves in the ocean. After every crest there is a lull. After every lull there is a crest. So beautifully simple. So life is surfing. Paddling out in the lulls, surfing the crests, occasionally getting thrown off the board, getting back on and paddling out again in the lull that follows. And wherever you are on the wave, remember the opposite. Good or bad, that wave doesn't last forever.
