If you ever want to ask me for my wisdom on life, I’d say life, like surfing in the middle of the ocean is all about wave selection and balance. Sometimes you lose your balance, and fall, and go under. Then you try to swim to the surface for air but often another wave bashes your head and pulls you under the surface before you get a chance to take a breath.
If you give in to despair and panic, you will run out of air and the waves will overtake you. But if you stay calm, the waves will pass and the water will become calmer.
And the challenges of life are much like waves. Sometimes it’s like you’ve survived one challenge only to find another one waiting to test you again. But just like with surfing, choose hope and calm your mind.
Remember everything passes! Because with this certainty you can literally change how your brain responds to challenges in life, which, when truly sticking to it, will change your life.
