Life is full of wave after wave of challenges. Some splash against us. Some crash against us, and some threaten to sweep us away like giant tsunamis.
We can kick and struggle, doing our best not to go under, or we can lie on our backs and…float. Floating is easier when the waves are small. The water doesn’t crash over our faces. But even when the waves are giant it is better to rest than to struggle. The truth is, we are at the mercy of the waves. We can’t stop them or slow them down, all we can do is figure out the best way to swim through them.
I think it is better to float; take careful breaths and look up at the light.
