The encouraging thing about a wave is that it is temporary.
When I am feeling overwhelmed by waves of sadness or anxiety, it’s important to remember that.
When something doesn’t happen that I thought would happen or something happens that I thought wouldn’t happen, I can get depressed or…I can ride it out.
Learning to ride the waves is a lot more fun than letting them crash upon my head, pull me under, or roll me up into a wounded ball onto the beach.
I always wanted to learn to surf. It is not too late to do so.
