"You can't stop the waves but you can learn to surf." Jon Kabat-Zinn
Imagine an ocean wave coming to shore. Steep and tall it surges but hasn't broken.
Notice a pelican's approach. It rides up the face, rounds the top, and drifts back down the long back of the wave. The spindrift tickles its tummy.
Worries, anxieties, and fears build up, reach a peak and drift away. Emotions are wave-like and time limited.
Emulate the pelican's ability to dance on daily waves.
When a child plays, she stays in the moment. Life feels uncomplicated as a baby finding its toes in play.
