Ride Daily Waves

"Human beings by changing the inner attitudes of their minds, can change the outer aspects of their lives."  - William James

"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.

Set yourself up to have FUN!

Then make daily contributions to your fun-ishness.
