(inspired by a quiet early morning stroll along the beach)
Waves come and go, like the people we encounter now and then.
They either come, stay and become significant parts of our lives. Or they come but go, thus leaving us with fleeting and/or lasting memories.
Waves are temperamental and at times, unsettling. They are like life’s troubles and struggles.
They may come suddenly and savagely. And whether we are ready or not, we’ve got to find a way to deal with them. Surf through them.
They may come slowly and mildly, giving us enough time to organize our thoughts and maybe even get creative on how to confront them.
Keep in mind though, that just as the waves come and go, so too our troubles and struggles. As long as there is water in the sea blown by the wind, the waves will undoubtedly find their way back to you and me. It is apt to say that as long as we exist and breathe, there will be challenges to meet and greet:)
Waves can be seen as ordinary or otherwise.
Take a walk along the beach at sunrise. Put away your mobile phone. Be free to feel the fresh and cool morning breeze. Listen to the sound of the gentle splashing of the waves as they reach the shore.
Beautiful. Peaceful. Soothing.
Quite out of the ordinary.
Unfortunately, just as waves have the ability to bounce back and forth, life hasn’t and cannot. We all know it ends with one final gasp of air. The last breath.
This is a harsh reminder that we’ve only got one chance to live. One.
No matter how mundane it is, we have to make everyday of our existence worthwhile.
Now, take a break from the hectic hustle and bustle of your life and go to the beach…
