Riding the Wave

Sometimes you just have to ride the wave.
Even when you don't think you know how.
Even when all you can think of is how much you need a boat.  Or at least a life vest.  Or how much you'd like a big wave simply rinse you out of your rock and hard spot.  Even then.
Some people really know how to ride the wave.  They relax and let the water take them wherever it will.  They don't thrash, they float.  Even when the waters get rough, these folks know that a calmness will return.
They trust.  They let go.
And they wait to see what unfolds in the ripples.

Me too Cindy and I am awful at it! I need to get there too. I want to believe the universe holds great things, even for those of us who thrash! Thank you for your kind comment. It means a lot to me.
