As I approach my birthday, I’m thinking a bit about what my life means. I imagine our bodies being like a simple but beautiful boat that has been gifted to us and how we maintain it is our choice. We can fix it up or let it go. We can add people to the crew that can help or hurt the cruise. Our cargo choices are not always perfect but they are important. Sometimes we have to throw a few things overboard. The big picture is this…no matter what, we must surrender to the ocean, ride the waves. We can steer a bit, pilot the ship some but in the end, we are just a small vessel in an overwhelming and beautiful sea that is our world. Close your eyes, take a breath and surrender to what is.
