Life’s a beach (or 3 things the ocean taught me about life)

Sunrise over the Atlantic Ocean in Kitty Hawk, N.C.

  • What a good friend recently told me about life is true: sometimes when a wave is crashing down on you, the best thing you can do is stop fighting and let it wash over you.  Every wave runs out of energy. Sometimes they will even knock you toward the shore where you’re safe.
  • If you build your castle too close to the waves, they will destroy it.
  • Sometimes the really cool shell you think you found while digging blindly in the sand and surf is actually a crab with claws. And he isn’t happy you disturbed him.

    you should learn how to duckdive… I guess it’s sth like “the first cut is the deepest” and when you learned how to stand up, you can do it again and again. well… “find a way to smile and never let it get away”!
