It’s been a very tough month! I’ve lost a close friend, my brother and I have been ill for most of the month. So I’ve been indulging in some ‘self pity’, something I really hate doing, but you know what? Life can be too hard sometimes!
My cousin gave me a quote and reading it I realised it really does sum up life in general.
Life is like the ocean, waves will never stop coming…but you can choose which ones to ride. Seize the moment & make it amazing!
Waves will continue in life, they are never ending. Sometimes they are gentle waves, lapping the shore and we feel happy and contented dabbling our toes in the water. Life is good and sometimes we can get complacent and not really appreciate all the good that we have in our lives.
Other waves are angry and large and we feel we will certainly drown.
However, we do have a choice – we can go under and drown or we can try again and ride the waves of life making the best of what we have at any given time.
Sometimes, life is too hard and we get dumped by the tidal wave. That’s OK – sometimes we just have to go under and when we surface we are stronger, braver and have the self belief of – Yes I can!
We can use this new found strength, courage and self belief to be more prepared when the next tidal wave hits. Believe me, it will – life is not perfect but you can make sure that when the next tidal wave hits you CAN and WILL survive.

Like the surfer learning to ride the waves, each time they are dumped and fall off the board, they hop back on and keep trying – that is the secret – NEVER GIVE UP!
When the waves of life are gentle, enjoy them, appreciate the moment and just be. Enjoy the experience and make beautiful memories to help you through the tidal waves.

If you keep trying and never give up, when you do succeed and ride the big waves with confidence you can ride them with enthusiasm and a zest for life! You choose the HERE and NOW and celebrate your achievements. In doing so you will certainly have an amazing ride.
Let’s Keep Sizzling!
