Sometimes, it feels as though the waves of life are getting bigger.

There can be aspects of life that are beyond our control and they can have an extremely unsettling impact on our daily lives.

Perhaps you just got a report from your doctor that you weren’t expecting.

Or there’s an issue with a colleague at work.

Maybe it’s just a combination of all of the crazy aspects of your life and you feel as though it’s getting on top of you.

Today, I want to remind you that you can’t control how big the waves get, but you can learn to surf.

The waves don’t need to pull you under, they can propel you to something greater.

You may not be able to control what is going on around you, but you can control your response.
