I can’t change the direction of the wind, but I can adjust my sails to always reach my destination.
Life is simple. You set a course and stick to it. Sometimes, often, winds blow to drive us off course. It is the natural rhythm of life. We define a destination and obstacles appear in front of us to impede our progress. It is up to us, to weather the storm and to navigate through, over, or around the obstacle. There are many things beyond our control. Making the determination of what is within your lotus of control and living with that knowledge helps smooth the rough seas. That is what makes life the journey.
In our journey, we can choose to have the winds blow us off course and never reach the destination or we can choose to use the wind to find an alternate route to that destination. Life is about those experiences and making that journey.
Remember the journey makes you who you are. With out the rough patches and the high winds, the calm sea and smooth sailing would not be as rewarding.
