The waves of life. The ebbs and the flows. Why is it so easy to hop on our imaginary surfboards and ride the shit out of the crap waves of life, hanging on to them like there is no tomorrow, not letting go…becoming victims to our bad thoughts, bad situations, bad relationships, bad moments at work? But… when it comes to the good waves in life, those magical moments, they tend to be fleeting & short lived? Something good happens, and , “oh it must be a fluke,” “probably won’t happen again.” We let the good moment pass because our minds tell us it’s temporary..or maybe it’s because we want to be humble about what has just happened to us…we let that goodness, that good wave fizzle out before it’s even swelled. Although nothing is permanent, why do we hang on the the bad waves more so than the good ones.
Maybe we are scared of what will happen when the good moment, the good wave passes? These are all valid feelings but if you stop and thing of it we depriving ourselves of true, rich life moments?
You know, those moments when it feels like you are accessing something deep – like tapping into abundance or the good things in life. Like something really awesome happens to you at work, or you meet someone, somewhere, that makes your stop and think this person had literally changed my perspective on something..maybe life in general? It is those times when doors open that you didn’t expect and things line up in a way you never imagined, or something comes into your reality that totally surprised you.
Ride the wave of the moment you have been gifted with – yes, it may not last forever (the wave). But life is an ebb and a flow. And so whether you ride the wave or not, the wave will vanish into the ocean. You might as well enjoy it. Be smart though, as some of the waves of life seem really good and satisfying at first, but they will crash and burn very fast. Be true to yourself and your values, that is.
Life has its good moments and it has its difficult moments. Just because you enjoy the good moments doesn’t mean you will suddenly be thrust into difficult moments. It just means you stayed focused in the moment, rode the wave and thoroughly enjoyed it. Seize your moments as the present moment is all you have. Loving the moment has nothing to do with bringing in difficult moments. Prove it to yourself – ride the wave to new heights.
