At times we get caught up in "winds" of our lives or of the world and we lose our rest. We get so focused on trying to calm the winds of the sea that our level of stress, anxiety and frustration can run rampant. Aristotle Onassis had the idea that instead of focussing on how to make the "sea" rest, we can instead learn to sail. Learning to sail in our lives can look a number of different ways. Every one of us can always get better at life. Some aspects may be finances. Getting better at budgeting or managing our money is one area that we can begin to sail in high winds. Another area, may be in stress management skills. Learning how to cope with our stress and take care of ourselves is an area that helps us to sail in our sea, instead of focusing on calming the sea. Making schedules, meal planning, exercising, reading and more are all examples of areas we can learn to sail in. My hope for you this week, is that you take the time to inventory your life and decide a couple of areas that you would like to get better at sailing in and then take the time you need to develop more skills.
Take care everyone and have a great week!
