We weren’t exactly blessed with perfect June weather this weekend. Even when we left the city, beach bound for a Saturday afternoon stroll in the sand, we were met with dark skies and an angry sea.
I get it ocean, I was bummed about the weather too.
But it got me thinking about all of the photos of blue skies and gentle waves that I share each week on Instagram.
The truth is, life isn’t always sunny skies and calm seas. And that’s OK.
There’s beauty in the storm. There are lessons in the rains of life.
And sometimes the waves knock us down.
But you know what? A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor.
Learn from those moments when you’re swimming against the undertow. There are calmer seas on the horizon and they will totally be worth it.
