riding the waves

being a mommy to Olin is like riding the waves of the most beautiful ocean i have ever seen.

i feel like i am learning to surf. some days are more challenging than others. waves come in all different sizes and with different levels of strength. sometimes i fall off my surf board and other days i ride while doing a handstand. most days its somewhere in between.

realizing that i was learning to surf meant that i had to surrender to her vastness and beauty. no longer was i in charge, i had to let go of any ideas about being in control…surrendering meant going that much deeper into myself and seeking the courage to run into the ocean and try and try again until i finally caught the first wave.

i love these waves I’m on. thank you, thank you life for this gift and these lessons i long for.
