For a few years now, I have fought the notion that life is really just one great big roller coaster ride. I learned to almost hate the highs because I knew it meant the lows would be there shortly. I wanted there to be some sort of balance and I was more than willing to give up the incredible highs if it meant I wouldn’t have to face the lows.
It didn’t work though. Ya know why?
Because that just simply is not who I am.
I am passionate about everything around me, both the good and the bad.
And ya know what else?
I LIKE THAT ABOUT ME!
Fighting the roller coaster is a bit like trying to fight the huge waves when you are swimming down in the gulf. Every now and then you are going to get hit, and get hit hard! If you panic and fight it, you may very well drown. But if you relax and just be, you will find the wave bringing you right back up to the top.
Eventually you just finally figure out how to hang on and enjoy the ride!
