Watch Out For The Rapids and Be Prepared to Steer…

Quotes and Notes #301, September 1

“Life is like the river, sometimes it sweeps you gently along and sometimes the rapids come out of nowhere.”—Emma Smith—

Enjoy the peaceful water

“We may be floating on Tao, but there is nothing wrong with steering. If Tao is like a river, it is certainly good to know where the rocks are.”—Ming-Dao Deng—

When things are flowing along well, enjoy it, don’t worry about the rocks that you know will show up sooner or later, but do be on the lookout for them. Be prepared to steer with skill and determination.

Sometimes the rocky water and the rapids can be quite a bit of fun to navigate. If we pay attention, we can find good even through the hard times. Optimism is a practiced attitude.

Share a smile with someone who is steering through the rocks.
Everything is going to be all right.
John P. Schulz—“Sweetie Drives on Chemo Days.”
