Keep the bow into the wind

Keeping yourself on the straight path.

Retaining your primary course.

Periodically you have to go off route a smidgen if the seas get a bit turbulent.  Now there is often risk in going head on into the waves, likewise it may be just as menacing if you are going with them.  In addition, you never know when a rogue wave is going to come and try to bump you off track.  Just when you think everything is working as it should, BAM! Out of nowhere you’ve taken on too much water, to where the bilge pumps can in no way keep up with the rush.

All you can do is formulate a plan for the worst, but not so much as to shield yourself in fear of the unknowns of life.

Keep your head up in confidence and always keep your bow pointed into the wind.

    Great post 🙂 Lol I have to remind myself of this about 7 times a week at least.. and it’s really encouraging when you start to notice the changing waters about you and horizon in front of you. Helps to keep that confidence high.
