Day 30 - Surfing

Life can really suck sometimes.

Unless you are a young child, or hopelessly senile, or in a coma, you have no choice but to suffer stress and disappointment and mean people. These are usually things that you have no control over.

The trick is to not fight the suck. Fighting it just makes things worse. Just accept what comes your way. Don't try to wish or complain it away. It's reality. Go with it.

I was reminded of this today while re-reading one of my favorite books. It says:
You can't stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.
Running helps me ride the waves of life. So does yoga.
If you find yourself raging against the surf, find something that does that for you.

Find your surf board.

Numbers: 1.2 easy miles and some well deserved stretching.
