Floating works for a time, but eventually a decision must be made.
Will you peddle agains the waves or with them?
Like strong gusts of wind there are compelling reasons to go with them.
The waves are relentless. You’ll never get a break if you swim counter to the tide.
Conserve the energy needed to resist and put it towards something else.
But if you are carried by the will of the waves what will have mattered most to you is missed.
Being present when your mom needed you.
Calling a friend to make sure they’re ok.
The waves never stop, but at some point a decisions must be made.
