In the ocean of life all of our emotions are waves and we choose which ones to ride and the ones we allow to hit the beach untouched…

I was painting away yesterday with the radio on when a line from a song permeated my creative fog; ‘I’m going to pick up the pieces and build a Lego house and if things go wrong I can knock it down’ and this set off a train of thought and here it comes.

Stuff happens; people do things that affect other people, governments mess-up, companies make difficult decisions, we have unseasonal weather, health issues crop up, we lose loved ones, close friends move to the other side of the world and the list goes on and on. We choose how we react though. When the shock has subsided we choose the main emotion to carry from any given situation. We choose, so therefore we have a choice. With that belief when the next challenge comes along, as it most assuredly will, we have a choice.

We choose which wave to ride.

    I absolutely love that your mind is grabbed by the words of a song and lead off in a whole new adventure. I think it’s where your creativity lives. 🙂
