I cannot control the ocean, just as I cannot control everything that happens in my life… Some days, nature gives us waves, and others, there aren’t any. Surfing taught me how to make the most of what’s given to you in life.” Weston Borg
In this three-and-a-half-minute video, Weston Borg uses surfing as a metaphor for life. As he shares, “You can’t choose when the waves come. There is nothing to predict, so you’re left to slowing your thoughts down and focusing on the current moment.”
As much as we may seek more control or predictability, it’s in surrendering to what is- and working with that- which enables us to flow with less effort and more harmony through life. By paying attention to our sensory awareness- like sounds, smells, and feelings- we open ourselves to the wonders present in the current moment.
If you would like to experience more flow and harmony in your life, we invite you to explore some of the ICWIB! art activities and videos for FREE. These self-awareness building activities are a fun and simple way to calm the mind, cultivate sensory awareness and stay balanced while surfing the ever-changing tides of life. These activities can also be shared with children, to help them navigate transitions with greater ease.
