Tides are caused by the gravitational pull of the moon and the sun on the Earth and her oceans. Their constant cycles are predictable and dependable. Even though we may be about 75% water, the pull of the tides do not affect us. However, that is not to say that our lives do not have their highs and lows.
The ebb and flow of life can’t be put on a schedule; it is constantly in a dynamic state of motion. Change is inevitable, no matter how hard you try to sit still, so why not take back some of your control? Why not create movement for yourself rather than waiting for it to find you? The phrase “Good things come to those who wait” is fine when applied to teaching the virtue of patience, but when it comes to building a life you love, we must replace that phrase with “Good things come to those who work their asses off and never give up.”
