The Set of Your Sails:
When I was a youngster, I learned some of life’s greatest lessons when I learned to sail:
1st – I had to work at it – practice – adapt – change with the changing sea.
2nd – Never let fear take the helm. Make it an adventure – knowing that no storm lasts forever.
3rd –There is beauty everywhere, regardless of the weather.
4th – Savor every moment – they pass so quickly.
5th – I am the captain. I decide. I choose. It’s my voyage.
‘The set of your sails – and not the gales – determine which way you will go.
May the set of your sails be so, with your Light On!
