Embrace the Chaos

I believe that there's a fine line between stress and excitement. That fine line is our attitude. Life can be chaotic, with an amazing assortment of hurdles, some small, some big, thrown at us daily. We must build our internal energy up so that we are able to face these challenges with a smile. Define your purpose. Live for the mission. Focus. I use the analogy that the challenges we face are like a huge wave which threaten to drown us if we simply continue dog paddling in place. We must grab the surfboard of faith, confidence, determination, and joy and ride that wave. We can't tell exactly how far we'll ride, or where we'll be when the ride is over. All we can do is enjoy the rush as it happens.
