"Feelings are much like waves, we can't stop them from coming, but we can choose which one we surf"
We all have emotions, some positive and some negative. Depending on your personality you are in favour
of some emotions or you try to hide them.
One thing is for sure, we all have them and we can not delete them. But what we can do, is learn to master them, observe them and then decide if we want to connect with that emotion. Sometimes emotions can be so overwhelming that they strike us down, and sometimes we are ignoring and suppressing them as if they do not exist.
Well, emotions are like waves, you can really see them coming and even more you can choose which one you want to surf. Pick wisely and see where it will lead you. You do not have to surf on every emotion, some waves you can just observe and let them pass. Pick the waves that suits your day and outcome of the day or that emotion you would like to explore. And when you have decided the wave you will surf, do it graceful and in full awareness.
You can tell yourself while looking at a big wave; so beautiful this one I will surf on or this one I let pass because it's not how I want to surf today. You are the surfer and you can decide which wave you choose to surf. There are no bad or good waves they come and go with the tide, it is up to you to decide which wave to surf to get you where you want to be.
Enjoy the waves and enjoy the surfing!
