I went out into the sea the other day to surf, and the rip current was so powerful, that I ended up hardly leaving the shore. After a build up of anxiety, I ended up feeling deflated that I couldn’t catch a single wave. Fail. So often I try things a second, third, fourth time and have high expectations of myself… surely I should be able to do something if I’ve done it before? Yet, when these expectations aren’t met, I can’t help but feel frustrated. The sun was radiating, I was with an incredible guy, I was happy and healthy… so I chose to focus on the moment and body-surfed my heart out. Expectations melted away and I was left laughing and gliding and genuinely happier. Let’s let go of what we think we ‘should’ be, to leave space to simply be. Success.
