All at sea

All at sea

The year of 2008 was an interesting year. On the whole it was a bit rough but good. My Mum was diagnosed with Cancer and I started a business all about the same time. Both those things are tricky and emotionally challenging.

I felt like a small boat on the ocean. While I, the small boat, had chosen to go out to sea, I didn’t feel like I had much control. Life was a wild and rough at points like a storm, then other times it felt like a big down pour but without the waves; like the ocean was dead flat but pouring with rain. And other times it was sunny and beautiful and gentle.

2009 feels good so far. It’s like a big rolling sea but there are no white caps right now. I don’t feel like I can control where my boat is going right now; I’m not concerned about it though. I’m rolling on the swells and keeping an eye out for what might be on the way – good or otherwise.

I feel a little alone in my boat. I’d like someone else there but not sure how, who, or why they would be. God is there somewhere; maybe he is driving the boat or something. I feel like I’m just sitting up front looking out and not really concerned about the boat itself. I’m sure the boat will be fine and can take nearly everything that comes its way.
I guess we will see where the tide will take me
