Imagine yourself the captain of a boat with a group of friends and family. You are caught out in a torrential storm of epic proportions. You’ve never seen anything like it in all of your years sailing amongst the waves. Amid the midst, rain, hail, and confusion, you see a titanic wave that you know will surely swallow your small boat and crew whole and push you to the deepest depths of the seaa where the souls of sailors of yore reside.
Everyone on the boat screams that you should turn the boat around at full throttle and try to outrun the wave. Your own weary mind starts playing the odds of whether you’d survive or not. Everyone on board begs you to turn around before it is too late.
But, your heart, soul, and every fibre of your being tells you to go full throttle straight into the waive and crest its top before it collapses on your small ship. Your family and friends begin to pull you away from the captains next, but you manage to fight them off. You look straight into the depths of the unforgiving wall that approaches like a lioness, quiet but deadly.
It is here that start the steadfast approach begins. The banging on the captains nest doors and screams do not distract your unending stare. It’s you against the wave. You know it is too late to turn around. You know in your heart that the only way to overcome this wave is to go over it.
There will be times in your life when only you will know what is best for you. Friends and family, though meaning well, will not always know what is right for you. Use their wisdom to help guide your way, but make your own decisions and carve your own path on this crazy planet.
In Episode 9 of Kilos of Craic, Brian F., Dr. Don, and I discuss everything from Hurricane Irma devastation to the movie “IT”. Dr. Don gives us a review of “IT” after we discuss the sheer destruction that covered Florida’s land mass. We talk about traffic leading up to Irma. Dr. Don talks about replacing the ball joints on his VW Beetle. The lot of us laugh about being pulled over in our younger years. Dr. Don and I argue about the necessity of Masters Degrees and the lack of Common Sense in Academia. I call Pit Bulls stupid, Dr. Don defends them, and Brian laughs. It was a great show. Check back often for the latest Episode of Kilos of Craic.
