January 22, 2021 – Day 22


Sometimes life feels like you’ve been caught in the undertow – and if you evern been caught in the undertow, you know what I mean.

I was body surfing in Ocean City – I was in college at the time and I got knocked off my feet – I was spinning and I had no idea which was was up. Then I heard a calm voice inside my head telling me – “This is how people die.”

I love that voice (or should I say I LoVe ThAt VoIcE) But it was right. In one of the spins I felt the sand/bottom with my shoulder and the next time I hit it I stood straight up and stood as stiff as I could.

I was like a block down the beach, and the people I was with had no idea what had happened until I self corrected.

Sometimes you have to find that solid point and make a stand – or drown in the madness around you.

Today’s Prompt: Roll with it until you can make a stand.
