LIFE IS LIKE SAILING ON A BOAT….SET YOUR SAILS CAREFULLY

Life is like sailing on a boat.
You can sit and simply drift
through life with no direction
and let the wind determine your destination.
Or you can plan your destination,
listen to what the wind and the water
are telling you,
and set sail toward your goal.
Remember, though,
it is how you set the sails,
not the direction of the wind,
that determines which way
you will go.
You can use any wind
to go in any direction,
so set your sails carefully
and travel not to escape life
but for life not to escape you.

  1. This is a lovely poem, and I agree, especially about listening to the water and the wind. Nature will talk to us if we are silent long enough to listen.
