A Longer Runway

I really wish I still lived within walking distance of the Pacific Ocean. Growing up on the coast of Oregon was great for many reasons, but being near the ocean was definitely in the top 5. 

There is something very calming and soothing about the water, about knowing that we are part of a vast universe. There's life everywhere being lived around us and under us. The Earth shifts and changes, ocean life moves under the waves, the sun comes up and goes down, everything moves, sometimes imperceptibly but it goes forward.

It's something important to remember - life does move forward. Even when it seems like you're stuck, even when it feels like you're actually going backward, you are moving and growing. Going backward is quite often the process by which you get a longer runway to take the leap forward. Be patient.
