“A smooth sea never made a skillful sailor” – English Proverb
I’m drawn to all things water, which is why the “a smooth sea…” proverb speaks to me. I, like anyone, suffer from lack of confidence and the occasional thought that I’m not going to make it. During these times, I need to remember, it’s life’s struggles that really shape who we become. If everything was easy, we would never have the chance to grow from mistakes. Failure can be the best motivation if we choose to learn from it.
When I’m low I will remember this proverb… so bring on the rough seas! I’m ready!
