During a bad storm on the high seas;
a sturdy vessel, good navigation skills,
and a captain in control can make
the necessary difference for survival.
… And there is absolutely no difference when charting and sailing the high seas of your life, most especially when weathering emotional storms that come your way.
(Bear with me here – sometimes it makes a positive difference for all of us to view things from a different perspective.)
“If the vessel, in which you travel (your body) isn’t doing so well, and your emotions are overwhelming you; if you find your thoughts and actions doing daily battle with worries, fearfulness, feeling trapped or defeated and you are unsure of your direction,
think on this …”
one) “YOU” are the captain of your vessel. It is yours to nurture and keep healthy. This makes a huge difference, after all, you would not take a poorly maintained ship out upon the ocean. Eat and drink healthily, and move your body in a healthy manner (exercise) as you can.
two) Your thoughts, emotions and subsequent actions are your “CREW”.
The actions you take in your life come about as the direct result of what you are thinking and feeling – that’s a fact! If your “crew” steering your human vessel isn’t doing well and spending all it’s time reacting to things; then it’s time for you, the captain, to step in and override these poor decisions.
three) Take charge of yourself. You are the captain. Charter your course, (your plans) Determine the direction you want to go (dreams, hopes, desires) and head that way. Make your course strong and clear, in spite of potential stormy weather or bad conditions.
Are you steering in the direction you want to go, adjusting your course as needed until your destination is reached? Never forget, you are the captain (the one who should be in control) at the wheel. If not, now’s the time. Make those course changes.
And never forget – You’re the Captain!
