Escaping Paralysis


It is your decision to choose.

It was my first time surfing yesterday and one of my classmates was a 78 year old woman. Everyone there was babying her. During one of our breaks she came up to me and thanked me. She thanked me for not “babying” her. In reality, I was just trying to avoid her. She talked to me about her younger years and how she never did anything. She had soooo many opportunities but she decided to not go for them….out of fear. She use to live a pessimistic life. The last thing she said to me before she went out to surf.

"You can either choose to be happy or be sad….And one day I slapped myself in the face and told myself to get out there. To live. "

She left this world yesterday.
