Ride of a Lifetime

I went to a presentation yesterday in which someone compared a long-term project to a roller coaster ride. He emphasized the need to just go with it. While this is a comparison we’ve all heard – many times, probably – it somehow struck me in a deeper way yesterday. The point was less about expecting “ups and downs” and more about surrendering to the ride with a sense of acceptance and grace, rather than one of resistance and panic.  This made me think of the soothing voice of Mary Maddox over at Meditation Oasis.  I continue to keep her guided meditation podcasts loaded up on my phone.  If you’re interested, you can listen to one here.
