Smooth Sailing
April 22, 2009

Imagine a life without any difficulties. No need to stress on bills, deadlines and weight. No need to rush. Hakuna Matata, you may say. But, can you call a worry-free life to be the life?

All of us, even Oprah Winfrey and Warren Buffett, have experienced tough times and bottom hell moments. Challenges are inevitable. It is the ultimate SAT of our life. It is the ultimate test of our faith.

We have to sail though rough waters, colossal waves, and head on intense winds. There is no other way to learn navigation, but through an actual journey. It is not smooth sailing all the time, for that would make our life hollow and futile.

The different facets of life cannot be simulated. We have to experience pain to feel healing. We have to face defeats to enjoy victories. We have to suffer chaos to appreciate harmony in mind and spirit.

This is the very essence of life. After each storm, summer awaits. Welcoming us with calm waters, tranquil waves and warm winds.

The Hump, is a joint project of me and Louie. I provide the photos, and she gives the words to them. And, why do we do it? It’s really simple. We just want people to have another perspective on Wednesdays. Just like a hump in the road, Wednesdays should be a time for people to slow down from their fast-paced life.

There’s a Hump ahead. It’s your choice what to do with it.
