Greetings from Las Olas Mexico,
This week, I’m experiencing the very best part of my job – I’m on the beach at Las Olas watching future surfer girls catch wave after wave.
I still remember my first waves. In fact, the year I learned to surf changed my life. That simple step onto a surfboard encouraged me to take a leap of faith- to change my career and launch Las Olas Surf Safaris for Women.
At dinner, I heard stories of how gliding across the wave turned fear into joy (truly hilarious conversation over chili rellenos, by the way). The Las Olas alum across the table shared that she finally left a stressful career and is now happy doing things she loves. In some way, surfing gave her clarity.
Clarity? Sure, if viewed correctly, surfing gives focus. In the end, it’s really three parts – first there’s paddling, then taking the wave, and finally, standing up. The reward is profound.
I know that many of us have been paddling hard in our lives for too long. Standing up to take the first wave seems daunting, so it’s easy to come up with reasons why it won’t happen. But it can, and it may be the best decision ever.
So now is the time. Take your wave. MORE
What a job to have!!
There couldn’t be a better teacher on how to take charge of life and make it work!
