“Life is like skiing. The goal is not to get to the bottom of the hill. It’s to have a bunch of good runs before the sun sets.”
—Seth Godin, American author and former dot com business executive
Do you or have you participated in winter activities such as skiing or sledding? Although I tried my hand at skiing in my late teens and made it down a few bunny slopes, sledding was my thing as a kid.
When our wintry prayers were answered for snow days, I was out the door with my friends to visit venues we named Suicide Hill and Dead Man’s Drop.
As fast as we would race down each run, we would immediately dart right back up each incline again and again, holding on tight to our flexible flyers, snowboards, and toboggans.
We couldn’t get enough and only frozen toes, growling stomachs, and looming darkness would have us head home.
How many good runs have you had in your life? What intentions and actions are you planning and taking to make the most of every day you wake up to see the sun?
