laird hamilton’s life lessons

• “The ocean’s vastness reminds you of your insignificance. It’s like a grounder. It’s been around long before people got here and will be here long after. It teaches humility.”
“The ocean reminds you that you’re not in control. It’s in control when you’re in it. The sooner you embrace that, the easier it will be in other aspects of your life.”
• “The ocean is non-judgmental. It doesn’t differentiate between you and the next guy. We’re all equal before a wave.”

Just a little reminder for myself today.
