Life is like a boat.
And if it is a boat, there is but a few things we can do.
We can let the waves of time toss us in every way in the sea of people. Or we can take the wheel and steer in whatever direction we choose. Or we can forget about all those plans we think are right for us, surrender everything and let the Captain himself at his rightful place at the wheel and let Him guide is in the direction that He has so prepared for us.
If you’re curious, the first words are from a track in the Bleach soundtrack, the first ending theme.
