I had the pleasure of introducing our Uruguayan neighbors to canoeing today. They had never been in a boat, let alone paddled one. What I quickly realized was the only thing that truly mattered was their understanding of the necessity of staying in the middle of the boat. The paddling I could handle on my own, but if they leaned to one side or the other, we would be (literally) sunk.
So often, I forget the importance of staying centered. I get carried away with forward moment and forget that I must stay centered in order to avoid drowning.
How to we remember to stay centered in our daily lives?
