There’s a law of sailing in the high seas.
“When the paths of a big ship and a small ship cross at sea, it is always the smaller, more maneuverable ship that gives way.”
And the same is true of Life!
I read this many years ago. And as I read it and thought about it, I realized it applied to our relationships, our professions, most everything over time. But I also realized that giving in doesn’t always mean giving up or losing. It just means that you have to find a different route to where you wanted to reach, maybe at a different time which is more opportune.
It led me to a corollary of the law…
“Also, it is the smaller, more powerful, more aware pilot ship that tugs the big one safely into harbor.”
Sail happy, sail free!
