This is a quote that can be used in many situations but has special importance to me because I first heard it when my director shared this with a coworker who was dying of mesothelioma. She died a few months later. We can't always control the wind, but we can direct our sails.
This is what your parents don't teach you growing up: that everything is a learning experience, even for them. That things change. That sometimes a decision is a wrong one. That there's no handbook or manual for life, and that there's no right or wrong way to live your life. And that thing we call 'living life' is just making it up as you go.
