Sometimes you just gotta get wet

I’ll admit it- I’ve had my ups and downs these past few weeks. It was this time last year that I was caring for my terminally ill mom and so there are a lot of thoughts and images running wild in my head. Understandably, my activity level took a nosedive and my wetsuit has remained very dry indeed.

It’s easy to get lazy and make up excuses as to why you can’t get out and bodyboard (or do whatever activity you do), but today – though I’ve had three totally shit night’s sleep in a row, all ending on the sofa – I put my hair in piggies and suited up.

And you know what? I had fun.
Sometimes you just gotta get wet, even when you just want to sit at home drinking coffee and dicking around on the internet.

Today’s lesson: Videos of cats will still be on Youtube when you get back from bodyboarding, but waves? Waves disappear.
