Looking Out to Sea

There is something relaxing about looking out to sea. Water can have such a calming effect on us.

Look a little deeper. The sea teaches us much more. The open spaces create a blank canvas to plan and carry out our next moves. It can throw the unexpected towards us, teaching us to thrive in uncertainty. It helps us realise that while we can’t control everything, we can take charge of our own thoughts and actions. We can learn to be ready to anticipate fast-moving change and navigate our way through it.

The end of a working week is a good time to reflect on how we’ve done with whatever life has thrown at us. It’s also a chance to think towards our next challenges, and how we will make the most of them.
