What surfing can teach you about opportunities in life…

My week in pics: Saying goodbye to Medellin, Colombia; interviewing the inspiring Paulina from Huerta De Las Delicias, going surfing with a few peeps, indulging in an incredible experience at Central, rated #4 restaurant in the world; bike tour at sunset, learning Peruvian dances. 

What surfing can teach you about opportunities in life…


Happy Friday!

And greetings from Lima, Peru!

We arrived over the weekend, and I’ve already indulged in some delicious ceviche a few times, been surfing twice, and watched numerous gorgeous sunsets over the water. ‘I think I’m going to like it here.’ (cue: Annie Soundtrack!)

There’s something about being near the water…

In fact, that is what this week’s Happy Friday topic is all about! And more specifically, about waves and opportunities… And, seeing as how so many of you piped up with positive feedback after last week’s video, well, you’re in for a treat! ‘Cause I got another one for you today.

(And for those of you who prefer reading the Happy Friday message, well, I’m going to experiment with video this month, however will have transcriptions available come next week. And we’ll go from there… comments welcome!)



So there you have it. Waves are much like opportunities… you have to have the courage to leave the shore and be willing to work hard to get out to where the good ones are, you have to practice patience in order to wait for the right one for you, and then you gotta set yourself up properly on your board – on your path – stay balanced, and enjoy the ride all the way to shore.

What are your thoughts on the matter? I want to hear from you in the comments below.

Have a FAB week!

Carol - high res




P.S. THANK YOU for all of your comments and kind words after hearing about all of my mishaps last week! Quick update: My arm is healing nicely, I haven’t been flooded in since, AND, my laptop is able to be repaired! YAHOO!!!
