If you were to take a spyglass and look out across the ocean as you set sail on your great voyage, you would no doubt see darkened skies ahead, casting an ominous shadow over choppy, swirling waters, all looming in the distance, threatening to throw you off course, threatening to capsize you. And they very well may; the wind may blow at your sails from all different directions, a rogue wave may suddenly approach and throw you overboard.
But do not despair. Though your vessel may float on the water’s surface in pieces around you, you can still grab hold of a part of the wreckage and paddle yourself to shore. And if that is stripped from you, you can always swim. As long as there is land in sight, you can always find a way to make it ashore.
Unless you can’t swim. In that case, I hope you’re a fast learner.
