No matter what happens in the next twenty-four hours, I’m reminding myself that we only have now. Living in the moment has always been the best way to truly stay happy. Sip your hot beverage, enjoy the view, breathe and think about the things in your life you are grateful for. This little technique always helps when I get anxious about the future.
If you were a gentleman, once you finished your race and paddled out of view, you were expected to put away your boat and oars and then quietly rejoin the rest of society, cleaned up and dressed in your jacket and tie.
And if you were a proper lady, you didn’t row at all.
