How Dragonboating is a Metaphor for Life

First things first, if you don't know what dragon boating is then go check out this LINK. It's okay, we'll wait!

Okay, now that we're all together again, I've been thinking about how dragon boating is a lot like life. Here are a few of those thoughts.
  1. It's not intuitive and it feels weird
  2. Just when you think you've got it figured out, you realize your doing it wrong or forgot something
  3. It takes a lot of people to do it properly, if they work together; if they don't you're just crawling
  4. Your heart is exposed to your partner when you're doing it right
  5. Most of the time you need to look forward and let the tiller take care of things
  6. It's important to use the buddy system
  7. Some days are better than others but most anytime on the boat is good
  8. Everybody needs to brace the boat when someone's going to stand up
  9. If you're on the water, you're going to get wet
  10. If you think too just doesn't work!
