No matter how careful we are.
No matter how well we plan.
We never know what lies down the next bend on this journey of ours.
We never know what curve ball that is heading our way.
How deep we would be tossed into the cold waters
Oh how high into the winds it would flip us.
Nevertheless, in all these uncertainties
There are rudders and life buoys that helps us steer and keeps us afloat
These are the things that we must always hold on to in our life aid kit.
For day to day, we never know when we will need each of these things.
