Drive the Boat

It’s either
all we do is live 
until we die
or all we do
is die slowly
your choice.

If life is an ocean, and you’re in a boat, are you driving the boat, or are you just flowing to wherever the ocean takes you? Of course, sometimes the fact that you’re driving doesn’t matter; the ocean will still take you where it wants. And sometimes, when the current it strong, fighting it will only waste your energy. I guess what I’m saying is that the same life strategy doesn’t work for all situations. I guess what I’m saying is that despite not having control over our whole lives, we do have control over some parts. I guess what I’m saying is, drive the boat. Steer when it’s time to steer, and coast when it’s time to coast.
