Life is often very complex, but for me riding its waves is always more important than resisting them. Acceptance is key!

Recently my mother passed away from a year and half long battle with brain cancer. Of course it’s been very difficult for me, but death is inevitable.

It has been and still is hard to believe what has been happening, although in the end I know I need to keep riding the wave that is life.
