Hey readers! Although i haven’t really ever asked you guys but if you ever have any recommendations or suggestions on other quotes or other ways to write let me know in the comment section! Now we can officially get to the quote.

Have you ever heard of some one named Jon Kabat-Zinn? Well before hearing about his quote i haven’t, but he is actually pretty fascinating! Jon Kabat-Zinn is an American professor, emeritus of medicine, and the creator of the Stress Reduction Clinic and the Center for Mindfulness in Medicine, Health Care, and Society at the University of Massachusetts Medical School. Currently, he is 76 years old.

Now that we know who the author of our quote is, let’s get started with talking about the actual quote. “You can’t stop the waves, but you can learn to surf.” The reason i like this quote is because there will always be some recurring challenges in life. But the hard thing is that most people don’t understand that they have to learn to go with the flow of things and learn how to compete against those problems.

Once you are able to do that and you have some patience, you can go through almost anything because you know how to deal with it now!

You can't stop the waves, but you an learn to surf
