Six ways whitewater rafting is like life:
1) The obstacles create the ride.
2) Rapids are usually followed by periods of calm waters, and vice versa. Just expect it.
3) Teamwork is essential to negotiate the tricky parts.
4) The best time comes from a balance of prudence and fun. (Yup, that’s me with my pink helmet o’ prudence!)
5) Stay present in the moment, or you may miss something important.
