‘Kiss the Rock’ is an expression that comes from canoeing/kayaking. It refers to paddling a whitewater river and hitting a rock broadside. Most people’s instinct would be to lean away from the rock, but the correct thing to do is to lean over toward the rock and allow the current to lift the boat toward one side or the other.
In life, we can try to resist the obstacles and challenges in our way, or we can Kiss the Rock to embrace our challenges, and let them push us forward.
