A lot of people are going through some very challenging (I like to think of them as “lesson-rich”) times right now.
I saw this quote from wordsmith.org that seemed to fit the situation fairly well:
“Should you shield the canyons from the windstorms you would never see the true beauty of their carvings.” -Elisabeth Kubler-Ross, psychiatrist and author (1926-2004)
So if windstorms are howling all around you right now, may they soon expose even more of the beuaty of your spirit.
One great thing about windstorms–even the most fierce–is that sooner or later they blow over.
Anchor yourself to your spirit and nothing can blow you away. It can keep your feet on the ground when the winds are howling, give you wings to soar when gentle breezes return, light your way in the darkness, warm you when the world seems so cold, and help you to connect with others in wonderfully deep and powerful ways.
