Same Storm, Same Choices, Different Strokes:


In my world, whether a storm disrupts or clears, they are one in the same. A storm is a storm is a storm. As is a path is a path is a path. Good or bad. (Familiar with: "The obstacle is the path." or should I say...The storm is the path) They are both needed to shape you into the person you ought to be. Don't let the perception of a storms intensity move you away from what you have your heart set on. And don't be confused when your faced with a dilemma where you have to decipher whether a storm is a good one or bad one for you. Time will tell and will heal, feelings will be felt and be mended, and truth will always rise. (these are universal truths). Your purpose/path will be actualized if only you can pause long enough to let your first reaction pass. Simply Let the solution build. ("Let the (heart) beat build.")

You see, I used to believe that some storms or situations were either In-line with my path or they weren’t. Today I’m certain they coexist. The only duality is choice. Choosing to accept or not accept, forgive or not forgive, love or not love, live and let live.

It's still your life and it's still your path. We only have one purpose so whether it disrupts your path or clears your path it is still your path to walk. That's where trust comes in. Trust in your faith that you've made the right choices and great things will follow. Choose wrong and guess what... You still get to make the same choices tomorrow.

There are times when you need to look at life with a magnifying glass and other times when you need to bring the focus out and look at the big picture, the full story. Maturity is about learning when these appropriate times are to be discerned.

A tree doesn't grow overnight. And It grew because someone made a choice to believe a seed was all it needed to succeed. And a journey of 1000 miles starts with a single step. And someone had to choose to believe they were capable of running the marathon.

You know, they say you'll meet your problems in another guise down the road if you haven't properly dealt with them. Does that mean we will meet our solutions again later on once we've finished taking care of our business first.? Like they say, if it's right it will be there on the other side.

As a friend stated, "You Can't solve a problem with the same thinking that created it."

We can choose which storms we'd like to entertain, also, obviously. Remember, We always have a choice


Where it gets confusing...

Some storms in life can appear to harm you while others may seem to heal you. Some of the greatest experiences in life comes from overcoming the pain and anguish that come about in any given situation.

depending on my level of perception at the time, it can cause us to choose the path of disruption. I can feel it when I'm not living in harmony. You know the truth by the way it feels.

I had to go to that place to get to this one.

It may give you an actual path

Comes down to choice.

Not everything has to be decided overnight

The answer may be whispered to you through another person

Once we change the way we look at a given storm, the storm that we were looking at changes.

Sometimes you have to take a risk and go the other way

If it's right... It will be there when you get to the other side.
