“Rain with a Chance of Thunder Storms.”
“The roots grow deepest when the wind blows strongest….Denise Linn–Isn’t that the truth… We are always hanging onto something to survive our storms.
Right now I am navigating a turbulent storm; it is not the first, it certainly won’t be the last either, it is one more hurricane of many past.
I know these storms help me grow deeper and stronger wherever I may be standing in my life.
All my rooting and growing helps me from actually being blown away, these extreme weather conditions prepare me for other storms that have yet to come and will come.
Storms can leave scars for sure, but they also help us live amongst the unexpected forecast that is sure to touch down again. Some storms pass very quickly while others seem to go on for many days, even weeks. It can, and does take a toll on the body-mind.
I don’t like when the weather gets out of control it shakes the shit out of my soul, but what I do love after a storm is looking for the rainbow in the sky. It is the exhale, and the AHHHHHH that reminds me that, this too shall pass. I will grow stronger, have deeper roots, and this will afford my safe return to sunny skies.
Such weather experiences develop our character and deepen our spiritual roots. When we grow deep, we too, stand tall.
Deep in their roots, all flowers keep the light. – Theodore Roethke
