As I sit here typing this, it’s pouring down rain outside. The wind is howling and whipping away at the flags outside my office. It’s almost like the sky is crying its eyes out at nature because it needs cleansing. Sometimes I think nature is more intelligent than we are. It has a way of getting rid of the toxins and starting fresh while we don’t always learn from its lessons. The cars passing by are slowing down because of how hard the rain is coming down. You can almost see the temperatures drop by the way people are reacting. No matter what the rain produces, there appears to be a lull happening. It’s a lot like the premise of Calm Before the Storm.
I used to hear this phrase all the time and didn’t think much about it, but over the years, I’ve learned the significance of this statement. We all have moments in our lives that lead up to perfect storms. One of the issues I’m dealing with is how to handle being let down on so many different topics. You see, so many years have passed by that I have continuously tried to make some good changes in my life. Some of them have been very good changes, while others feel like I’m stagnant. In many ways, it’s almost like the calm before the storm with different scenarios.
My gut has been a good indicator throughout most of my life when things are getting ready to take on a pivotal change. It’s been screaming at me lately that things are in the process of changing in a revolving way. Whether it’s going to be good changes or not is anyone’s guess.
Today’s blog is going to be short and sweet. It’s almost the weekend, and with the weekend comes the opportunity to wind down from a crazy week. And in many ways, my week has felt like life is evolving. So my thought for you this weekend is two things. The first one is that if your gut is screaming at you that things are about to change, brace yourself. Usually, your gut is right on the money. And the second thing is to try not to worry so much about the things that are changing and embrace the changes. Not all changes are bad. In fact, some are actually positive. We’re all learning to do things differently. Money is tight, people’s tempers are short, and all of us are experiencing levels of frustration.
As the weekend begins, I hope you’re able to enjoy the time with your family and loved ones. Don’t worry about the storms coming in but prepare for them. Not all storms are physical; some are emotional. It’s up to us how we embrace the changing storms. Have a great weekend, everyone.
