We have seen recently an incredible super storm, a hurricane call Sandy. My thoughts and prayers are for the afterhours and for all the people who lived the super storm.
But sometimes I think of all the rest of us who have to go through life and experience a Super Storm. It is when all our lives are shaken and we are moved from head to toes to think, to do, to see and perceive things differently and after this storm we are transformed, we are different.
In my life I have lived many hurricanes that had made me grow and understand life better, for many people is not “nice” or ‘safe” because life moves you and takes you from your safety place to become more.
Many of us prefer to stay where we are and see the clouds go by and see the day turn into night and the night into day, the days into months and years, and they are still the same, unmoved. Last year, I went to a self grow seminar and I learned that we are like trees, a tree grows and keeps growing, but when we cut the tree, the tree dies.
We all have lived through pain, and negative or bad experiences that in a way has “injured” us or cut us, we prefer to hold that pain instead of letting it go and keep moving forward. We prefer to blame someone instead of admitting that is our fault and we are responsible of what happen. And when years go by we are stuck in the same situation and in a way we start dying.
Nature as well as our Source play a very important part in our life, sometimes we need this tough experiences to move us in to action and to wake us up. To give thanks that we are alive, no matter in which circumstance we are, we are alive and breathing. And believe it or not, God will provide. A new day will always come and we will always have tomorrow to do things better or right.
It is painful to lose someone in a Natural disaster, or to lose your parents or a member of a family, or to lose everything, but if we are still here, it means that we still have things to do, learn and the most important task of all, we need to become. It will take time to heal and to be in our feet, but as long as you are breathing, as long as you have a new day, things will get better and we need to have FAITH and BELIEVE that everything is going to be alright.
I learned this kind of the hard way, but after having few hurricanes in my life, now I know that the best thing is to always be thankful and grateful for every single good thing that happens to you today. I lived many days and months in a very harsh situation, with 2 little boys. Alone without my family around, and “no one” to depend on, I had to see and feed, pay rent and provide for my family. For me my ex husband’s excused of I don’t have money, doesn’t exist in my vocabulary, God provides and those days where I didn’t know where the money was going to come to pay rent or to put food on my table to feed my boys, came, always came, and it still does. And every day I make sure to thank God, or my Source, for being able to provide for my family without any help of my kids’ dad. Miracles happen if you believe and have faith.
I had to learn it, it doesn’t matter how strong or dreadful is your storm, we can always get up and move forward. We can be tired or hurt and we might need a break. Take a break and rest, get your strength back and move forward because you will always have tomorrow and a brand new day to live, to hope, to wish for a better tomorrow. Nothing last forever and there is ALWAYS light at the end of the tunnel.
And when there is hope, we can still make it and you will make it! I’m sure.
In the middle of the storm or in the eye of the hurricane we need to be calm, with our feet well grounded on the floor, our head clear to think and our heart full of hope and strength to do and solve what we need to do. Ask for help, connect with your source, to God, He will always deliver and lead the way.
My thoughts and prayers go for those who lived this Hurricane. May God guide you, protect you and give you strength in what you need to solve and live. Many blessings for you and your family and may God keep you safe today and always.
