The eye of the storm…

You’ve heard about the eye of the storm being calm, right? It’s hard to imagine any part of a hurricane being calm. I always think about that when life gets crazy. There are times in life that it feels like everything around you is going crazy. If you aren’t careful you will allow everything going on to stress you. It will cave in on you and suffocate you. You’ll be angry. You’ll say stuff you don’t mean. You’ll lose yourself. But if you remain peaceful, the storm around you won’t change you.

In tough times I have to ask myself tough questions. What does it benefit me to stress? What does it benefit me to walk around upset? What does it benefit me to isolate myself from friends and family? There are no benefits to stress and worry. It steals from your energy and it makes your situation worse. On the other hand, if you’re at peace you will attract more peace. Your smile will attract more smiles. Your laughter will make others laugh. With your head up and a smile on your face you will attract blessings. Your demeanor will confuse the enemy and you’ll survive the storm.

There are always lessons that you can’t overlook. Pay attention to anything you may have done to cause this storm in your life. If it’s not of your doing, learn from it anyways. Let the storms in life make you wiser. Don’t go through a tough time just to go through it.

How many storms have you gone through in life? You’re still standing. This too shall pass. Embrace the struggle and keep going.

  1. 100% in agreement, keeping your head in tough times requires much practice in understanding what’s truly in your control. So when life throws the curve ball, ask yourself what is within my control and what is not. Once you have delineated this concept within your mind, one can move forward appropriately.
