It has been a while since I have last shared a thought with you all; it could be because I was in the middle of a storm.  So here we go thanks in advance for listening to my story…

A storm is any disturbed state of an astronomical body's atmosphere, especially affecting its surface, and strongly implying severe weather. It may be marked by strong wind, thunder and lightning, heavy precipitation, such as ice, or wind transporting some substance through the atmosphere.  Storms generally lead to significant negative impacts to lives and property, such as storm surge, heavy rainslightningwildfires, and vertical wind shear and more.

If you noticed nowhere does it say storms are positive, beneficial and/or helpful?  Storms happen for a reason, something caused the storm to occur it did not just happen.  Storms take place in the atmosphere/environment but also in our personal lives.  I know you have gone through and still may be going through the following storms: financial, emotional, educational, career, family, spiritual etc.  Each of these storms have a reason and plays a role in the development of the individual who is directly impacted. 

The only way to get through the storm is to be a “Palm Tree” and stand… a palm tree lives in the most sever climates from rainforest to desserts and come in all different shapes and sizes.  Palm trees prevail in all storms no matter the force and this is why… Palm trees roots are as deep as they are tall (60’ tall tree = 60’ deep into the earth).  The reason I am sharing this with you is because no matter the storm you have to stand like a “Palm Tree” and blow side to side back and forth but most importantly you must stand!  One must be deeply rooted in whatever it is they believe in and realize this storm is temporary and will past and when it does pass you will be stronger than you were when the storm hit. 

This all goes back to your passion…when you have a passion in your life you will find life becomes more exciting.  Whether your passion is your career, your partner, your family or a combination of all, you will find it easier to get out of bed in the morning as you have lots to look forward to.  Once you find your passion one will start to live their passion.

Remember “I am a tree, I am plated and I will continue to stand and not leave”.
