Life is amazing, but sometimes it’s hard to acknowledge because of all the sticky situations and terrible nonsense that happens in our lives. But we can all make it through the unexpected situations; we can come out stronger than ever and better equipped for the storms that will inevitably come in our way.
Have you ever looked at a tree that is absolutely beautiful in the spring, but looks pretty ugly during the winter? That’s because the tree is not in season. Remember that you’re just not seeing fruit during the winter of your life, but spring will come eventually. Trust that it will all come together in the end, even if you can’t see it now. Your life isn’t dead; it just might be dormant for the time being. Hang in there – things are going to work out.
We are all waiting for something – a new job, a partner, a phone call, another chance. What we are waiting for is not as important as what happens to us while we are waiting because sometimes who we become and what we learn in the process of waiting is what truly shows us the way. Be patient. Waiting is not punishment – it’s preparation.
If you keep trying to make the same thing work out, but time after time, it fails. Perhaps you need to try something new. Sometimes things don’t work out because they’re not supposed to. Change your plans. Stop trying to force the situation with the wrong tactics. There is a reason it isn’t working out.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass … It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
