When It Rains, It Pours, And That's Okay
Aug 06, 2019
"It's only when it rains that we grow."
I heard this yesterday in a song and it stuck with me until this morning when I woke up to the showers outside my window. Maybe it will stick with you too and fertilize your thoughts for the day. <3
Often when we describe the challenges of our lives we use phrases like "the storms of our lives" or "when it rains, it pours".
What I've come to realize over the years of working with the strongest, most-inspirational, live-embracing, changemakers, is that despite experiencing the weather-of-our-lives, just like everybody else, they look at the storm as a component of growth to the seeds they've planted instead of a determent to the garden they were enjoying (or often, not enjoying).
None of us are immune to life and none of us our immune to rain. What if instead of resisting, rejecting, and revolting against a little storm from time to time, we reimagined how we looked at these periods of time as an important component to our ongoing growth?
I mean, only if you want to grow. ;)
