I was driving home the other day from the gym with a million things on my mind. Out the window I notice that the sky was getting darker by the second. Rain started to fall and you could feel the rumbling thunder.
This scene kinda reflected how I was feeling. There was doom on the horizon. Many pending storms coming and I wasn’t sure how the heck I would make it to the other side.
Sometimes I power through it and emerge victorious on the other side. Sometimes I come out the other side damaged.
That is how I saw seeing these challenges on the horizon. I was too locked into what was in front of me to realize the obvious. So many times we only see one way, the path that is directly ahead.
I turned 90 degrees to mostly sunny and clear skies.
There is always an option. It might be a little obscured behind something but there is always another way. There are always options.
It is never as dark as it seems.
Find the joy.
I have a choice. I can stay in the storm or find a way through.
