Life is like weather, you will have sunny days and you will have storms.
Storms may take all that you have and leave you completely barren. So you’re forced to be resourceful or to move on.
Some storms may leave you with material to build something new.
There are times when I struggle with holding on rather than getting swept away.
I tell myself to weather the storm rather than taking cover, because knowing how to deal with the storm will have made me better.
But some days, I just don’t have the energy to find hope in a blade of grass.
To pretend it’s steel and able to hold the weight of my thoughts and feelings.
Some days I just want to float or see where the storm will carry me.
Sometimes I want to drown.
Other times I build a raft with a sail , ride the wave and go adventuring.
I could say that storms are horrible things but I know I’m better from them.
This storm is changing me. Making me patient and giving me strength.
Storms are necessary.
