Do you ever come across a quotes, a movie, or a song that simply; speaks to you? Like the very message within it was carried to your ear or your eye at exactly the moment in your life where you needed to hear it? And maybe having heard this one particular phrase, it cued something inside you; triggering something as powerful as an avalanche that builds and builds until it, until you; are an unstoppable force?
What cued this avalanche for me today? Simple. A small spot of drizzle from a passing sun-shower on my window. It reminded me of a quote that I encountered a decade ago:
“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.”
Vivian Greene AUTHOR, MOTIVATIONAL SPEAKER
And that quote reminded me of another, relevant and equally empowering:
“Fate whispers to the warrior, ‘You cannot withstand the storm.’ The warrior whispers back, ‘I am the storm.’”
I AM The Storm – Austin Gentry
Today, I want you to recognize that you are that avalanche. That power you sometimes tap into – it is always there, it is always yours. You are always that unstoppable force. You are always capable of unleashing that awesome power. The true challenge can come in using this consciousness to better everyone and everything around you; to think outside of yourself. Why think outside of yourself? Well, if I have to tell you, then you’ll never truly know.
We all draw our energy from the same, yet different place; love. For some, it is the love of their work. Others it is the love of their pets and their family. And still others it is their partner, their soul mate – if they’re so fortunate to know her. There are many types of love, why not simply appreciate all of them and let them ALL empower you. Build you up to be this indomitable positive force in the universe and when you have everything at your fingertips; give it all right back.
And with that, know that the warrior, the one who dances in the storm – it is you.
And it always has been.
