Happy Monday, my strong and resistant!
Welcome to the day that you realize your strength, and begin to use it to accomplish all of your
dreams and goals! Today's Daily Word is dedicated to weathering the storm!
Unless you've been hiding under a rock, we all know that, as we speak, Hurricane Sandy has begun to wreak havoc on the Eastern Seaboard’s largest cities, forcing the shutdown of mass transit, schools and financial markets. She has been threatening a dangerous mix of high winds, soaking rain, and a surging wall of water up to 11 feet tall, and is said to potentially cost billions of dollars in damage and can endanger up to 50 million people for days.
While Sandy's wrath sounds vicious - and I pray we all stay safe during her melee - there are people out there who are dealing with internal storms that need to be addressed! Some of us have been dealing with these storms for some time, and no matter what we do, we can't seem to shake them off! Just like Sandy, some storms are unavoidable and have to be dealt with, but in the same breath, understand that it is these very storms that give you power to accomplish all that you have set your sights on!
The problem has never been and will never be the storm... The problem is your perception, and how we view the storm! Stop playing the victim, and stop wishing that life could be easier... Instead realize that adversity has been built into success and is the price you pay to get to the next level! To whom much is given, much is required!! Realize that after the storm is over, all of your dreams and aspirations will be yours! Weather the Storm!! You have come too far to let all of your work go to waste!!
