A friend shared this quote with me, I had not seen before, but I liked it and wanted to share.

Fate whispers to the warrior, “You cannot withstand the storm.” The warrior whispers back, “I am the Storm.”

Life presents challenges every week, every day, and at times, every hour it seems; how we receive those challenges is important for our survival.

Do you see yourself as the Storm?

What do you feel defines a storm? Is it the loud thunder, an overwhelming fear, the hurt of a lightning strike or the darkness?

Or do you see the beauty in the rain, thunder and lightning?

When I read this quote, I felt inspired, but I know there are times in my life that I wouldn’t have felt the same. Each of us go through trials and depending on what is happening around us, it can determine how we handle a storm that comes our way.
