When you start seeing your worth, you’ll find it harder to stay around people who don’t.
This is quite the apropos post because the thunder outside is currently grumbling and getting louder, and the rain is beginning to drench everything in sight…ah, tropical afternoons!
I love the feeling of being warm and dry inside while it’s storming outside…there is something simple and enjoyable about knowing that we have refuge from chaos in our homes. As I sit in bed with candles lit, listening to the rain and thunder, I can’t help but think about how our own minds can be shelter from the storms that arise in life. When there are uncontrollable aspects around us, whether it’s a current event that has us worried, discomfort in a situation, or any number of stressful things that can be going on, we can seek refuge in our minds and spirits. Whether it is silently reciting a positive affirmation, like “This too shall pass!” or remembering an obstacle you once overcame….or even a fond memory from the past, you can weather the storm until it passes, or arm yourself with the positive thoughts and energy to face it head-on.
May you find shelter from your storms, and either find the patience to let them pass, or the courage to stand up to and defeat them! Namaste.
