If you are like me, you want calmness in your life. You want good fortune and ease and happy times. Difficult moments of change are usually not what we want, or we sign up for, but they are part of what we experience.
It is easy to focus on the good times and wish the bad times away. It’s easy to disregard the bad times as if they do not exist.
However, as I have found in my life, smooth sailing will only take us so far. We will drift along in the water aimlessly. In contrast, if we have the wind, our sails will push our ships forward on our voyage. The water may be choppy, but we will be sailing the high seas of life. We will be experiencing difficult moments brought by the winds of change.
To have balance in life between the good times and the bad is helpful. It helps us find the strength to continue when the waves may get rough, and the winds howl.
Looking back at the tough times in our lives, we see just how far we have come and how much we have grown. We learned so much in this moments. During those rough times, we know it was challenging. The important part is that we endured and it transformed our life into something new.
Sometimes, I look back at those times where I struggled to make it through the day. Every minute I worried. Sometimes, I almost gave up in despair. I never thought at that moment that anything good could come out of it. In fact, I didn’t know if I could make it.
Now, I can see what I learned. I can see how much life changed for me.
The winds of change are needed to help us find new points in life. Otherwise, we would stay in the same spot on the ocean. The wind helps push us to the place we need to go.
Embrace the winds of change, for they help you through difficult moments of change. They will carry you through if you embrace them, as hard as that may sound.
These are words I do not write lightly, since I have endured so much that many would hardly believe. I know it isn’t easy going through the difficult moments of change. It is not easy dealing with these painful moments, but this too shall pass.
We will see that the winds of change helped us find a new destination. The new place will be full of possibility and hope. Difficult moments never last.
