Life is impacting – it’s meant to be that way. As we talk about the things that impact us the most, we’re making a wise choice – a healthy alternative.
Talking about life is one of ways that we acknowledge and celebrate our joys – it’s also how we release our excess of concerns (worry).
We learn more about ourselves and life when we acknowledge it all! The expected and the unexpected, the familiar and the unfamiliar…the fears, the pain, the anticipated as well as those things that disappoint – the ups and downs, the failures and the triumphs!!
This is life! There’s no need to wallow in shame or regret for how you’ve spent your past. You have RIGHT NOW…TODAY to make a notable change for yourself (we all do).
This is life – Cleanse yourself in the waters of forgiveness & live. While you’re at it, forgive that other stuff too!
Are you making the most of life?

“Be patient toward all that is unsolved in your heart and try to love the questions themselves. Do not now seek the answers, which cannot be given you because you would not be able to live them. And the point is to live everything. Live the questions.” ~Rainer Maria Rilke
I encourage patience as though I have it mastered – I don’t. But I do know of her benefits, as life continues to put me in places where I’ve chosen to engage her company. Of course, I could resist. But why? Resistance will not make things happen any faster, it only causes frustration.
Patience is a kindred spirit, attempting to deliver a message of peaceful resolve. Meaning that when we are without answer, we surrender…quietening anxiety’s rush.
Patience is a virtue, a fruit of the spirit that equips us (if we let it) for daily living. Patience encourages us to slow down & to re-evaluate the situation (whatever that might be per individual).
Patience does not promote hopelessness. Patience PREPARES us for a life of vision & teaches us to honor its process.
Patience beckons our attention. What are you learning through patience?
Your thoughts & wisdom are always welcomed.
Thank you for your visiting Life Through The Storm. Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm

Life is our Instructor. Our daily encounters, challenges and other situations are our assignments. How we handle ourselves with our assignments is based on our attentiveness to the lessons.
Repetition is not a bad thing. We repeat in order to learn. We go over & over particulars in order to gain some understanding. Life is our Instructor.
In some matters, we repeat because we’ve not learned. We repeat in order to apply a different perspective/technique to a familiar situation or challenge.
As we pay attention to ourselves and to the grace that each lesson bestows to us – it’s a blessing to have the opportunity to learn – even if those lessons are learned through some of our most difficult or challenging experiences. Life is our Instructor.
It’s encouraging to know that a Power greater than ourselves has our lesson plan in place. The schooling never stops…the learning never stops. Life is our Instructor.
Are you taking notes, asking/answering questions or applying the wisdom that you’ve learned from The Instructor?
Live wise, live well and remember…a lesson is currently taking place. ~Storm
All that you are…matters – from the seemingly least, to the most apparent & obvious.
You are powerful & significant, capable of influencing not only your world…but those with whom you interact.
You matter – your thoughts, your words, your body…your laughter, your pain – your beliefs.
Do you matter to you?
Thank you for stopping by today. I appreciate your visit. You’re always welcome to leave your thoughts & insights. Wishing you balance & well-being. ~Storm
The PROCESS of patience is often slow & meticulous. James 1:4 states it like this – “Allow patience to have her perfect work, so that there is no lack of any good thing.”
Divine structuring is taking place through patience, we are wise to let it happen!
Patience is the virtue that SEEMINGLY holds us back, although this is not the case…she’s merely taking care of Divine business – WORKING stuff WITHIN us & WORKING stuff OUT of us.
Believe it or not, patience pushes us forward – equipping us with the “know how” – holding our highest good!
Patience WORKS within each participant what time alone does not grant. Time gives to us the seasons & increments of space needed for a particular thing, or situation to take its timely turn. Patience equips us within that time frame (with the proper gear) so that we are effective in our assignment. She is a guardian of sorts…making sure that we are clothed sufficiently as we live, move & have our being.
How do you handle patience – rather, how do you allow patience to work in you?

I thank God that we’re not bound to live by our experiences alone. Our experiences assist us in learning more about ourselves, and the world around us. Furthermore, our experiences & daily encounters shed light on the beliefs & thoughts that we’ve chosen to practice – or, the ones that hold us captive…healthy or unhealthy.
“I am not what happened to me, I am what I choose to become.” ~C.G. Jung
“Turn your wounds into wisdom.” ~Oprah Winfrey
We’re each left with the responsibility of searching deep within ourselves – courageously facing & clearing the impact (debris) from experiences that leave us with a poor/false self-image, or – with feelings of being unloved. This arduous act of self-examination…is self-love. It affirms – we are more than our experiences.
Divine love, the unconditional principal that validates self-awareness & self-acceptance is primary as we seek to define who we are.
Are you defining yourself through your experiences?
Your insights are always welcome. Thank you for your visit. Live wise & live well. ~Storm
