I am not afraid of storms for I am learning how to sail my ship. – Louisa May Alcott
Every storm is a lesson in sailing your ship. Every obstacle and challenge is an opportunity to learn, grow, and develop new skills. Life is full of storms; it is your response to each storm that determines where you eventually end up.
We don’t blindly navigate our lives into hurricanes; we are intentional, purposeful, and skilled in our actions. We know that not every day can be smooth sailing either; life puts storms in our path. We seek to learn and build our skills with each experience. We find our edge, we pursue growth, and we set new expectations.
Don’t be afraid of events that challenge you; learn from them. Don’t be reckless in your navigation, prepare and plan your path. Most of all, don’t forget to enjoy the journey. There are many sunny, clear days filled with opportunities for smooth sailing. Be balanced . . . Enjoy the journey.
