Storms Can Bring Patience In The Moment

11 October 2016 Written by 

From Jackson Kiddard, beautiful words of truth, "Patience child, patience. Remember, life is a journey. If you got everything you wanted all at once there’d be no point to living. Enjoy the ride, and in the end you’ll see these “setbacks” as giant leaps forward, only you couldn’t see the bigger picture in the moment. Remain calm, all is within reach; all you have to do is show up every day, stay true to your path and you will surely find the treasure you seek."

I grow strong when I have to go through the storms. It is then that I learn the most and become transformed. When the floor falls away, the ship lists to one side, or the fire rages – these are always the potentially transformative moments in my life. I can fight them, resist them, or embrace them.

This I have learned – if I don’t learn what this lesson came to teach me, I will soon enough be taking the lesson again. The lesson will come as often as necessary to teach me what I need to learn. A wise student learns to listen for the lesson in the storm.

Today’s experiences come. I will choose to live my life today full of wonder, embracing the mystery and choosing to live happily ever after – moment by moment.

Raised on a dairy farm in upstate NY, I learned to work hard along with my five siblings. I grew up in a very conservative Mennonite-Amish church which shaped a lot of my fundamental core values and beliefs. After moving to Florida to attend college, I married and became mother to five children. Eventually, my unmanageable life came to a crashing halt and I found my way into an Al-Anon recovery program. Recovery has affected every area of my life and I love sharing the things I am learning with others so that they might also find hope for their own recovery.
