Winds Of Change

Winds Of Change

If you are like me and many others, you want calmness in your life. You want good fortune and ease and happy times. Difficult times are usually not what we want or we sign up for, but they are part of what we experience.

Its easy to just focus on the good times and wish the bad times away. Its easy to disconnect and disregard the bad times as if they don’t exist. We all do it and sometimes because of great difficulty, it becomes something we need to do.

However, as I have found in my own life, if we have all smooth sailing, our boat will go nowhere. We will drift aimlessly along in the water. In contrast, if we have the wind, our sails will push our boats along. Yes, the water may get choppy, but we will be sailing the high seas of life.  We will be experiencing the winds of change.

It is good in life to have a balance between all the great times and the bad times. It helps us find the strength to continue on when the waves may get rough and the winds howl.

Yet, as we look back at the tough times in our life, we often see just how far we have come and how much we have grown. It was often in those times that we learned so much. We also know that during those rough times it was very difficult. The good part of all of what we endured is that it transformed our life into something new.

I can look back at times where I barely struggled to make it through the day. I worried every minute and almost gave up in despair. I never thought in that moment that anything good could possibly come out of it. In fact, I didn’t think I could make it through that moment when the events were happening.

Now, I can look back and say, “I see what I learned and I see how much my life changed.”

You see, the winds of change are needed to help us sail in life. We would otherwise be floating and drifting in the same spot on the ocean. The wind helps push us to go where we need to go.

Embrace the winds of life for they help you sail through those difficult moments of change in your life. They will carry you through if you embrace them, as hard as that may sound.

These are words I do not write lightly because my life has endured so much that many would hardly believe. I know it isn’t easy going through the rough moments and pain, but I know that this too shall pass.  At the end of the day, we will see that the winds of change have helped us arrive at a new destination, full of possibility and hope.
