We are resilient! We can experience various storms and bounce back but in order to do so we must practice self-care. We must learn the importance of taking care of our mind, body and spirit. All three are vital to our ability to withstand storms and our ability to continue to stand after they’ve passed. After we’ve survived a storm, we should ask ourselves some very serious questions; the questions that the trees can’t ask themselves: How deeply am I rooted? Am I broken in various places? Am I capable of withstanding another storm?
As I approached my subdivision, I noticed the tree that I thought should have fallen was still standing. I also noticed that there were other trees surrounding it helping it to stand. Always be mindful of the need to practice self-care. Doing so will help us withstand the storms of life. Surround yourselves with other women who are strong and are willing to help you stand. Storms will come as they always do so make sure that you prepare yourself mentally, physically, and spiritually to not just withstand but to continue to stand after the storm!
Please take time to consider the following:
- What helps you get through the storms of life?
- How do you weather the storms?
- How do you feel after the storm has passed?
Always make preparations to that will allow you to stand long after the storm has passed.
