Windstorm

imageAdversity is like walking in to a turbulent windstorm.
As you fight to push through it, you not only gain strength, but it tears away from you all but the essential parts of you that cannot be torn. Once you come out of the storm you see yourself as you really are in raw form, still holding the passions and ideas that move you, and little else.
The most prolific experience is not in achieving something, but in seeking it. It is the journey towards an endless horizon that matters.. goals that move forward with you as you chase them. It’s all about the pursuit and what you learn along the way, the moving.
The most important reason for moving from one place to another is to see what’s in between. In between is where passions are realized, strength is gained, and memories are made. You can’t get any of that without firsthand living.
Ultimately, there is only what you want and what happens. When you don’t get what you want, there is only grabbing on and holding tight to the passions and ideas that move you. These are the lusts that matter.. the inner love that defines you. It is this kind of love that drives you forward and even when the going gets tough. It is this kind of love that should never be dropped.
