In Case Your Life Feels Like a Hurricane...
And so, what can we do?
Let go of what we were holding onto so fiercely.
Define a greater reason for living. (For me, it's love.)
Little by little.
Build a stronger foundation the second time around.
Be grateful for the chance to live and experience it all.
These things are hard to do. Oh man. These are no small feats. But, there is hope! We're all in this together!! Isn't that such a gift? I hope those feeling the affects of a hurricane right now, literal or figurative, can feel some support and love. And I hope in some small way, you can feel some support and love from us through this blog, too. We are rooting for you.
And, you'll be amazed by this comment left by a reader:
"I lived through Katrina. My family lost everything. Those in my neighborhood did as well. It ended up being my most favorite time of my life! I still think back to that time after the immense devastation in my city and reminisce about it. Ugh. SO much love. So much turmoil, yet so very much faith and hope. I've truly never seen so much strength, love, and beauty in my life. Yes, it was terribly hard and I don't want to discount or minimize that. Yet, love was so prevalent and POWERFUL during that time...everyone coming together...people coming out of the woodwork to help!! It really does make a difference."
