Thunderbolts and Lightning! When I hear those words together, they make me think of that song by Queen called Bohemian Rhapsody. Do you know it as well? Did those words together make you think of it too?
Well, last night we had a wicked storm here and as I watched the storm roll in, the lightning flash and heard the thunder roar, I thought of how good storms can be to clear out what isn’t working and to electrify the atmosphere so that change can take place.
I used to be afraid of storms, but I’ve changed the way I look at them. While I am careful with lightning and such, I find storms more fascinating now that my mindset has developed and changed.
Because storms change life up. Sometimes it isn’t in a good way, but in the end, we learn and grow from storms. For if we didn’t have storms, we wouldn’t learn from life’s lessons. We wouldn’t increase our understanding of human behavior. We wouldn’t develop our innate talents. We wouldn’t find our community that supports us. Without storms shaking us up, we would stay stagnant
So let’s cheer to the storms – To the lightning that shines in the darkness where we may fear to tread. To the thunder that rolls in with strength. To the rains that blanket the earth with much needed water to help growth.
Did you have storms where you are? Are you a storm watcher as I am?
