Third Natural disaster I’ve been in
I have to say that the last 2 years of my life have been very exciting. These last 2 years I’ve been in two hurricanes and an earthquake.
I have been very fortunate. I haven’t really been inconvenienced. I am prepared with stored food and water if the worst hits.
The purpose of this post is to hope that no one is hurt and things go well and we only have property damage. I am not afraid for my safety. I know and have read the risks of the storm. They are real. Life has been so good to me in allowing me to grow and become that no matter what happens I am grateful for my opportunities.
Sometimes I think that our fears are the worst thing in the world. They prevent us from being engaged in the moment. I have learned that fears while they seem real, almost never come true. Maybe 1 in 100 times have my fears come true. You know what? I was better off that they did come true. Everything that has been difficult to endure in life has made me stronger. I didn’t want or choose them, but I grew from them.
I know that no matter what happens in life, things have a way of working out for the best. Eventually humans learn from their mistakes, and if they don’t, well then the human race dies like every other animal who can’t adapt to its environment. I don’t wish for harm to come to humanity, but when we choose harm for ourselves, what do we expect the result to be? It still is baffling to me when people hurt themselves and they know it. If I hurt myself, then I seek help not to do it again. Sometimes that means exercising my muscles to get stronger, and sometimes that means exercising my spirit to avoid things that aren’t good for me.
It isn’t my goal to tell you how to live your life. Everyone is on their own path. I just wanted to share that even in the worst of times there are beautiful things happening inside and outside of you. Mahalo.
