Storms of life sometimes blow us over with their blustery force and focused zeal. Even when we feel as if we can't get up, that it will just take too much out of us, we find the will and the strength to recover once more.
The truth is that we can only survive the winds of change if we bend to them, rather than resisting them. Our resilience comes in our ability to be flexible. While we may not stand straight and tall, we do get a new viewpoint of the world around us, and eventually new shoots and limbs and leaves will once more reach for the sun in an upward direction.
Spirit of the Wind, use me, shape me, strengthen me through surrender.
