Overcoming Storms

Life is like a highway, ever spread out before us.

Storms come, blocking our way towards our goals.

Some are so intense that we think we cannot survive,

But, the highway eventually clears and progress unfolds.

No highway is free of obstructions, problems, and obstacles.

A soft life is not one that teaches endurance and skills.

It is learning how to manoeuver around the trials that

Creates in us wisdom and gives strength to our wills.
