Lately, I have been feeling like I am caught inside a giant tornado. Things are whirling and swirling around me and everything seems out of control. I am trying not to stress about the weather because I know there is nothing I can do to change it, alter its course or avoid it all together. So I am allowing the tornado to do what it will. By trying to stop it, I will only get hurt. I have chosen to accept that which I have no control over. The storm is not necessarily a bad thing but something I have to get through. Why? Because if I get through this one, it will only make me that much stronger.
I know the storm will settle down shortly. And it definitely has died down a bit since taking a simple drive down south, not even an hour and a half away, off Highway 1. Surrounded by nothing but farmlands and silence. I love going down there. I forgot how much I missed it. It was so peaceful, so calm, so serene. I escaped the tornado for a short period of time but I am ready to deal with whatever it may leave in my path.
