My Ship

“I’m not afraid of storms, for I am learning to sail my ship.”

~Louisa May Alcott

Storms come and go in our lives, and it’s not like we can have any control over these storms.  We can’t have them come at a more convenient time over another.  They just happen.  When my storms come, they are able to knock me off my feet.  But like this quote says, I am learning to sail my ship through these storms.

And if anything can give me hope, it’s that.  Storms don’t have to knock us off our feet or even off the track of our journey.  We just have to learn to steer around and through, our ships are strong enough to handle anything these storms can throw our way.  We just have to believe in ourselves enough to allow our ships to sail.

I will be the first to admit that I allowed myself not to believe, and I am still learning how to sail my ship.  I may always be learning, but I do know that I am still afloat, I am still on my way.
