Flying Like an Eagle in the Storm ๐Ÿฆ…

Sometimes it’s easy to throw in the towel and give up. But, not today, and tomorrow ain’t lookin’ too good either. Keep faith and hope in your heart, but continue to fight with the light of your spirit! Then spread your wings and soar like an eagle!

Riding the Storm

In the midst of the storm, hold on and wait
strong, gusty winds are reduced to a gentle breeze
heavy downpours of rain are reduced to light showers
chaos and confusion is reduced to peace
anxiety and sadness is changed to joy
fear and doubt is changed to faith
bitterness and hatred is turned into love.

  1. I love this poem and message, my dear kindred. It reminds me of my breakdown, and subsequent breakthrough yesterday. If we hang on to hope, and the knowledge that all of this, sans One, is transient, a breakthrough is bound to come, we just have to hang in there. Thank you for this, dear Kym! Happy weekend! ๐ŸŒปโค๏ธ๐ŸŒน๐Ÿ’–๐Ÿฅฐ๐Ÿ˜๐Ÿค—
