What if - I asked myself over and over - I gave myself permission to wonder..to worry..to question? What if - instead of questioning my question..I accepted it as just the way it is?
No matter how practiced...how prepared...how ready - it always comes as an unwelcome surprise. As if it wasn't expected. As if we weren't forewarned. The rain. The wind. The drama...destruction..and resultant power outtages.
And so - here I am.
Practicing acceptance for how it is. Embracing the wonder and worry...and the questions. Finding comfort in that discomfort. Knowing - that no thing is final...and that - this too - shall change.
And - it did. And - it has. This storm has passed. But we all know - there will always be another.
