The flood the other week was terrible.
At the time it was very, very difficult.
Basements got flooded. Properties got ruined. Some people were hurt.
But, remember our mantra: This too shall pass!
The very next day the sun was shining. It was an amazing, beautiful, sunny weather!
What a comparison to the weather of the day before?!
Although it might take weeks for the flooded basements to dry up; the storm has passed.
Eventually, the damage will pass too.
In life, there is no other way to look at it.
Even if at the moment it looks like it’s the worst problem you ever had.
Even if you can’t imagine ever forgetting about it.
Even if you think you will remember it forever and ever.
This too shall pass. This too shall pass.
Of course, every pain dulls with time. This is one of the biggest gifts of the creation of God.
The more you stay aware that everything will eventually pass, the easier it will be to remember this in the moment of your pain.
One practical tip would be to make a note in your calendar to remind yourself a month after ‘an incident’ happens to you.
In a month’s time check in with your emotions: “How destroyed am I because of whatever happened last month?”
You will see how little it matters to you a month later.
Whenever you are going through a difficult period, stay mindful and know with 100% certainty that it will pass eventually.
That, my friend, I wish for you. Only happiness and success always!
