Who never went through hard times?

Whether you’re in pursuit of happiness, personal fulfillment, or serenity, life’s challenges are holding a major enemy for you:stress.

For many, stress is a daily reality.

It can result from relationship problems, financial uncertainty, though life challenges, multiple failures, and many other circumstances.

I know that feeling, I have been there multiple times.

It is a lonely feeling. Where once life was amazing, it came back, crushed you, and beat you down to your last breath.

We all have different circumstances, but the feeling is the same.

Your heart starts boiling, and your brain freezes you from action.

Your blood flows through your veins as a devastating hurricane.
And you can’t stop a hurricane. In fact, nobody can.

Thus, you feel helpless, and that last breath is the only thing holding you from drowning in that violent liquid windstorm.

You are only a tiny drop of water compared to it.

But despite all that drama, there is hope!

Because a drop of water, merged with a hurricane, doesn’t think of itself as a mere drop of water, it thinks and acts as a hurricane.
That’s right, you become the hurricane.

And the bigger your struggle, the bigger is the hurricane.

The bigger the hurricane, the stronger you become.
