After the Storm

The sky starts to clear up. The road is wet but not for long. Fallen leaves and branches are scattered all over to be swept later. Soon, signs  that a heavy rain fell will be hardly noticeable except for the grass that look greener. People will go about their business like they always do unmindful of the fact that soon it a storm will come again.

Storms  represent the challenges in our lives. They come and they go. They happen to the best of us and to the least of us. After overcoming the downpour we should learn to pick the pieces up and move on.

Soon the signs that a storm went by will be hardly noticeable, except for a sign of a stronger and more experienced you.


What Would An Ant Do?

Fant_closeup.jpgant_closeup.jpgind another way… that’s the answer. Block the ant’s path, and it goes left, right, above, even dig it’s way out of the problem. You won’t see ants banging on the blockage thinking it can break it, no! they find other ways. The least that ants do when they face a challenge is stop. I mean have you seen an ant staring at a wall for long hours? It’ll be dead if it does that.

Now, what would you do?

It’s amazing how often we feel stuck whenever we encounter a stumbling block or when we see things do not go our way or our schemes fail to work. I’ve seen many people including myself staring on a blank wall and say, no choice, there’s nothing I can do when this is far from being true… And we have bigger brains!

The next time you see yourself saying, there’s nothing I can do or I have no choice… think of the ant.
