It may be considered a little weird or at least a little different to be told that we are a little bit luckier now that we’ve had a big storm pass through our lives. One of the reasons that we are luckier is that we didn’t just have a storm pass through, but rather we just successfully weathered that storm! Hooray!

You see, a weathered storm cleanses us as they wash away the old and bring in the new. Storms can give us all a fresh start at something that formerly might have been a bad start. Sometimes storms will even unveil a clear vision for a new path or fresh start. .

The really rougher blinding storms in our lives are truly fascinating and have an even greater degree of magic to them than the calmer, vision-clearing storms. When it’s raining too hard to see straight that’s exactly when our almighty subconscious mind takes over and sees the mysterious lesson and a possible way out. Somehow we always find ourselves under a shelter, sitting up there on that red picnic table, stronger and better prepared for the next storm, whether we know it or not.

Sadly, our conscious mind doesn’t always recognize the lesson that the storm is trying to teach us, but luckily for us, our subconscious mind does. The lessons residing in our subconscious mind may not shine through today, tomorrow, next Tuesday, or even during the next rainy season when we think that we really need it to shine through and speak to us. But be certain of one thing, the much-needed lesson will eventually shine through the tumultuous weather and the fresh start will emerge. Surprisingly, many times these life lessons will appear when we least expect it. So do not give up hope!

Now please share with the rest of us how you plan to use Granddaddy’s secret of,  ”Every Storm Makes Us Luckier!”
