There are many days we step outside and allow the wind to play with our hair. It rushes through sky and trees to kiss our face. Some days we close our eyes and welcome it, and some days we cover our face and wish it away.
On the days we feel light and invite life to gift us with adventure, the winds will come and we will be packed and set to go. It will arrive with whichever direction we are willing to take and will carry us through a journey we have wished for ourselves.
On the days we feel burdened and need some space to be, it will arrive with a gust and test our strength. It will remind us of our roots and whisper to fear that it does not belong here. Because fear needs to realize, even the gust of a wind cannot shake what we have planted, and the gust of the wind will give us the space to prove just that.
Welcome the breeze, and welcome the gust. Depending on the days, they may take us on adventures or they may test our strength. Whichever arrives will be for our growth.
