Ah… the joys of a good thunderstorm! I was outside doing some work around the house this morning when the sounds of thunder delighted me. It was loud, it was intense, it was coming from such depths… It felt so vibrant, and it made me feel alive.
Truth is I have not not been feeling that flow that I adore, that feeling of being connected. Being out in the hustle and bustle of everyday life, I sometimes lose that vibrancy, and shut down to the delights of quieting down. Being busy will do that to you, won’t it? I like to think that I can catch myself when I start sliding into “busy bee mode” (not taking time to go within), but honestly it happens so quickly, and it can go unnoticed for a very long time… But the thunderstorm brought me back. I snapped out of it. Like a rapture, it created such an intense feeling of belonging, it made me feel part of it all. Alive and well. Vibrant, and wanting to write, wanting to express, wanting to burst open, just like a storm bursts open the sky.
I have no doubt that storms are a blessing in our lives. They allow for extra energy to be released, and bring us back to our core. So thank you, Dear Storm. Thank you for bringing me back. I hope that this time I can catch busy bee mode earlier, but if I don’t… I can only hope that you will once more loudly wake me up.
