And once the storm is over you won’t remember how you made it through, how you managed to survive. You won’t even be sure, in fact, whether the storm is really over. But one thing is certain. When you come out of the storm you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.
You may think that your happiness is dependent on a certain thing happening in your life. You may think that it is the key to whether you will move into the future with joy or with regret. But you are placing way too much weight on that one element. No one thing can bring you happiness, or crush your happiness. When you can look at this objectively, perhaps after you have chosen to let it go for a while, then you will see that there are many paths to happiness. And that will free you.
