No matter how sweet your life or how happy you seem to always be, storms and hardships will come. It is how we handle these hardships that shape the person we are. Stand strong and face the winds undaunted, do not let them bring you to your knees. It is through these trials that we are strengthened and our true shine is brought out.
I took the reference photo of an approaching storm here in North Dakota. Forever mesmerized by the way storms roll across this sky here.
