Standing in the Hurricane

By Billy | January 6, 2010

Your weaknesses are your strongest points; your greatest potential for growth, learning, understanding, and to spread knowledge.  The universe has a great ability to manifest the perfect storm for you.  Your perfect storm.  Maybe you should run from it and wait for four more tornadoes to show up, or maybe you should just brace yourself and charge in there.  Maybe the winds will strip you naked and smash you.  Maybe you’ll feel shamed.  Maybe you’ll get broken bones and scars.


Sometimes you have nothing left but to raise your head and scream back at the lightning.  Sometimes you have to look like a fool.  Sometimes you will be a fool.

(Probably not)

Surviving the storm might leave you more emotionally than physically shaken.  The whole reason for running was that you were scared for your physical life, but your body got over it much more quickly than your mind.  Chew on that.

I’m going to go out today with a quote spoken to Bart Simpson.  I love that the quote itself is contextless enough to stand on it’s own and be relevant to most of life.

“Let me start by saying… Good for you, son!

It’s always good to see young people taking an interest in danger.  Now a lot of people are going to be telling you you’re crazy

and maybe they’re right.  But the fact of the matter is:

Bones heal, chicks dig scars, and The United States of America has the best doctor-to-daredevil ratio in the world!”

If you’re capable of reading this post, you can 1) read.  2)find a computer someplace, 3)have the spare time to read a blog post.

I’ll warrant any death-defying stunt you engage in will likely not permanently destroy your life.  Rather, it will likely enhance your life beyond your imaginations.

We’re all running from something.  Stop.
