Be the Rainbow After the Hurricane

Humans are destructive.

We tend to break things.

The one thing we’re destructive towards the most, is ourselves.

We dwell on the past and all the mistakes we’ve left behind.

We tear ourselves apart, trying to figure out where we had gone wrong.

We don’t give ourselves enough credit for the good we’ve done.

When it rains, it pours.

We tend to stand in the rain, as all the mistakes drown out the good.

The river of pain flows through us, no matter how hard we try to avoid it.

Then, the rain stops.

We stand in the open, as the clouds drift away.

As the clouds leave, the beautiful colors light up the sky.

One end spreads to the other, in a memorizing way.

In that moment, we remember the good we’ve done and all the positive aspects of our lives.

Nowadays we don’t give ourselves or others the credit we all deserve.

We all make mistakes, it’s in our blood.

We tend to remember the bad decisions and mistakes we’ve made.

We only view one another for those mistakes.

We got so lost in the negativity, that we forgot that we’re not all that different.

We’ve all hit rock bottom at some point.

We’ve all sat on the floor, sobbing, wondering where we could’ve went wrong.

The truth is, we didn’t go wrong.

We followed our instincts and we ran into trouble.

Mistakes happen and that’s what makes life so beautiful.

We all regret something in our lives.

Everyone endures different pain and creates their own mistakes.

We all have to learn the same life lessons, just in different forms.

Remember that you’re human.

Perfection is just a word made up by an imperfect human, who wanted to strive to be better.

That’s all we can do.

Strive to be the best version of yourself.

Practice makes progress, not perfect.

You’re worthy of so much.

Your potential goes beyond your knowledge.

Your strength comes from the battles you’ve yet to face.

Don’t be the thunder on a cloudy day.

Be the rainbow after the hurricane.
