Panama City - San Francisco
When it is freezing cold you fantasize about heat and warmth and it is difficult to imagine being too warm. When you sizzling in the heat and dreaming of air conditioning it is difficult to imagine a situation where you are too cold.
When things are going well and you feel like you are on the top of the world, an invincible force moving forward, it is difficult to imagine failure. And when things take a turn for the worse and suddenly nothing is going right it just feels like your world is collapsing and there is nothing you can do about it. Life. Things happen. We need to ride the storm.
And suddenly you may feel that you hit rock bottom, that there is nothing more to lose, you are against the ropes and taking the blows, you are struggling just to stand up.
You may feel abandoned, alone facing the storm, bleeding and hurting. This is your moment of truth. Facing rejection and opposition now it is your moment to show who you are. This is the moment your true character comes out and in a still small voices says, "I am the storm".
You walk outside and face the storm with a storm of your own. You feel the cold against your face, the hair on your face becomes icy and you say, that is just fine, I am moving forward.
You are at the plate, facing the pitcher, the crowd is heckling you, mocking you, but you are the storm, you are the calm, you are you. You rise to the occasion, those who bet against you, those who counted you out, have made a big mistake, you may fall down but you know how to get up. You look the storm in the eye and said, "Do you know who I am? Well, I am about to show you."
