Most people would look at Hurricane Maria destroying the island of Puerto Rico as a bad thing. But underneath something that's seemingly negative there is always a silver lining.
But don't get me wrong... Hurricane Maria was no walk in the park. Puerto Rico is still trying to get back on track with most people still not having power since September. Yet there were many great lessons to be learned from this great storm.
One - We are most resilient that we think. We can come back from the brink of destruction and overcome all obstacles. I remember that first day after the storm, my wife didn't even want me to go outside... yet I had to see how bad things were. And it was pretty bad, yet we were able to accept what we had before us and move forward to make powerful changes.
We are Powerful!
Two - We can work together to help one another. Sometimes it seems that we are all just islands in huge a sea of humanity. Yet when the chips were down all the neighbors got together to help one another with whatever they had to make a difference.
This is True Brotherly Love!
Three - There were trees down and in the roads and we had to cut trees down with what we had and sometimes that was just a machete and it took hours to cut through a tree. Yet we did it and made a difference for all the people of this island. And at the same time spread the word to all of humanity that we as human beings can overcome anything.
We Can Overcome!
Four - We never gave up hope and had great faith in our future and in God. I think this is the most important part of all. If we just rolled over and didn't have any faith then nothing would have happened. I think it goes back to what Saint Ignacio said "Do everything as though it all depends upon you. And then pray to God as though it all depends on God."
We Thank God for Everything!
Many Blessings to Everyone!
