#20 The Adventures to Great Soap & how to find it: Ian & his fury taught us all a valuable lesson.
We are blessed to live in Florida, on a wild & scenic river called the Myakka River. Living on the water is sometimes a gamble. In the case of hurricane Ian, We experienced just how wild nature can be. With 4 to 7 feet of water surrounding our home, we were tested to the limit. We are proud to call the Myakka River our home and share it with neighbors who are more like family.
It's true, we often underestimate our own bravery and resilience until we're faced with a challenge or difficult situation. When we're forced to confront obstacles or adversity, we discover inner reserves of strength and courage that we may not have known existed.
Challenges can take many forms, whether it's a personal setback, a difficult project at work, or a physical challenge like a marathon or obstacle course. Regardless of the nature of the challenge, it's important to approach it with a growth mindset and a willingness to learn and adapt.
When we rise to a challenge, we develop important skills like perseverance, problem-solving, and resilience. We learn to push through adversity and overcome obstacles, and we gain a sense of pride and accomplishment when we succeed.
Moreover, overcoming challenges can also help us to build stronger relationships with others. When we face challenges together as a team or community, we develop a sense of camaraderie and support that can help us to navigate difficult times.
So, if you're feeling hesitant or unsure about taking on a new challenge, remember that you have inner reserves of bravery and resilience that you may not even be aware of yet. By approaching challenges with a growth mindset and a willingness to learn and adapt, you can discover your own potential and achieve great things. Don't be afraid to step out of your comfort zone and take on new challenges – you may be surprised at how brave you can be when put to the test.
Hurricane Ian is a test that many bravely survived, never hoping to experience nature in such a violent state again. We have 3 months before hurricane season begins again. We hope this year for calm weather with little incident.
