SUNDAY STORIES | "I AM THE STORM"

On this long holiday weekend today is more like a Sunday so here I am with a story meant to light your (and my) soul on fire as we head into the week ahead.


Yesterday, my amazing husband, John Griffiths, and I got caught in a rain, hail, thunder and lightning storm on our mountain bike ride. 40 minutes left in the ride we set out on the 1,700 ft climb staring into increasingly dark and stormy skies. Below is a shot I took after we made it.


We passed a few hikers who were coming down and warned us the storm was worse higher up the trail. My reply as we sprinted onward 👉 "Thanks for the heads-up. We live up there. We have to keep going."


The final part of the climb usually takes 15 minutes. We did in 12 amid the height of the storm - with welts on our arms and backs from the hail.


When I thought back to the experience and you all- it all made me think of this relatable quote 👇


FATE WHISPERED TO THE WARRIOR:

"YOU CANNOT WITHSTAND THE STORM"

AND THE WARRIOR WHISPERS BACK:

"I AM THE STORM"


I share this story with all of you Warrior Leaders out there bc each of us is either encountering a storm of some sort or we're in the calm before the next one that is sure to come.


As we keep going, let's remember to bet on ourselves - to tap into our warrior spirits as we make the choice to prevail.


Let's remember to whisper to ourselves and anyone who needs to hear it:


"I AM THE STORM"
