One of my favorite sayings in A.A. is
“Life isn’t about avoiding the storm, but learning instead to dance in the rain”
There’s a storm in my life right now. The ending of a relationship that I thought was forever.
The storm is inside me. It is inside my heart.
It rages loud and strong. It rages quietly and painfully.
No matter how many years of sobriety I have…there will always be storms.
Some storms are little. A quick shower and it’s over. Others are dark violent storms that seem to last forever.
Every time a storm comes into my life, I have to relearn again how to dance in the rain.
Yesterday was full of torrential downpours.
So I tried to dance…
The storm will continue to rage.
I’ve learned to not avoid them.
My dance is still a little awkward…a little shaky…
But I’m dancing.
