The Calm After the Storm

HurricaneAfter a hurricane the weather is often beautiful, it’s the calm after the storm. Making a decision, particularly a decision that involves money and risk, you often feel you’re in a storm, being buffeted about in a sea of fear, concern, enthusiasm, confidence, and doubt.

I’m not yet ready to declare my decision final but while sitting on the train yesterday I was Beachovercome by a sense of calm, a sense that fear and doubt were completely vanquished. More than being calm, I was serene, totally comfortable with the decision I’m about to make.

I know it won’t last as problems are sure to arise because problems are a part of life, but I also know that during the worst of times I can have faith that the feeling of calm will return.

Do you have stories of calm after a storm? I would love to hear your comments below.
