“The wind of change, whatever it is, blows most freely through an open mind.”
~ Katherine Whitehorn
“The wind is us, it gathers and remembers all our voices, then sends them talking and telling through the leaves and the fields.”
~ Thurman Capote
“To most human beings, wind is an irritation. To most trees, wind is a song.”
~ Mokokoma Mokhonoana
“Sometimes in the winds of change we find our true direction.”
In ways beyond our ability to count, political, economic, social and day to day factors impact on the uncertainty of current times! We must make the best decisions for ourselves. We can’t ignore the wind, nor the wisdom it carries, nor the change that it can forecast!
There was a strong south east wind for an outdoor visit by the lake. I was drawn to the parallels of the wind! It burned my face, it diminished the heat of the sun, it carried my voice away from my friend’s ears, and it chilled me to the bone! The wind forced me to acknowledge the power of change, acknowledge that things are going to happen and things will change. Change that is often out of our control, yet with choices to make decisions as we adjust to the wind!
Listen to the messages of the wind, consider current situations in the context of change and make purposeful transformations!
