Palm trees in hurricanes

Here’s a thought: The most important things in life that we ever choose, we choose by surrendering to them; accepting them; and allowing them to invite us to see things differently.

Like a palm tree bends to a hurricane and remains standing and unharmed (save perhaps for a few dead fronds that fall away) while tougher trees that refuse to bend break and are torn up. We must bend to circumstances beyond our control and let good things happen as well as bad things.

As long as we can do nothing to make it better, we may as well let it change us. In a good way. In fact, usually good things are the ones beyond our control. Even when it looks like a storm.
