After Hurricane Irene

The dawn was so pretty this morning. If seems like hurricane Irene( that hit east coast yesterday and left almost a million homes in Virginia alone without power) happened in another life. Even if it was still quite dark, I could see that the sky was clear. As I was pulling the driveway at a few minutes before 6:00, I could see the first sign of dawn. The sky was a very faint but gorgeous sight to behold behind the darkness of the cloud that was slightly covering it. The early morning breeze made the trees sway as if welcoming a new day with so much rejoicing and hope that finally the hurricane and the dangers it brought has passed.

Somehow that vision brought a feeling of happiness and hope in my heart. It inspired me to reflect on my experiences in my journey through this life. It is always comforting that happiness comes after every trial. The frustrations and the sadness brought about by our own mistakes and shortcomings may weaken our self-confidence but also a way for us to become stronger and better person if we only look at the positive side of these experiences. After every storm, the sky clears up and the sun will surely shines.  
And as for me there's so much to hope for and so much promise for today and for the future. The sky seemed to be talking to me, saying "be patient for many good things are coming, the promise of beautiful future is at hand." I felt so at peace even though my schedule as I looked at it, threatens to overrun me....
