‘The time to repair the roof is when the sun in shining.’ John F. Kennedy
This quote is such a great reminder that we can always be pro-active with our growth. Difficult times often force us to grow- and their arrival can be a great catalyst to change. But why wait for difficulties to call us up, when we can instead choose to step up on our own?
We all come here to grow, and there is no doubt in my mind when we become complacent the Universe often shakes things up a little to get our attention. When we choose to work on our own evolution when life is not demanding it from us, we are, in a sense, fixing the roof before the storm clouds roll in…
So the moral to this story is this: Life will always find a way to force us to grow, but instead of waiting for the shake ups we can always choose to fix the roof before the rain starts to fall.
