Each season comes with its blessings and challenges. Rainy season is always welcome after a prolonged period of heat and dryness. For farmers, rain is a sign of blessing. It means planting can start. It also means plants can flourish and harvest is guaranteed.
However, when it rains too heavily, everybody begins to complain. The farm field becomes waterlogged and can even damage some plants. Roads become flooded and people get trapped, and in some cases suffering loss of properties and investments.
Dry Season can also be a welcome sight after a season of heavy rainfall. No more dirty water on the road. No more fear of stormy wind pulling away roofs and destroying properties. However, when the heat sets in, we then starts complaining. The dryness and scorching heat can become so unbearable that we soon start clamouring for the rain to return.
Isn’t this how life is? Cyclical and with ups and downs. With moments of joy and celebration, as well as moments of pain and sorrow. No matter who you are, you will have your own fair share. A time to weep and a time to laugh, a time to mourn and a time to dance.
Life is full of times and seasons. None is permanent. The times will come and go. The seasons will arrive and pass.
Wisdom is knowing that the time of hardship will pass and fortune will turn again.
Wisdom is knowing how to plant in the rain so you can eat during the heat.
Wisdom is knowing not to take permanent decisions during a temporary season.
Wisdom is being strong enough to weather the storm while it lasts, because it always ends.
Stay strong, it is just a season.
Stay wise, there is no guarantee that it will always be sweet.
Stay humble, you do not know where you will be tomorrow.
