Around this time two years ago, I happened to be on Taveuni, an island in Fiji, during a Category 5 hurricane, Cyclone Winston—the largest to ever hit the Southern Hemisphere. This year, a figurative hurricane hit my life at the same time of the year.
What I learned after the fact is that Cyclone Winston literally fertilized the land for rebirth in the midst of its devastation. The storms in our lives often do the same. “When you come out of the storm, you won’t be the same person who walked in. That’s what this storm’s all about.” --Haruki Murakami, Kafka on the Shore
