Have you ever been on a flight during a rain storm or other bad weather circumstances? Do you ever wonder how the pilot will get you through the storm? Then... all of a sudden the plane supersedes the gray, muggy surroundings and rises above the gray clouds into a clear horizon and you worry no more.
This is what I am experiencing right now. Literally, I am on a plan to visit a friend and the pilot just played God and overpowered the weather for our safety. How can someone be so omnipotent? I always wonder about how pilots control an aircraft to keep the safety of many lives at priority and work the weather… the unchangeable…in order to do so.
Perhaps overcoming a storm is figuratively like overcoming the bad effects that come into one's life. Accepting that some things cannot change and rising above them is something that we can do in our everyday life, just as it is something that we see pilots do regularly in their job.
It is interesting to highlight how the small commonalities of life can easily be referenced to something greater, like overcoming a storm by passing above the rain clouds is as similar to overcoming the negative effects in life that cannot be changed. Noticing the details of this journey that we call life allow us to make connections to our experiences every day.
