We landed. First time back. This time on a regular plane, yet a “pop-up” airport.

Destruction, devestation and mounds of ruin - are still in sight. The hurricane is no secret.

But, people move on with resilience and strength. Almost as if they pushed aside the piles and made a path right through for themselves. Among the broken homes, stands a proud functioning storefront. Amidst piles of roofs, broken doors and furniture, stands a bulldozer - plowing the ground and leveling the soil - preparing it for future use. Cars and trucks zip by monstrous boats, misplaced at the curbside, awaiting their turn to be pulled in. Life continues. People have gotten their businesses back in working order, they have pieced their homes back together and fixed their vehicles into a functioning state again. And yet, all around - tower empty hotels, overturned cars and airplanes, boarded up windows, and blown out homes.

In life, not always can we get rid of the negative thoughts, memories, people, or habits that hold us back from moving forward. Sometimes, we have to simply push it all aside and MOVE, paying no attention to the obstacles that stand in our path.  When things are difficult and it seems nearly impossible to cope, we need to remember to keep focused, look ahead and make baby steps in the right direction - towards a more positive, brighter and better future. Yes, there will always be the reminder right near us, that will try and pull us back and keep things stagnant. But, if we can keep our heads held high and aim for the top we will reach our goals and dreams. And the other "stuff" that was once in our way will become a part of our success.

With resilience, strength and positivity we will succeed in brightening up the darkest moments, and we will bring hope to bleakest of situations.
