A while ago I got one of those inspirational emails that I usually a) roll my eyes at b) delete without actually fully reading, but for whatever reason on that particular day, I decided to scroll through it. One of the anecdotal stories I came across was about a person who, while driving, encountered a terrible rainstorm. It began to downpour torrentially, almost to the point where there was no visibility, and all around the driver, cars were pulling over to the shoulder to wait it out. This particular driver, however, kept on driving, slowly inching his way through it until finally the clouds separated and blue skies once again shone overhead. And although the drive was harrowing, and at times he was uncertain if he would make it, in the end, the storm ended up lasting less time for him than the others because he kept pushing his way through instead of simply waiting for it to pass him.
