Throughout our lives, we go through times of turbulence. Times that we wish we didn’t have to go through, that we wish would just pass by quickly in the night, and that we’d never even be aware of them. But you see, the thing is we have to go through these times. We have to experience the hardships to really appreciate the good stuff. There’s this phrase that is totally corny but I absolutely love, and it’s about not waiting for the rain to pass, but rather learning to dance through the storm. And I honestly and truly believe that. It is so easy to get bogged down by the gray skies and the rain storms that we forget about finding the joy in the rain. We forget that the rain is necessary, that it replenishes the earth and clears the way for new life. We forget about the rainbows that fill the skies once the rain has passed. We search the skies before the storm waiting for it to arrive, but often forget to take a peek outside after the rain is gone. And that’s often when the most beautiful things come out to play.
So today, friends, whatever rain cloud is covering your sunny skies, remember to embrace it, and dance your way through it. And don’t ever forget to scan the skies after the rain has passed. Because you never know when a rainbow might come out to play.
