RAINDROPS

2 Comments

It rains a lot in Pittsburgh in June…this year, really a lot. However, there are a couple of things to keep in mind when it feels like the sun is never coming out again. Don’t be afraid of a few raindrops, ok, well a lot, and know that eventually the sun will shine, if only for a little while, so be ready to enjoy.

This is sort of like life because we wouldn’t truly appreciate the sunshine or how good the rain can feel and sound if we don’t make the effort to find its splendor. I don’t know who wrote the saying “Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain” but that certainly is true. We have to keep our eyes open for the opportunities to dance in the rain, close our eyes and hear it hitting the roof, and then being able to bask in the moments of sunshine.

They say every life has a little rain. Well, some folks have to make their way through a tsunami or two. I’m lucky because I’ve learned a couple of secrets along the way. Keep your eyes open for the break in the clouds and bask in that sunshine. Always have a raincoat ready so you can get out there and boogie in the raindrops.

  1. How about skip the raincoat and just dance with pure abandon? Sometimes, the wetter the better! Thanks for the reminder that without the rain, we don’t have rainbows!

  2. Sounds good to me! Thanks Wendy.
