Let it Rain

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to past, it’s about learning to dance in the rain”

How do we go about dancing in the rain when our vision seems cloudy? It’s almost as if we don’t know what to expect when a rain storm comes our way. Well…at least for me that is.

I’ve had quite an interesting last couple of years that brought on many rain storms and cloudy days. At times, I didn’t think I could go on. I contemplated giving up on all my goals and dreams. You know what? I actually did for about a solid year. Day in and day out, I didn’t put forth any effort to see past my dreary days. I’m far from perfect so I’d like to think it’s ok that I allowed myself my time to dance at my own pity party. However, where did it get me?

Simple. Nowhere! A WASTED YEAR of energy and creativity. Psychology says we shouldn’t be so hard on ourselves as a moment of self-reflection is needed. As I said before, I’m all for a little dance BUT I’ve learned it can’t just be when the sun is out. Persistence and endurance is key. These two things will take you further than you ever thought you could go. It hasn’t been a cake walk BUT I’m well on my way.

So…how do you learn to dance when you’re vision is cloudy? Put on a raincoat, boots and put your umbrella up! Nothing can stop you but you.
