Everyone has ‘storms’ in their life. It’s everything and anything that can wreak havoc on your daily life. It can be self-induced, or can be caused by outside sources. No matter what your storm may be, it’s what you do with that storm that matters.
“Life is 10% what happens to you, and 90% how you react to it”.
Do you dance or do you simply get drenched ?
Making lemonade out of lemons its not always easy, but it sure makes the ride more bearable, and not as long! The next time it rains on your parade, don’t be mad at the rain. It’s not the rain’s fault. You didn’t make it rain. Don’t be mad that it’s not clear and sunny. Don’t point fingers and place blame.
In the end, you can’t change the rain, but you can change how the rain affects you. As you’re cleaning up the ‘mess’ that the rain left… Do you want to laugh at the thoughts of your dancing, or will you remain angry at getting all wet?
Get up and dance in the rain! Life is too short not to enjoy every moment.
