“Life isn’t about avoiding the storm, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” ~ Unknown
We all live pretty comfortable lives and it’s easy to skip through in the sunny times, but it’s what we do in the face of adversity that defines the type of person we are. We can choose to hide from the bad weather in our lives, or we can choose to embrace the storm and learn to appreciate the gifts that it brings.
You have to want not simply to be alive, but to LIVE the life you have been given. It is certainly easier to want to shelter yourself until the bad weather passes, but you may be passing up a great opportunity to throw caution to the wind and free yourself in the rain that storm provides.
If you take the risk, that cleansing shower of rain may wash away any negativity or fear and leave you feeling refreshed and ready to face those tumultuous thunder clouds. You have to seize every opportunity presented in the wake of that storm and make the most of those mottled grey skies.
As George Washington Carver said – “When you do the common things in life in an uncommon way, that is when you command the attention of the world.”
Let the world see you throw your inhibitions back in the face of that storm and dance in that rain like it’s your last dance. Show the world what you’re made of!!
