“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass; it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
– Vivian Greene
I saw this quote and thought it was pretty appropriate following a Thankful Thursday where I talked about how great the weather was.
Not everyday is going to have perfect weather. Most days will not align exactly into our plans. Some days will seem like the storm is never going to pass.
When things aren’t going our way, our first instinct is to lock-down and wait out the storm. That is much easier than going out in the rain and getting wet.
But that usually means we keep waiting and waiting and waiting. We end up wasting good opportunities because we can’t see past the storm clouds.
Some days the storm clouds are so big that we think they will never go way.
But we need to realize that if they aren’t going way, there is no use trying to wait them out.
These are the days that we need to learn to dance in the rain.
