"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass. It is about learning to dance in the rain."
So often we find ourselves waiting for a storm of one sort or another to pass.
You guys! We can not sit here waiting for life to be perfect before we enjoy ourselves. We need to take conscious action to make it what we want it to be.
We need to eliminate thoughts like, "Life will be better when ... (insert your mantra here)." Mine would be something like. "Life will be better when my husband finds a new job."
No! Life will not be better then! It needs to be great right now! Personally, I do not want to waste one single day "waiting." I spend my days doing!
Sounds fine in theory, but how does one get from "waiting" to dancing in the rain? It's up to every individual. But for me, It's all about choice. I can try to enjoy the extra time with hubby while he is home. Enjoy his extra help around the house and with the kids. Enjoy lunch dates....the list goes on. I could look at this time as a gift instead of a curse. Easy? No.. Possible? Yes! Do I do it perfectly? Absolutely not! But I keep trying! All it is is a choice.
Do you see that?
So, the next time you notice you are just waiting for things to get better ... go dance in the rain instead!
