Rainy Weather...



This has long been a favourite quote of mine. Partially, because I love to dance, and cannot really imagine my life without it.....I get a fantastic mental image of dancing in the rain everytime I read this!

In essence, that is not what the quote is about. I have had plenty of times in my life where the storm has been raging- uncontrollable, dark, threatening......and it has taken over every aspect of my being. These times can be scary, uncertain, and seemingly neverending. But everyone experiences them right? And it is something that you cannot run away from.

Life isn't always going to be candy canes and kisses.....there are some really tough times, times where you have to decide whether to fight or fly. Your gut reaction might be to run, cut your losses and get out. Sometimes, this is the right decision. Often though, you must find the courage to stand and fight. Things that are really worth having in life don't come easy, and you have to weather the storms to see the rainbows and the beautiful rays of sunlight bursting through the cloud.


When the storm is overhead and it feels like life is running away from you, take a step back. Take a break and think about the things that matter the most. In those stormy times, life can't just stop...it has to keep going. And so do you, or else you may miss out on something spectacular when the storm decides to clear.

So, either literally or figuratively, take some time to dance in the rain....it is good for your soul, good for your heart, and makes the storms a lot easier to withstand.
