Today, and for the last few weeks, I’ve been dealing with some things. This week they got a little more demanding and I was feeling exhausted from it all. I decided to surrender to what is and just keep rolling. A few minutes ago, someone told me that they were led to give me a gift. Although that gift didn’t solve the problems, the gesture was such a blessing that I needed to take a second to shift focus and be grateful. 🌈

So that’s my recommendation to you. Whether it’s a blessing out of nowhere, finding your favorite soup is on sale, or discovering a new series to binge watch this weekend, notice the rainbows. If it’s a phone call received, or a meal that turned out perfectly, or that person who rarely even looks in your direction gave you the hint of a smile, notice the rainbows. If you’re a stormy season, and you’re being hit with back to back trials, I don’t care how small a smile worthy moment is, pay attention to that rainbow. 🌈

We have to find ways to interrupt the flow of what doesn’t feel good and occasionally we find ourselves in the midst of a storm with no apparent end in sight. It is in these moments, that we have to train ourselves to take a minute and look for the rainbows. 🌈
