“When you’re in a storm, look for the rainbows.” — Marlene Dillon
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.
