Dance in the rain

“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass. It’s about learning how to dance in the rain.” ~ Vivian Greene

Too true. Life isn’t about waiting for all to be perfect. For the current trials and tribulations to be over. For the current crisis to pass. It is being at peace in the middle of the less-than-perfect moment. In the middle of the moment in which you do not want to be in.

Hard to remember. Hard to practice. But being happy, in the midst of joys and sorrows, holds the promise of freedom…your life is no longer dictated by things beyond your control. Your interpretation of the events and your decision on how to respond is key.

Now if only I could remember this. If only I could put this in practice. More than occasionally. More than in a blue moon. Just more.
