*Perspective* can make all the difference

There are tough times we need to go through in order to grow and flourish.
Looking back, I now realize that the perspective of a situation can make all the difference.
If you see a challenging day as a crappy day, then that is what you will experience.
However, if you see a challenging day for what it is: a challenging day, and you accept it without resisting it, you could change your perspective and change your life.
Just because it rains doesn’t mean that the sun won’t shine again.
Trust yourself, the Universe, or whomever you call the higher power, that you are where you are supposed to be and will be guided where you need to go.
LIFE IS HAPPENING FOR YOU, not TO YOU.

Rain: Let’s Embrace it!

Living in the Northwest, it is almost impossible to avoid the rain. Actually, let me re-phrase that, it is impossible. Over the past couple of days, of non-stop rain showers, I have realized that there is something special about the rain; it is Nature at its finest. The trees, rivers, and every other aspect of Nature’s surroundings, embrace it and take what they need in order to thrive. So rather than complaining about the rain, I have decided to find joy in the rain and accept it gracefully for what it is: Pure and Natural Beauty.

Mulan *Quote* Rainy & Sunny Days.

This quote is true for all of us. We all witness and experience days of sunshine and days of rain, literally and figuratively. The rainy days pass and we welcome the sunshine with open arms. When we open our arms for the sun, we hold the knowledge from the previous rainy days, which helps guide us on the path we are currently traveling on.

Rainy days build character, challenge us to become better individuals, and awaken us to our true potential. And although our vision becomes blurry during those moments of down pour, it is our responsibility to remember that the rain is guiding and helping us, rather than making our lives miserable. We must take on a new meaning for these rainy days, as to not allow them to effect us so negatively. Is is not an easy task, but when practiced, the most rewarding feeling! 🙂

As Paulo Coelho once said, If you only walk on Sunny Days you will never reach your destination.

We must live for both sunny and rainy days for us to reach our true potential. Be grateful for the rainy days, as they will lead you to greater days!
