Swaying In The Wind

Thought For The Day. things that I am learning

Life seems to be all about swaying in the wind, Standing tall but being flexible enough to withstand the storms. It is also about being able to reinvent yourself at any age and at any time. Sometimes life gives you time to plan for those changes and sometimes they come in a split second. Sometimes in the darkest of days you are able to see the clearest. Sometimes the dark days linger and make you go deeper within yourself to find those answers. I have learned much more about myself when faced with those challenges then I have when everything is running smoothly. Now, don't get me wrong, I really like it when things are running smoothly and everything is easy. But, let's face it, it's not life. Life is all about hills and valleys, straight and winding and sometimes just plain swinging sideways and hanging on by your teeth. But, what I am learning is that the rainbow can always be found in the end. Sometime you have to make your own rainbow. It may not look like everyone else' s rainbow, but it is uniquely yours. Nobody can take away your rainbow unless you give it away or allow someone to take it from you,

This is going to be my last full week of having any free time. I am going back to school full time and working full time. It is really going to be hard to fit in any creative time. But in the end I will be capturing another rainbow.

I am going to try very hard to post to my friends here in blogland as much as I can, but there are only so many hours in the day. I continue to hope that your rainbow is bright and shining without a dimmer in sight.
