“The way I see it, if you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.”–Dolly Parton
I laughed when I read that quote because it’s so true. If you want the beautiful rainbows in life, you have to take the rain with it.
Sometimes the rain comes in the form a thunderstorm. When the storm comes keeping thoughts on the rainbow and not the rain. Focusing on the outcome (the rainbow). If you can put up with the rain, the storms that come, on the other side of that is the joy you prayed for.
Take time to view the beauty around you. If you want to have real and lasting change. Take time to appreciate the simple things. Sunsets, sunrise, rain, snow, kids playing, dog parks, you can visit parks to take a moment to just be in the moment.
