Daily Quote: Opening Door

“When one door closes another door opens; but we so often look so long and so regretfully upon the closed door,
that we do not see the ones which open for us.”

-Alexander Graham Bell

Daily Quote: Dance in the Rain

the beautiful world, I thank God I am alive.”

Learning to Dance in the Rain

After an unusually long and cold winter, spring is finally here! Although snow and blistery weather may no longer be a problem, spring showers can, at times, be an inconvenience. When I find myself wishing away the rain, I remember an old saying: April showers bring May flowers. Instantly, my mindset changes and I look forward to the “good stuff” that the rain brings.

My two good friends Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher have done a wonderful job of reminding us that “Life’s not about waiting for the storms to pass….it’s about learning to dance in the rain.” If, like me, you find yourself a little down because of one of “life’s showers,” I think you’ll find Learning to Dance in the Rain to be both invigorating and memorable. I know I did.

Remember to pass this along to your friends, family, and colleagues so they, too, can be inspired.

Best Wishes,

Finding Joy

Excerpted from Learning to Dance in the Rain by Mac Anderson and BJ Gallagher
“Gratitude unlocks the fullness of life. It turns what we have into enough, and more. It turns denial into acceptance, chaos to order, confusion to clarity. It can turn a meal into a feast, a house into a home, a stranger into a friend. Gratitude makes sense of our past, brings peace for today, and creates a vision for tomorrow.”
~Melody Beattie, therapist, author

Someone wise once said, “Circumstances don’t determine your character—they reveal it.” Who we are as human beings is revealed most clearly during times of struggle, hardship, pain, and suffering. It’s easy to be a good person when things are going great. But when times get tough, that’s when you’ll really find out stuff you’re made of.

Nowhere is this more true than with regard to gratitude. Are you grateful when the storm clouds gather, and it rains on your parade? Can you find gratitude in your heart when you don’t get what you want? Do you feel grateful when illness strikes, loved ones don’t show up for you, jobs and careers disappoint, and nothing seems to be going your way?

Gratitude is not a fair weather virtue. True gratitude means appreciating your life no matter what the storms may bring. Is simply being alive gift enough for you to feel grateful?

“You have within you right now, everything you need to deal with whatever the world can throw at you.”
~Brian Tracy, motivational speaker and author
