Life has a way of sending storms our way. In my own personal life I have had more then my fair share of storms. These storms have all been hard.
In the past I have chosen to let the rain get to me and I have chosen to be depressed and mope around. It is perfectly normal to want to give up and just quit, but if we let the storms bring us down then we are going to drown. Giving up isn’t going to solve anything. It’s not going to make everything better. It won’t heal the pain. If you don’t try to fight back then you will never know if you can win this battle.
We need to stop letting the storms bring us down. We need to dance in the rain. Every storm that comes our way makes us stronger. I don’t know why bad things happen to good people, but I do know one thing:
Every storm, every tear, every silent cry, and every battle that I fought has made me who I am today. It has made me stronger and braver. I discovered that by not giving up I am stronger and braver then I ever thought I could be.
So stand in the rain and dance if you can. Storms aren’t forever. At the end of every storm is a rainbow waiting to break out. When you fall down pick yourself up. Don’t let the dark clouds of your past stand in the way of your future.
