“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain”
This quote is probably my most favourite quote in the whole damn universe, as it so clearly breathes an accent built on living, not just waiting for the right time to start or restart the exact life path for ourselves. I see so many people just waiting for that right moment! When is that right moment anyway?
I love how the quote speaks about not avoiding the storm but yet continuing despite the rain and doing what you most want to do. Waiting for that storm, the not so nice conditions just makes time pass, BUT seriously what gets done while you wait? Nothing – absolutely nothing gets done while we wait.
Learning to dance in the rain, with the noise and all of the mess that life can bring, helps us in a weird way to enjoy the continuing storms that come and go in our forwarding journey.So being able to dance and enjoy life, no matter what the conditions bring, is vital for our mind, body & souls health. We all face storms in our lives and it’s up to us, individually on how we will respond to the challenging noise and mess that it brings. Will we hide, waiting for the storm to pass, or will we continue with moving forward in our lives, stepping across even the most dark and dangerous weather conditions. We need to make a choice?.
The quote calls it waiting, but I call it wasting time! What is happening by waiting, is that we and our life is just drifting across space and that does nothing to move us forward to a life that wants and needs to be lived .
Rather than, losing that time that can’t ever come back we are better off taking action. Which is why, in analogy terms, its just best to step out from the shelter and into the storm and just get soaking wet. By being out in the middle of the rain, it’s vital that we learn to dance in the midst of those storm clouds, so at very least we can do is, attempt to fix the problem that’s causing all the rain. As another quote, quite clearly says, “ rain, hail or shine – life goes on & so must I “. Saying that we are dancing in the rain is enjoyable isn’t exactly true but it is showing that we are doing something, and even if it is not the best time, or with the best weather, we are making the most of a troubling time by trying something different and that is enjoyable in again a strange kind of way.
So in my opinion, choosing to wait for the storm to pass, is equivalent to letting opportunities slip by. I know for sure, that I have hidden from some massive storms and left chances of working with people and or opportunities slip past me. I choose not to do that anymore, as I don’t want to leave anything hanging on a woulda, coulda, shoulda hook anymore. Life is worth chancing and if it means standing or dancing out in the rain, hail or sleet I will do it. For you reading this now, how many storms are you hiding from? While we all have our reasons and or excuses, because i did too, in the end, we either are doing things or we are not doing things, it’s our own choice.
Our life is our life, we can choose to be miserable or happy! I know what I choose, what will you choose – dancing in the rain, or waiting for the continuing storm to pass?
