Motivation Monday :: Dancing in the Rain

Rain is a big part of who I am. I've never had any problems with it. I was raised in Seattle, among the overcast skies with plenty of drizzly days.

I love the way that when it rains, everything smells fresh. The grass looks greener and it helps the flowers grow.

Last weekend, it rained on our wedding day. It wasn't just a drizzle or Seattle mist style rain, it was pouring! That was the one day I started to question my love for the rain. But then you have to realize all the good that the rain does. If you can't appreciate it, it will bog you down and alter your mood. Especially on a day as big as your wedding day, if it rains, try to look around at all the good. Friends and family still came together to witness as we joined together, and celebrated our love. 

To express my recent lack of harmony with the rain, I decided to try my hand at writing out a favorite quote dealing with the subject.

"Life isn't about waiting for the storm to pass. It's about learning to dance in the rain." 

I love this! And we danced the night away to celebrate last weekend. The best thing is that now I get to celebrate my love as we dance in the sun and rain all the days of our life.
