It’s raining here in Colorado.
I’m not one of those people who love rainy days. A couple of my kiddos do, but not me. Rain interferes with things I want to do, like walking in the morning with my friend Mary. And it steals away those sunny days Colorado is known for. I’m all for the sunshine.
But there’s no getting around rainy days … and there’s no getting around puddles in our paths, either. We have options, of course. At the first sign of rain, we can stop walking. When we come upon a puddle in our path, we can veer off course and walk along the shoulder. But sometimes the shoulder is rocky. Or it’s a ravine. Or it’s nonexistent.
Sometimes to keep moving forward, we’re gonna get our feet wet. We’re gonna be uncomfortable. We just have to choose to take the next step through the puddle. Or maybe, just maybe, we should adopt the sweet abandon of a child and splash through the puddle with laughter.
In Your Words: So are you a rainy day person? What do you like about rainy days? And what helps you walk through the puddles in your paths?[Tweet “In Others’ Words: Of Puddles and Progress #InOthersWords #lifequotes #progress”] [Tweet “”Every path has a puddle.” #quotes #JohnRay #perspective”]
