Learn to dance in the rain

"Life's not about waiting for the storms to pass...It's about learning to dance in the rain." ~ Vivian Greene

Are you hunkered down, laying low, waiting for the economy to get better? I am optimistic that things are going to get better, but I don't have a crystal ball and I don't know for sure. No one knows the future for sure. Right now things can be scary but they can also be great.

What if you decided to appreciate where you are right now? What if you decided there are some positive things to be gained - right now. You get to choose how you view your life and your situation. What do you choose? Are you waiting or dancing?

Now is the time to dance, because the longer you just wait, the easier it is to keep waiting...and waiting. The perfect time to dance will never come. Dance while things are imperfect and things will get better pretty darn fast.

So start dancing, now is the time.

I was looking for the person who originated this quote, and your blog came up. It was the first source using the quote that gave credit.

Thanks--G

That's right. Just get up and Dance! Life Starts When You Do.

By the way...that's the title of another book I am writing, and I'd love to hear your stories of dancing in the rain.

Thank you so much for all you have mentioned. My relationship is now off because he is worried about his business and possibly closing. I have forwarded it to him.
