(Video) Learning To Dance In The Rain – The Miracles Store
"Life's not about waiting for the storm to pass... It's about learning to dance in the rain." ~ Viviane Greene

We create our reality by choosing our thoughts, feelings, and beliefs. For that reason, when we have bad days sometimes we might wonder what we did to bring it upon ourselves.

Sure, that's one way to look at it...

But what if we just choose, from that moment on, to look forward?

Each moment is a new opportunity to choose our internal experience of reality, regardless of all the moments that came before it. So when you're feeling stuck in a rut, remember that one secret to turning it all around is gratitude.

And when you're needing to make that reminder feel more real, watch this motivational video.

DANCING BETWEEN THE RAINDROPS

“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining
is let it rain.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Running through our songs of rain
with fears that we might melt,
camouflaged emotions,
shadows
that we’ve felt.

Distant thunder on the heels
of lightning’s lethal dart
piercing through these walls of pain
weep sorrows
of the heart.

Tempestuous gales, tumult of life
sodden with mistrust
faith drenched by squalls of grieving,
yields
catatonic rust.

Life’s pendulum swings both ways,
we call this right and wrong,
good and bad, and pass or fail,
the language
of our song.

And when we have the butterflies,
when we tap into sensation,
we discover that they’re there all right,
but flying
in formation.

Happiness does not just happen,
unless it is our choice,
our lyrics sung as hollow words
until
we find our voice.

so…
Let’s dance between the raindrops,
feel the mud between our toes,
celebrate the sunny days,
reveal
what our soul knows,

Find gratitude for easy times
muster courage for what aches,
we’ll never know how strong we are
until we dig,
for what it takes.

Running through our songs of rain
no fear for what is felt,
living life wholeheartedly,
we play
the hand were dealt.

Dancing between the raindrops…

A few weeks ago Michelle and I had just left a medical consultation with her oncologist and were hoping to come away with some answers, a strategy of hope with a positive outcome. We got none of this. What we left with was discouragement and disappointment with the unmistakable odor of defeat. With heavy hearts we walked to the elevator that would take us out of the basement of the hospital (the symbolism was not lost on me). There were speakers in the ceiling above us and one of Michelle’s favorite song started playing. I was stunned to see Michelle inexplicably grinning from ear to ear, miming the lyrics and start dancing like she was having the best moment of her life. Who does that?

Michelle, that’s who, she plays the hand life has dealt her and goes dancing between the raindrops.
