Continue to dance in the rain

By Shelley Caruso

The morning always greets the horizon with color...

The disappointment that sometimes enters our lives is just a period of reset.

A reminder of how fragile all our tomorrows are, but at the same time how resilient the soul is.

Adjusting your journey just for a time keeps us from becoming shipwrecked.

Sometimes storms can take the wind out of your sail, but when the storm comes pull down your sails and weather the storm.

I have been in a lack of energy. I have just realized I have been fighting to gain it back, which is actually more draining...

My mind keeps racing to do this and do that and I am watching life speed past me.

I’m so afraid I’m missing out on something when all the while I am, because my focus is just on that.

It may take me a little time to get my groove back, but learning how to get there is part of the process.

Today I choose to enjoy the sunrise with a grateful heart, knowing my time now is to continue to dance in the rain.
