Get your happy on!

They always say happiness comes to those who wait. But I say why wait? Get out there and create the happiness you are seeking. Only you know what will make you happy. You need to be in charge of that. So I have a question today for you to ponder. It's a simple question, but may take some thinking.

If you could put 5 "things" in a box to make you happy. What would they be?
I put "things" in quotes because these things can be anything you can dream up. They can be feelings. They can be objects. They can be places. I am so curious to know what those things would be for you.
This post will have a part 2. So think about this for me. Leave me your honest answers!

Learn to dance in the rain

It's Tuesday night and a big storm just blew through here in central NY. I always love the sky after a storm. It's so clear and free of all things bad. It gets me thinking about life and how the storm is metaphorical to a human life. We are always waiting for a rainbow, but no one ever wants to have to go through the storm to see it. This brings me to one of my favorite quotes by Vivian Green:

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

 We can never be sure of what's coming up around the corner but if we live in fear of our own destiny we may never really live. Today is a gift. Get out there and live it to its fullest. Come to terms with the things you cannot change. Be thankful for the life you have. That storm that came through could have caused a lot of damage, but you are still here. Breathing. Making memories. Someone else may not of had the same chance. 

Even when your world gets turned sideways, look at the beauty. It's all around you. There is always something there to pick you up.  I am going to live that life today. I hope you will join me.

Happy Wednesday my friends :)
