“When it rains, look for rainbows. When it’s dark, look for stars.”
What a wonderfully positive quote! We definitely focus on the things that aren’t so pleasant most of the time. We dwell on the troubles life throws our way, and refuse to see the silver linings in the storm clouds. We see obstacles as negative barriers that halt our journey because we cannot easily get around them.
We sometimes detest rain, even though we need it. And we sometimes dread the darkness, even though it helps us see the stars better.
It’s all about our outlook on life. It can be pessimistic or it can be filled with optimism. I don’t know about you, but I plan to look for rainbows and stars more.
