I Hope You Dance!

A close friend of mine has for several years repeated that life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, that it is about learning to dance in the rain. Well, I know even she borrowed the quote. It is however a motto by which she lives her life, one that I attempt to mimic. Life is not a bed of roses. We all know that; we hear it all the time. I find that Jenna’s philosophy to enjoy life’s simple pleasures despite the challenges to be an extra ordinary plan. I agree that we should strive to make the best of what we have been able to accomplish while at the same time  giving ‘faith a fighting chance’ as Lee Ann Womack puts it in her beautiful song, I hope you dance. I have found myself on several occasions in the past procrastinating, planning to complete a project, intending to hang out with family and friends or even simply watching a movie at the cinema. Now I realise you cannot simply live one part of your life and hold off another for later. We must learn to dance in the storm, to make it through our hardships and emerge stronger and better and that even when we lose one love we can rejoice in the hope of a brighter future.
And finally, take a moment to listen to my inspirational song for the week, Lee Ann Womack, I hope you dance.
