Sharing the lessons along the way…

sunrise rainbow

Today has been one of those days where I am glad I know who I am and what I stand for in this life.  Today I am happy that I do not depend on others’ opinions of me to know it in my soul.

My day began with seeing my very first sunrise rainbow.  It was pretty incredible peeking out of the darkness of rain clouds moving in from the gulf of Mexico.  Its colors were brilliant and it was a great way to start the day.

There are days that test just how much resolve you have toward the mission I have written so much about in recent weeks, however.  There are days that test the strength of your character and perhaps even challenge that integrity in ways you might not have expected.  Today was one of those.

And at the end of it, I still believe in rainbows and I still believe in you.  And I believe in my ability to stay focused, authentic and move forward with the mission in mind.

The idealist in me has taken enough hits to know that there will always be rainbows.

No matter how dark the sky might seem at any given time, the sun always rises with a purpose and sets with a purpose.  You can bank on it.  In between, if we are paying attention, we might even see a few rainbows.

Sometimes we need days like to today to remind us that no matter what, we are in this not just on days of sunshine and good times, but during dark days too.

Day nine of the writing challenge feeling more resolved than ever.

  1. Love this! Being optimistic isn’t the easiest of things, especially when life isn’t going so well, but it’s always the best option and power to anyone making that effort!



  2. Was directed here by a Pepper Crate. hehe. Anyway, I’m with you in the resolve department. 🙂


  3. I love this! I’m usually an eternal optimist, but sometimes I devolve into an optimistic cynic… It’s a great reminder that the worst days often produce the best rainbows.


  4. What an inspiring series! I love the idea of mission statements for individuals as well as couples and families. My husband and I used to do them when we first read Stephen Covey, but lately, haven’t given it much thought. Maybe, we’ll make some time again. Thanks.


  5. You speak of self realization, perseverance and faith in purpose. All things that I personally aspire to. 🙂

    I love this post. 🙂
