Today I had what I am now calling "an upside down rainbow day". I set out to do errands and other stuff I do in a day, and when I got out of my car at the pediatrician's office, I saw something I have never seen before....an upside down fucking rainbow! I whipped out my camera to capture this incredible beauty that Mother Nature (or whatever you believe in) was giving us in that moment! Click, click, click....got it!
I was like a crazy kid in a candy store....or, because today is 10/31, I will say I was like an overzealous child ready to burst out the door to trick or treat. I was smiling. Smiling huge! I think I might have even been giggling a little. Giddy? Yeah, that. Wait...and the rainbow was smiling too! See it?
I felt the need to share this awesomeness with LOTS of people..lol...like the people at the front desk of the pediatrician's office, the peeps working at Starbucks...It was just such an invigorating experience, I was bursting with "must share".
As I drove to my next stop, I thought about how seeing these unreal sights may not always happen....due to MY mind, my "set of eyes" in any given moment. I received great news from my dermatologist a few days ago- BENIGN results...but for the week I was waiting to hear, I'm not sure I would have even seen this upside down rainbow.
I love this reminder that everyday may not be good, but that something good may be found in each day. I NEED this reminder it times of fear. I need to remember that nothing lasts forever...and that that is a good thing.
Here's to the days on this path we are all on....that we be reminded of the importance of always looking for the blessings in each day. As the wise philosopher Heraclitus said, "The only thing constant is change."
So, what I tell myself, and thankfully, others tell me, is....cherish the good while it lasts and HOLD ON during the rough times...this too shall pass.
