As I was growing up Spring always reminded me of the Disney song from Bambi “Drip, drip, drop little April showers”…because it always seemed to be raining. Of course a lot of that was because of where I lived, but it was also because Spring is a time when as the seasons change, rain passes through to make sure that the tulips and other spring flowers are watered enough.
It’s hard sometimes to see that rain is not just there to inconvenience us, but more that every thing that happens, happens for us not to us! I love this phrase that I learned from the amazing Tony Robbins because I have been known to get a little down when things are not going my way…which if I were to be completely honest could be a lot of the time. One that thing I really work on is to focus on the things I am grateful for, rather than noticing the things that drive me crazy or frustrate me. I figure if there is ever a time to put that to the test, it is Spring, because this season that holds such great hope also brings with it frustration. Just when you think that the sunshine is here to stay, the next day is freezing and you are back to wearing winter coats or raincoats.
Today’s post shows that being cold is not something to be frustrated about. You can put a smile on your face, and realize that if its cold or rainy, there is a greater purpose for that and you can still find joy in the journey!
The coat in this post is one that I picked up on a trip to Venice, but you can find a similar one along with the pants and pumps by clicking a link below…
