It appears to be another fabulously wet British summer and with all the fear and name calling flying on Facebook with Brexit I think we could do with a little bit of sunshine and kindness for July.
Things may feel stormy right now but that isn’t necessarily a bad thing. If you want things to change you have to be willing to let go of the old and trust that everything will work out OK.
So with all the challenges that are going on right now, for you personally, and for the world at large, here are 3 things you can learn from the rainbow to help overcome them:
- No matter how grey things look you can always shine your light
The rainbow doesn’t care what’s going on around her. She knows that she is responsible for her own life. During a storm it may seem like things are falling apart but she doesn’t say ‘oh it’s too wet and gloomy today I’m not going out in this’ she lets her beauty and brilliance shine whatever.
She doesn’t let anything stand in her way. When people see her they feel a sense of hope and she lifts them up on an otherwise dark day.
Don’t let outside influences dull your light. Be your beautiful, brilliant self every day, you never know who your light will touch and what a difference it will make.
Even though things may be difficult we can still be kind, respect each other’s opinions and smile, it costs nothing but might mean the world to someone.
- Our challenges are the bridge to where we want to be
In many traditions the rainbow represents unity. It’s seen as a bridge between the earth and the sky.
Our challenges are the bridge between where we are and where we want to be. It’s through our challenges that we grow the most but we must face them head on, not push them away.
What challenge are you facing right now? What positive lessons are they teaching you? When you learn the lesson you can move past the challenge.
Last week I went through my worst fear in terms of my career. It could have flawed me but I didn’t let it. I looked at it straight in the face, as painful as it was, and I said what are you here to teach me? I reflected on its lessons and it proved to be the perfect bridge from where I was to where I want to be. I had some uncertainty and the ‘storm’ helped me to find the clarity I needed.
- You can focus on the puddles or you can find the rainbow
After the rain if you’re so busy grumbling at the puddles under your feet you will forget to look up and see the beauty of the rainbow.
If you want things to change you have to be willing to get uncomfortable for a while. Change never happens in the comfort zone. Look at the bigger picture of your life. Where are you heading? What are your goals and desires?
Don’t stand in the puddle (problem) and expect to find hope, to find hope you have to look up, you have to believe that there is a pot of gold at the end of all of this and be determined in your pursuit to find it.
Don’t let your challenges define you, let them refine you.
