Are you like me?  do you have a bunch of posts or post ideas in draft form that you just can’t seem to get done?  I have had one that is now 5 months in the working and still not finished.  I was going to finish it today, but, now I am not.  Today, I wanted to write about a quote that I found.

Now looking back on this blog, my most popular post was a podcast based on another quote, “Light a Candle instead of Cursing the Darkness.”    That one is about doing.  DOING.  Doing something.  Don’t complain about what you are given, do something about it.

Today, another quote with the same message.  Ready?  “Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain.”  How is that?  Another, go out there, and do something.  Go do something positive in the face of what previously was considered diversity.  Do I do this?  Sometimes.  Should I do it more?  Most definitely.

So, how do you go about turning the adversity into the positive?  Most days I don’t know.  Some days I only want the adversity so I don’t seem so bad.  I don’t know what the answer is, the deep part of yourself that you have to find in order to go out there and do the positive.  I have been trying to find it for 39 years now, and I still don’t know.

I have been up and down my whole life, trying to find the positives, and, when I do find those, keep those positives in mind to create more.  I can’t say that it has worked, but it is there somewhere.  One of these days I will find out how to keep a hold of it and not piss it away like I have so many times.

How do you deal with adversity?  How do you go about dancing in the metaphorical rain?  Let me know, I need the help.
