There is no one I cannot teach something to, and no one I cannot learn something from. ~unknown source
This past weekend, Colorado received some much needed rain. The area has been in a draught and under a fire danger for 2 months now.
On Saturday, I spent a much needed day in the garage fixing, tweaking, hanging shelves and cleaning up. During that time the clouds started to roll in. It got dark quickly and the wind picked up tremendously. Then the sky opened up and the rain poured down.
Like many people would do, I gathered my tools from outside so they wouldn’t get wet. I brought my tools into the garage and began to shut the garage door to keep the rain out. At that time, I heard voices of little ones on the driveway and in the street.
My son, Noah and his friend were outside and never thought to stop playing street hockey. As I watched them it poured rain for next 20 minutes. And at one point the puck was floating away in a stream. They continued to play while the rain kept pouring down and down. Their attitudes where one of not a care in the world. It didn’t matter that they were soaking wet or that there was so much water the puck didn’t glide across the asphalt street. They just wanted to play!
What you can learn from this story:
- You can have little moments of fun no matter what the circumstances
- You should find time everyday to play
- It’s not important what the weather is outside to have fun
- It’s doesn’t always matter what others think of you
- Be willing to enjoy the “rain storms” that come your way
How do you balance what people think of you and really being yourself and having fun?
