A few years ago, I was driving home when I spotted a rainbow on the horizon. It caught my attention, because it has literally been years since I’d seen a rainbow. As I stared at the natural prism of colors that sat in the sky, I wondered why I hadn’t seen a rainbow in a long time.
Were there less rainbows these days? I remember seeing them all the time when I was a kid. Why weren’t there the same amount of rainbows in the sky as an adult as there was when I was a child?
Rainbows hadn’t changed. I changed. There weren’t less rainbows. I had just begun to trudge through my life with my head down, dealing with my daily duties, and worrying about this and that – I had stopped looking for rainbows. I had changed, and it wasn’t for the better.
From that afternoon on, I made a promise to myself to take the time necessary to see the rainbows – to remember that life is more than a daily struggle. Try it. I think you’ll be pleasantly surprised at the “rainbows” that become visible to your life.
