“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.” Maya Angelou
We can all use a little sunshine in our lives. Yet clouds and rain and storms are all a part of everyone’s journey. Sadly, the storms of life are often brought on by the people with whom we interact.
Some people seem to bring the clouds with them everywhere they go. They criticize, are negative and they bring people down without any effort at all.
But there are countless people who seem to bring joy and sunshine wherever they go. They are unshakably optimistic, calm and kind in the midst of the storm, and they lift people up with their presence.
Some are the storm clouds and some are the rainbows. Decide which you want to be. I think Maya Angelou’s suggestion is a good one, “Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud.”
