Dance in the Rain
We can't escape it; adulthood requires balancing the responsibilities of family/relationships, career/job, and our own physical and emotional well-being. Prioritizing and sharing our time and effort between working, family, or leisure is necessary—but it's a juggling act. Anticipating which role should be the center of our attention is sometimes as accurate as attempting to predict a storm's timing, course, and outcome.
And storms are inevitable. One day life is a series of calming waves, slowly rolling in with their enticing splish-splash and picturesque cresting white caps, then receding and repeating the flow over and over again. Then without warning, things will change— tides rage, and waves crash ashore with reckless abandon creating chaos. So, in a world where nothing is guaranteed, change has its agenda, and storms come at the most inopportune time, we must learn how to dance in the rain.
