Insight into a thoughtful quote!

by Simon Hopes Author

Today I came across a quote that read, ‘Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass but learning to dance in the rain’. While I was still reading the same line a tenth time I began seeing it in a different perspective. These are some of my insights I thought I would share that might motivate few out there.

There is calm before the storm is another famous saying that tells that if the entire situation is very subtle and neat then there is going to be a storm in the near future. Let us see this in different genres.

·         For a married friend of mine, taking care of her husband and his family is a storm and before this storm, there was a long calm: that is the time when she was with her parents and they took care of her.

·         For an unemployed friend of mine, getting a new job is a storm and before this there was a calm that is the time when he had no idea of getting married.

·         For another unmarried friend of mine, finding the right guy is a storm and before this, there was a calm, that’s the period when she was only a daughter.

In all the above scenarios, the storms are different in their life. But if they all wait for this storm to pass away, then that will be too late in time and when turned back there will be a major missing in that storm period. So, what does dancing mean? It’s definitely not the literal dancing moves, but dance is the best way to de-stress and that is the kind of dance the quote says. The storm shall pass away after getting a job, accepting in-laws, finding a guy etc. but it is in the way you deal with the storm by ignoring the storm and just relax in other things around! Many times we forget how much we longed for rain and now we hesitate to dance in the rain!
