Motivational Quote - If you want the rainbow, you gotta put up with the rain.

SparkPeople's Comments

There are few things more beautiful or childishly exciting than finding a rainbow after a thunderstorm. Maybe it was a nasty storm, but the wonder of a rainbow might make it seem worth it. The parallel here seems almost obvious. Sometimes in life, we have to go through certain trials in order to reach the desired ending. Is the ending worth the troubles that bring it about? You have to decide that for yourself. Being positive can certainly make it seem that way. Sometimes, reaching goals demands a lot of hard work along the way in order for them to happen. Are you willing to put up with the rain?

I was thinking of the contrasts last night. I had a headache and it made me take time t say thank you for all the times I feel clear-headed. Then I wondered if I was ungrateful for my great health unless I felt bad. That seems kind of warped. Do we have to have rain to appreciate sunshine? Perhaps... But I think I will take a little more time to be grateful to what we think are little things until we don't have them.

I am thankful I can type, have full range of motion in my hands and don't have to hunt and peck :-)

To put up with the rain helps us grow and mature, knowing there will be difficulties in life as well as the joys and happiness.

love Dolly, she is such an amazing woman. I grew up on her music, and I love to watch her in interviews. She is just so honest and down to earth.
