Australian author, Morris West once said, “If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.

I’ve met a lot of people who do that.

They anticipate bad things happening.

They can see the clouds from a long way off and immediately start to fret.

They don’t allow themselves to enjoy life because to them, it can all come crashing down in an instant and they don’t want to be let down.

Of course, pain and disappointment are inevitable.

Bad things happen to good people all the time.

But if that’s where your focus is, you’ll miss the good times.

The moments of joy.

The blessings.

The beams of light.

Don’t wait for the storm, enjoy the sunshine.
