“Be who you are and say what your feel, because those who mind don’t matter, and those who matter don’t mind.” -Dr. Seuss


“Sometimes we have to weather the storm to see a brighter tomorrow.
Sometimes the rain fails to wash away our mistakes, our regrets, & our pain.
Sometimes, all we need is not to run inside from the rainstorm, but to dance, kiss & walk through the rain.
Sometimes, the rain will make things far more beautiful than before. After all, it takes a little rain to see a rainbow.

Not every rainstorm has to be a hurricane, & the rain won’t fall forever. There’s always a brighter tomorrow waiting for the storm to pass. You just have to learn to take what you’re given & make the best of it. [name_f]Remember[/name_f], even paradise sees its share of storms, but in the end, it’s still paradise. So if you let the rain ruin your day, you’ll be hard pressed to find happiness or paradise, even when the sun comes out.

When the sun shines & it’s a beautiful day, you’ll stay inside, because you’re afraid it might rain again. But the truth is, life is a series of bright days interrupted by a series of storms. But it’s those days between, where the sun shines warm on you that make it all worthwhile. It may rain, you may feel a storm on the horizon, but it shouldn’t stop you from enjoying the sunshine when you get it.”
