“Sunshine is delicious, rain is refreshing, wind braces us up, snow is exhilarating; there is really no such thing as bad weather, only different kinds of good weather.” – John Ruskin
We are all blessed with the capacity to see things from different perspectives if we only allow ourselves to engage our natural talents. Though something may be perceived as negative, if we give it the right attention, we are always able to see the positive within. Though something may be ugly, if we give ourselves the right intention, we are able to see the beauty behind it. Our lives are not wholly created by the people, places, objects, and events of which they are comprised, but by our perceptions of them. Let us be conscious of the beauty in all things and perceive our lives as the gifts they were intended to be.
