Thoughtful Thursday

“Turn your face to the sun,
       and your shadows will fall behind you.”


This proverb greets me each time I open my annual summer vacation journal. Its words came to me yesterday, as they often do, when the sun’s rays broke through a dreary day for just a moment. Long enough to warm my face and my spirit—physically for just an instant, but the effect lasts much longer.

The phrase reminds me to always seek the positive in any circumstance.

When I am frustrated, I am reminded of my strength.
When I am sad, I am reminded that I feel, and am passionate.
When I am angry, I am reminded I have high expectations, and accept no compromise.

Let the sunshine warm your spirit today, despite any weather forecast.
