This post is just an observation on what daily decisions can teach us if we pay attention. Yesterday at the end of work I was faced with running the 50 feet from my office door to my car during a terrible storm. The storm included torrential rain and hail.

First let me explain the close proximity from the door to my car. I am the first person to work in my entire building almost each morning. Yesterday was no exception so I got to cherry pick the best parking spot. Most days I choose that same spot close to the entrance but in the summer there is one lone shade tree in our parking lot that is about 100 yards from the door.  I choose to deflect some of that North Carolina summer heat in June-July-August. Yesterday my choice to arrive early provided me some shelter from the storm. I watched my colleagues turn into drowned rats who had to navigate a longer distance. Umbrellas did not provide them defense against the wind and rain combo. My choice to START my day early paid off in the end by keeping me a little drier.

Second as I drove east out of the storm the sun setting in the west began to form a wonderful rainbow. It made me think that sometimes in life we don’t realize that old adage;

“that no storm can outlast the sun”.

When we START a journey in the midst of a storm we need to remind ourselves if we persist we will eventually see a rainbow. Located below is the one I saw yesterday.
