I am always looking for rainbows, literally and metaphorically, only that I am starting to think that I could learn more from my journey if, from time to time, I were brave enough to stay in the rain longer.~Luigina Sgarro

Ever notice how beautiful contrast can be?

Like a rainbow after a storm, we can find gifts everywhere when we’re looking for them. I wasn’t looking for gifts this morning. I was determined to wallow in sadness and abject misery. I said I was allowing myself to feel my feelings. Admittedly, I wanted to justify another person’s wrongness. I had to chill out to John Lennon for a few hours before I noticed. Now I can let go of righteousness and accept what’s happening.

I’m grieving the loss of my dream. I wanted it to play out differently than it did. I wanted a mutual connection. I was sure everything would work out between us. I guess I was wrong.

Why has everything been rearranged? I had grand plans with someone, and he disappeared.
