Good-bye rain!

Hello Sunshine!

Hello Palm Trees!

First of many sunrise walks.

Heaven on earth!


It doesn’t get much better than this!

Time is passing slowly, a day begins to feel like a week

Mayan adventures – felt like Indiana Jones!

Okay, I have to admit the weather has been crappy. Yes it is a fact and we all know it.

But what happens when we state that fact over and over all day long?

We make it bigger and bigger and bigger. We feel it more and more and more. Is this what we really want? To feel the pain even more than we already do and to spread that around to everyone around us? I think not.

So please, let’s stop complaining about the weather and look at the bright side.

Think of it as the city taking a shower, think of it as being fresh and clean. In fact, have you ever been to a place where it rarely rains? It’s pretty dirty.

Look around! Green everywhere! Fresh air! We are very lucky.

Do we not live in the most beautiful place on earth?! I have traveled, a lot, I can without a doubt tell you we do.

It’s raining, what a great opportunity to:

  • Go for a workout.
  • Go to a movie.
  • Clean out the closet, garage, storage room, desk, fridge… guilt-free, your not missing anything outside.
  • Go to the mall.
  • Get into your rain gear and boots and go for a walk on the beach, in the woods, on the seawall, it’s so refreshing and beautiful!
  • Go to:
    • The Vancouver Art Gallery
    • The Planetarium
    • The Aquarium
    • The Anthropology Museum
    • A musical
    • A play
    • Theatresports
  • Cozy up at home with some popcorn and watch your favorite show or movie.
  • Read.
  • Throw a party, a dinner, a brunch, a breakfast, spend time with people you like to spend time with!
  • Go bowling!
  • Catch up on your office work.
  • Clean your place.
  • Do laundry.
  • Go out for dinner, lunch, breakfast.
  • Have a project you’ve been wanting to do? Do it now! Knit a sweater, paint a picture, build something…
  • Call someone you want to talk to (not complain to!)
  • Think of all the time you are saving not having to water the garden! 😉

Do all the indoor stuff you can so when the sun comes out you can get outside and enjoy it.

Let’s stop complaining about ANYTHING and start looking at the bright side of life. What you focus on will become BIGGER.

Please share any other ideas in the comment section below (no complaints!).
