I went away with mixed feelings. I felt like she was trying to get a dig in there, trying to tell me that I was out of touch and privileged. For one, my life definitely hasn't always been wonderful. I've had my own private struggles and hardships. But then I started thinking about rainbows and unicorns and I came up with some realizations.
If, like me, you've heard the old bible story about Noah's Ark, you also know that rainbows are a symbol of judgement held back, and a promise of hope for the future, particularly after a difficult time.
During my most painful circumstances, I saw three rainbows in the space of a week. It could have been a coincidence, but I took it as a sign.
So why spend time looking for the rare and beautiful in this often brutal world? Why keep room for hope and healing when everything looks dark? Because, my friends, as Brian Tracy said, "You cannot control what happens to you, but you can control your attitude toward what happens to you, and in that, you will be mastering change rather than allowing it to master you."
My friends, I'm going to keep holding out for hope and healing, and I invite you to join me. I'm going to keep looking for rainbows and unicorns.
