Rainy Day Reflections...

Today I had one of those mornings where I got to where I needed to be and thought to myself, I really should have just stayed in bed. True, I often feel like just snoozing that alarm, and waiting until at least the sun comes up to get out of bed, but despite the urge, I get up to start the day each morning. But today, I just felt like maybe I should have put my routine in reverse, and really not gotten up, thinking to myself, what’s just one day? I forgot rain boots and it was pouring. I had no umbrella and got soaked, and I slept for only five hours and was exhausted. I was starving, wet and totally exhausted.

But then I realized, how am I supposed to accomplish anything great, fabulous and wonderful by staying in bed? How am I supposed to get where I want to be inlife by sleeping in and letting the day pass me by? A great entrepreneur and hero of innovation, who I’ve always greatly admired, died yesterday. And he most definitely didn’t accomplish what he did in his lifetime by staying in bed.

And suddenly I woke up! After reluctantly sitting in my chair in class and feeling sluggish, suddenly my day turned around. I had a warm place to be, and I also had one of the best gifts in the world, the gift of knowledge, and the opportunity to learn and grow from that knowledge.

As soon as I started learning, I woke up. My mind awoke and my body suddenly felt like there was a purpose to getting out of bed on this rainy, gray day. I’ve given myself the gift of knowledge and learning. Learning doesn’t necessarily need to be done entirely from a classroom, whether it be from school or an outside lesson, each day there is so much to be taught and stimulate the mind with, it’s really quite exciting.

I don’t think the greatest thinkers, inventors and world-changers let a rainy day hold them back, so today, and everyday, I’ll brave it too.
