Liquid Sunshine or Rainy Day     

                                                                                                                         

Yes, it is raining in Baltimore. It has been raining all night and the forecast is for a good soaking the rest of the day.

I went to the gym this morning. As I entered, a "Good Morning" greeting to the woman ahead of me was answered with "You tell me what's 'good' about this morning." I watched the bright smile of the greeter turn downward. So I stayed and shared with this person how I felt about the rainy day.

"Liquid Sunshine" - this is what we have. You don't have to water the grass or the flowers today. You have an umbrella and you are dry. You are healthy and well enough to be at the gym. It is not snow; it is a comfortable 65 degrees. My car is getting clean without me lifting a finger. I can find so many benefits of rain.

I was saddened by that "older" woman's response. If she cannot find anything good on a raining day in September, what does she have to look forward to? How does she handle a disappointment or an illness? 

Attitude makes it Liquid Sunshine. There is no bad weather - there is just weather.

How do you see the day?

Perfect conclusion. There are many people who would love to be out in the rain, or out at all...but can't.

And, if there were no rain, there'd be no rainbows.  And we wouldn't appreciate the sunshine.

A positive attitude is so important in life and in our business. And coming from rainy country, every day's a rainy day here (good day!).

I see it as a start of a new season and new year. It's rainy and cold here in New York today. Summer is over.

Everyone in my office was dressed for business today. Summer casual was gone. I just read Eilen Landau's post about the new year starting the day after Labor Day. I agree

Today's weather made it very clear that it's back to business for me.

It's seeing the glass half-full as opposed to half-empty.  I surround myself with good, positive people and your "liquid sunshine" is perfect, do you mind if I borrow it?
