Stick around

There is a tree to the left of my balcony that blocks the sunrise at horizon level. So I miss the beautiful colors that occur before the sun actually comes up. This morning I decided to drive to the top of the street my friend lives on (much higher ground) to see if I could get a better view. I did except it was very cloudy and there was even lightning off to the west. I took a shot anyway. It was about 5:40. At 6:00, as you can see on the second picture, there was little improvement. I was thinking of just heading back home and trying on a day that was clearer. But I was doing some journaling during the wait and decided to finish my thoughts and then go.
Well, about 6:30, I looked up because I was ready to head out and I saw a gorgeous blue sky with only a few white puffy clouds and the white rays of the sun shooting up and out! I was so glad I ended up sticking around or I would have missed it! As I was driving away, it dawned (no pun intended) on me that this was a valuable lesson for life in general, too. 'When life is looking particularly gloomy and there doesn't appear to be much movement in a more desirable direction...don't give up on the possibility...stick around and you may be surprised at an outcome even better than you had hoped for.' Enjoy your is bursting with possibility!
