“Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.”
(From Segovia Bader’s Travelogue)
Greetings Friends and Magi,
I love Wisdom Stories. I love sharing these stories with friends, sitting around the fireplace on the chilly winter nights. Yes, it even gets chilly in Las Vegas.
Here is one of my new favorite stories and wisdom quotes for the holidays.
A WISDOM STORY… THE 3 HAIRS
There once was a woman who woke up one morning, looked in the mirror, and noticed she had only three hairs on her head. “Well,” she said, “I think I’ll braid my hair today.” So she did and she had a wonderful day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and saw that she had only two hairs on her head. “H-M-M,” she said, “I think I’ll part my hair down the middle today.” So she did and she had a grand day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that she had only one hair on her head. “Well,” she said, “Today I’m going to wear my hair in a pony tail.” So she did, and she had a fun, fun day.
The next day she woke up, looked in the mirror and noticed that there wasn’t a single hair on her head. “YAY!” she exclaimed. “I don’t have to fix my hair today!”
Attitude is everything. Be kinder than necessary, for everyone you meet is fighting some kind of battle. Live simply, Love generously, Care deeply, Speak kindly.
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass… It’s about learning to dance in the rain.
I love that quote about “dancing in the rain.” It encourages me to create, and share inspiration with my friends. Just a few days ago, I emailed this story to Bob Neale. Bob wrote back to me the next day with ideas for 3 magic routines utilizing this story as the inspiration. Isn’t it amazing how one simple story can trigger so much creativity? Bob has a talent for taking simple stories like these and developing them into full story-magic routines. His book Life Death and Other Card Tricks is filled with examples.
