My friend Dana (who's an amazing artist, by the way) once told me that it's only on a grey day that we notice the full vibrance of the greenery around us. I think of that idea a lot when I'm driving around on rainy or cloudy days, and it's amazing how I suddenly start seeing the lush leaves, grass, and bushes all around me--color and beauty that would've likely gone unnoticed if it hadn't been for a sweet friend pointing it out to me. I thought of that idea on this day, when Flannery and I were walking to our little neighborhood park between rain showers. Isn't our street so lovely on such a grey day?
It's amazing how a little reframing made a rainy & even gloomy day into a fresh and gorgeous one.
What "grey" thought have you reframed that boosted your happiness?
