Not every day is going to be bright. Sometimes the sun’s rays won’t seep through the break in clouds. The greens of the grass won’t illuminate under a crystal blue sky and the petals on the flowers will not shimmer in the sun. It might seem as if the clouds will never again clear away, they will grow thinner at times to a light gray and other times they are as black as night. It is as if you are surrounded in a fog, shrouded in a gray cloak and you can’t seem to shake the veil from your eyes.
On these days, appreciate the gray. The way you breathe in the colorless air around you, take it into your body and release any color you were holding onto. Your eyes won’t strain at the light. Instead, they will be free to roam, to seek, to eventually need this time of colorless wonder. Envelope yourself in the blacks, the whites, and the grays. You know the sun will shine again in all its splendor. Grasp the gray sky with your hands, hold it close and let it remain within you.
