So, we are driving to the Florida Panhandle Saturday for our family beach vacation and the weathermen on the radio start freaking out about “Tropical Storm Debby” (uh oh, my name is Debbie! Does this mean something?) coming in. Great-are we going to have to evacuate? Luckily not so far, but rained all day yesterday.
I’m an optimist so I just decided it was going to be fun and an adventure no matter what happened. It is just great to be on vacation, take a break and re-energize. Our friends are flying in today-can’t wait for them to get here.
So this morning it wasn’t raining so I decided to take off for a run. I thought it would be a good way to brainstorm for a blog plus I am one of THOSE PEOPLE who love to work out on vacation (you get to eat more that way!) Sidetrack, sorry I am ADD, yoga and running are 2 things you can do anywhere, did a yoga cd (p90x) yesterday since it was raining.
Well anyway, I take pictures all the time so on my run I decided to take a picture of a Starbucks with palm trees and another runner came up to me and said, “are you taking a picture of that bear?” BEAR???? WHAT BEAR???? I turned around and there was a huge black bear across the highway!!! I tried to get some pics, got one where you can “bearly” see him! So I made a new friend (the runner not the bear), as I usually do, and we pointed out the bear to other runners and then I told the people hanging out at the Starbucks (and made even more new friends).
Then, I got back to our beach house and there was a huge rainbow stretching across the ocean!
So, my point is, I don’t know what this week holds as far as the tropical storm, but if you are open to adventure, fun happens! So be open in your life and look for opportunities and silver linings among the clouds……
