Dance In The Rain!

Day 32 of the ‘Post A Day 2011′ challenge: Are you an optimist, a pessimist, or something else?

Guess my life’s motto says it all:

Dance in the rain!

Art by Marie-Gold

An optimist is the human personification of spring.  ~Susan J. Bissonette

A pessimist sees the difficulty in every opportunity; an optimist sees the opportunity in every difficulty.  ~Winston S. Churchill

A pessimist sees only the dark side of the clouds, and mopes; a philosopher sees both sides, and shrugs; an optimist doesn’t see the clouds at all – he’s walking on them.  ~Leonard Louis Levinson

If an optimist had his left arm chewed off by an alligator, he might say, in a pleasant and hopeful voice, “Well, this isn’t too bad.  I don’t have my left arm anymore, but at least nobody will ever ask me whether I am right-handed or left-handed,” but most of us would say something more along the lines of “Aaaaah! My arm! My arm!”  ~Lemony Snicket

  1. Love the picture–and the Lemony Snicket quote. lol!

    Rain these days is cold and sleety, but I do love to dance in warm rain, when the drops are big and soft and full of happy-juice. 🙂


    1. With you always Jules! Put on your rubber boots and let’s go splashing and sploinking 😀

      You don’t know what sploinking is? Just jump in a puddle and you’ll find out 😉

      Love you too! And thanks for playing with me hehehe.



    1. Yes, isn’t it beautiful? It expresses exactly how I feel. At times I even take away the umbrella to feel the little water drops on my face.

      But sometimes the rain will try to drag me away, and then I hold on to the ones I love 🙂

      How about you Genn, are you an optimist or a pessimist, or someone in between?


  2. Mmmm, I’m an optimist with pessimistic moves. Sometimes I’m an pessimist with optimistic moves. BUT, I love to dance in the rain!!! (and love the song too 😀 )

    You are early Marion!!

    Have a very nice day!
