It's Always Sunny...

Writer Nicole Richards Sharpe aka "Ambrosia"

Do you realize that every day is a Sunny Day?  The Sun is always out.  It doesn’t go anywhere. Yes, scientists theorize that the Sun is in a binary orbit with a lesser star but the Earth travels in time as it revolves around it, so the Sun really is constant.  It doesn’t set or rise. The Earth spins on its orbit and we perceive the Sun setting and rising. At night, the sun is still there, lending its light to the moon.  On a cloudy day, the sun is still there.  It’s our perception of clouds that get in the way of us seeing the sun but the sun is still there.  I might sound like a vinyl record stuck on a vintage record player’s pin but do you get my point?  Our perception of the absence of the sun gets in the way of us seeing the sun that is ever present.  Just because we don’t see something with our natural eyes, doesn’t mean it doesn’t exist.       
We can adopt this outlook when it comes to the daily pressures of life too.  It might seem dreary and cloudy at times but try not to perceive it as eternally gray.  Know that the Sun is there; ready to shine its rays upon you if you only see beyond the present.  Unlike the song from Annie, the sun is always out, yesterday, today and tomorrow. 
So the next time you look through the window or at your life and see a bunch of menacing cumulonimbus clouds coming your way, know that the Sun is in fact there.  You just have to change your perception.

Our souls are like the sun; always there, with our hearts, minds; love and life orbiting!
