Life Says....

Life says...
do not wait for the sun to shine;
but
learn to live without its' warmth.

do not wait for the storm to cease;
but
learn to race against its' tide.

do not wait for the rain to stop;
but
learn to walk while it pours.

do not wait for tomorrow to come;
but
learn to live like it never will.

do not run for the cheering crowd;
but
learn to run without a cheer.

Life says...
do not wait for what might come;
but
learn to work with what you find.
