Looking For Blue Skies?

Part of looking for blue skies is learning to see the unseen benefit of rain clouds that darken your day.

Blue Skies
Most people are more than happy to tell you about all the things that are going wrong or that will go wrong in their life. There is a big difference between realism and pessimism. The realist understands that not everything will always work out for the best, but sometimes things do work out. The pessimist, on the other hand, assumes that everything will always work out for the worst. The realist will approach a problem with the expectation that there is a viable solution out there somewhere. Pessimists know beyond any doubt that nothing they do will make any difference.


When you are a pessimist, life seems impossible. Nothing you do can improve the situation. Pessimism will get you nowhere. Want to find blue skies? Find the realistic outlook, be a realistic optimist. Realism or optimism is not going to be enough to get you though, stay the course. Part of looking for blue skies is learning to see the unseen benefit of rain clouds that darken your day. While it may seem difficult in the moment, step back and take a deep breath. Problems are not always the end of the world. Nevertheless, the unseen benefit may not be entirely obvious until you work through the issue. There will always be problems and issues in life, that’s life. Sometimes it is just a matter of changing your perspective.


Blue Skies by Ella Fitzgerald


Blue skies
Smiling at me
Nothing but blue skies
Do I see

Bluebirds
Singing a song
Nothing but bluebirds
All day long

Never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on

(Scat)

I never saw the sun shining so bright
Never saw things going so right
Noticing the days hurrying by
When you're in love, my how they fly

Blue days
All of them gone
Nothing but blue skies
From now on
