This picture goes back a few months to a rainy, windy day in well, the Windy City, when we stepped outside of a hot, crowded Navy Pier to get some fresh air. Within seconds the damp air sweeping over Lake Michigan made it ashore and took our breath away. But before we retreated indoors, Girl from the East couldn’t resist hopping and skipping through a few puddles. The wind whipped her hair. The puddles splashed water onto her stockings and she exploded into a fit of giggles.

This image captures her happy spirit, her ability to seize the day.

I’m posting it as a motivator to turn around my mood, which is more like the oppressive mass of water vapor overhead.

On my darkest days, I always challenge myself to find the bright spot. Every day has one. On this day, that picture is my bright spot.
