If you want to enjoy the sunshine, all you have to do is to appreciate everything that comes your way.
According to Morris West, “If you spend your whole life waiting for the storm, you’ll never enjoy the sunshine.” If you want to enjoy the sunshine, your life, you must stop “waiting for the storm.” There is no perfect time for anything.
If you want to change your life, if you want to do something special for yourself, for your future, you must not wait for the storm.
Life is a movement. Do not wait for the perfect time to move your life forward.
