From a symbol for social change, a bridge connecting heaven and earth, to the U.S. Army 45th Infantry Division patch and the spot where you will find a leprechaun’s gold, the rainbow has been used to symbolize joy and goodness in mankind. National Find a Rainbow Day is April 3, and to celebrate, Rainbow International has ways to find the silver lining in any situation.
Make obstacles a challenge
If obstacles damper and cloud your day, turn them into challenges. Once you accept the obstacles as a challenge you can make gray clouds go away and find your rainbow. Completing the obstacles will allow you develop new qualities and improve your character.
Make a list
When faced with a difficult situation, create in your head or on paper a list of things you are thankful for. By doing this you will see all the positives you have going for you and it will bring your rainbow to light. By having a list of positives your spirit will be lifted and give you positive energy.
Understand your limits
By acknowledging what you can control and letting go of what you cannot, the stuff you cannot fix will start to become less of a priority, allowing you to focus on what you can control and fix. Bring out your rainbow by handling what you can and letting go of what you can’t.
Have a glass is half-full attitude. You will always be able to find your rainbow if you have a consistently positive attitude. By being positive you can bring those around you up and positive as well.
Consider it could be worse
Similar to being optimistic, thinking it could be worse allows you to see that your situation isn’t as bad as you might think. There is always something that could make your situation even more stressful than it already is. By remembering that it could be worse the silver lining, and rainbow, will start you show.
Rainbow International will be celebrating National Find a Rainbow Day and by using these tips you can find your own rainbow, and possibly pot of gold, at the end of the day, no matter how stressful or tough.
