Unicorns & Rainbows || feat. The Soul Project

 Life is not all sunshine & rainbows . . . well in this case . . . unicorns & rainbows, and that’s the hard truth. If anything life is rainstorms & rhinos running straight towards you at full speed, and no, you are not quick or agile enough to get out of it’s way. You’re stuck in the rainstorm with no umbrella, and left for rhino kill . . . (is anyone laughing at this? I’m dying at the images playing in my head).

The most inconvenient things happen at the most inconvenient times, and you’re stuck with just figuring it out. About 2 weeks ago I was in a car accident. I did a complete 180 on the freeway, went up a hill, and landed in the air while my car landed sideways. To say I was terrified would be an understatement, and to say this was anything BUT convenient would be a lie.

Enter in my favorite word at the moment . . adulting. Garssh do I hate adulting. I was always the one growing up that never wanted to grow up. While girls were 15 going on 25, I chose to be 15 going on 5, cause who the heck wants to grow up!? Unfortunately here I am trying to stiff arm a rhino, and stay dry. Lemme tell you, it’s not working out in my favor.  Twenties to mid-twenties have been filled with a lot of rainstorms, but like they always say, you can’t have a rainbow without a little bit of rain. They just don’t warn you that it’s A LOT of rain. There’s some things I would want to change in my life right this instant. One that comes to mind is I would really love to not have a car payment (nope). I would love to know where my career is headed (nah). I would love to live on my own (ha!), and I would love to have someone love me through all of it (don’t get me started). Just a bunch of rain really.

But this all takes time. Time that I clearly don’t have the patience for. I’m ready for a chet ton of rainbows like yesterday, ja’feel? However, I’m also learning that you have to create your own rainbows (refer to the two photos above). To tell you the truth, I’ve got this unicorn thing down. Living life like a unicorn, I could write a book on this. Stay tuned.

SO! Here’s a few things to do when the rainstorm takes over, and you’re down on your knees begging for the rainbows. Numero uno, stop begging. They’re not going to stop. Get up off your knees, hold your horn (you’re a unicorn remember) up high, and just keep going. In times of trouble is where we find our strength, and our greatest faith. Be thankful for the troubles.

There will be rainstorms and rhinos, but ohhh there will be rainbows and unicorns as well. Life is a rollercoaster, and sometimes I just want to get off. But my life is a blessing, and I’m very much aware things could be much worse. I’ll take a car payment over not having a loving family, or not having friends that I simply could not live without ANY DAY! There’s a silver lining to it all. You just have to be willing to find it because when you do . . . it’s glorious.  become a unicorn + rainbow
