The summer in Jersey so far has been a bit disappointing, to say the least.
We had some days of warmth and sunshine, but the past few weeks have, to be honest, been very 'un-summerlike'.
For someone who loves long weeks of beach, and swimming, and warm nights and enjoying the feel of the sun on her skin, this summer hasn't really come good.
Not yet, anyway.
Glass half full - it's still only early July and we could still enjoy weeks and months of lovely weather well into the autumn, if we're fortunate.
We can hope, anyway.
When I saw this quote on a big wooden canvas in a local charity shop recently (yes, I did take a picture of it - it was too large to bring home) it reminded me, however, that if I wait for the 'perfect conditions' in life, I risk missing out on so much!
If I wait for the sunshine to come out, so to speak, I might not experience wonderful things while the rain is falling.
And, of course, I'm not just talking about the weather.
So - metaphorically and literally speaking - maybe I need to start dancing in the rain!
