So is it better to tell and hurt or lie to save their face? Well, I guess the answer is don't do it in the first place. Thank you Missy Higgins for giving me an inspirational song to listen to today. Yesterday someone asked me a profound question: "Is lying okay if it makes the outcome better?"
I really don't know the answer. I didn't then, and I still don't after thinking about it all night, and I'm sure I will never know. What I do know is I don't like this outcome, so if you were trying to make things better you failed. Miserably.
Thunder. Yesterday I fell asleep to the sun shining bright in a sky with no clouds. An hour later, I was awakened by deep crackling thunder. Before I even opened my eyes, a smile came to my face. I finally went to the window and watched as the sky covered Waterton in the most beautiful of rainstorms. Surprising how things such as thunder can always bring a smile to my face. Of course, this is the first rain storm of the summer. Of course, I thought of the song Thunder by Boys like Girls. Of course, I was taken back to the summer rainstorms I have faced over the past few years. Of course, this rainstorm was inevitable. Of course, I am going to smile despite of the storms.. because I always do. The storm always ends you know, and the sun comes back.. which leads me to another beautiful quote:
"Life is not about waiting for the storm to pass, it's about learning to dance in the rain."
You know what? I love dancing in the rain.
