Rainbow Cloud *Card Purse

“Try to be a rainbow in someone’s cloud” – Maya Angelou

So I’ve come to an end of a stressful situation. It’s not often I make a stand for myself, but when I do, I find it incredibly hard and believe me – it has to be a particularly hard push to get me to that point of just saying ‘enough’. Its so much easier to let things go by to “save the peace”.  On review, lessons learnt are that if the things you’ve tried to change are not working out or won’t change and when things are not right, its ‘ok’ to just let go and move on in the best way you can.

Amidst it all, I came across the above quote. It was beautiful. I wanted to be that rainbow in someone’s cloud.  I want to be remembered for the positive things I’ve done. I want to be recognised for my achievements. I had tried hard and really thought I was that rainbow. Doubt crept in.  

Out of the blue it hit me. Like a ton of bricks… I am! I am a rainbow in many other clouds. 

I’ve come to realise that actually, I am a big ‘ol shinning glittery and sparkly full HD rainbow deluxe! Especially to the relationships that matter most to me. And it feels great!

This purse design is dedicated to all my friends and family who have helped me through this time by reminding me that even faded rainbows in dark clouds can brighten up with a little sunlight and for some magical reason, shine best in clouds you love.

Be a rainbow in someone’s cloud. Always.

    That’s so lovely, the purse and the post. I too, would rather let things go than make a fuss or speak up. Sometimes I do think I’m just a big walkover. But I do always try to find the positive in everything and like to look on the bright side of life. I find it frustrating when I can’t offer a positive outcome to a situation. xx

    Another lovely little purse Nina! That is such a beautiful quote! In the big picture most conflicts are really not important at all. You put it so perfectly “I want to be remembered for the positive things I’ve done.” This is a philosophy that everyone should live by! 🙂
