The song was originally re- leased by Johnny Nash in 1972. Currently this cassingle is climb- ing the charts off the soundtrack from the film "Cool Runnings." The song delivers an optimistic beat and mes- sage. Most of us have had times when the dark clouds of discouragement overcast our lives. How- ever, when the rain of disappointment leaves, we often discover that "straight ahead there's nothing but blue skies." Sometimes though, it seems to "rain" for days or even weeks. When this occurs, discouragement often brings out its close ally fear. Together, these feelings try to tell us that we will never see the blue skies we want in life. If this happens, don't try to weather your emo- tional state alone. Fear likes nothing better than for us to isolate ourselves. Then, its negative in- fluence can overpower our ability to assess a situ- ation objectively. So give up any false pretense of a brave front, and talk with your friends about what you are feeling. It takes courage to share your heart, and doing so is often the first step in moving past your sense of loss or disappointment. Next, turn to the twin mental gifts imagination.
