I feel it’s gonna rain like this for days goes the lyrics of that song by Creed. And every time it’s raining outside, I hear it in my head. Like yesterday, when it was raining, the wind was blowing, and I was waiting for a bus for what seemed like hours.
But the promise I made to myself was to look on the bright side. And well, you know, we can’t change the weather, but we can change the way we react to it. So, as much as we love the sun (well, at least most of us), and we hate when rain ruins our plans of a beautiful day on a bike (or a picnic, or a long walk, take your pick), what is the good thing about the rain?
Well, it may not wash everything away as in the song, but it does change the air. Trust me, with my breathing problems that I’ve had half my life, I know! And rain is water, and water is life – life for flowers, life for trees.
Best thing, though? It’s just such a perfect excuse to go under a blanket on a rainy day, with a good book, some candles and a glass of wine/cup of tea. When you don’t have to be waiting for a bus, that is. So, the next rainy day that may come your way, cuddle up, make a tea, and enjoy the change of air.
And remember the sun will come back again!
