The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain. ~Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I’m taking a few days off to relax and rejuvenate. I’m on the East Coast of Florida… and it’s raining. When you take a trip to the beach you think of days and days of sunshine – bright – happy, fun, sun filled days. Then the unexpected rain storm comes, with a forecast of showers for the next five days. Panic or sadness may start to set in, because its not what you expected – life it like that, disappointed in not getting what you want. The reality is, that what you have instead, may be better, or at least, a different kind of good. For instance, on this rainy day at the beach; I didn’t have to worry about getting a sun burn. I walked endlessly without ever becoming over heated. And, the beach seemed to be my own private sanctuary, in an area of towering buildings.
On this walk, in the quiet of my own private beach 😉 I tilted my face to the sky, and drank in a deep breath of fresh saltwater air. I took a moment to feel the tiny drops of cool rain. I felt so alive, calm, peaceful, and yet invigorated by the moment. It was just the result I was hoping for, from my time on the beach.
“I am sure it is a great mistake always to know enough to go in when it rains. One may keep snug and dry by such knowledge, but one misses a world of loveliness.” ~Adeline Knapp
Every day has its beauty – find the loveliness of your world…
Just a thought…
