The worst storms are when we are raining self-doubt, insecurities, fears and worries about the future. When we are raining inside, quite possibly the storm of emotions has made us forget how strong and powerful we really are, while instead we feel stuck in a situation that feels insurmountable as it is soaking up our joy. Perhaps we’re really just getting wet from another’s bad mood. Maybe we’ve drifted into some future moment instead of staying present with whatever is happening this very moment. Possibly while dealing with something that is sad, the flood of emotions feels as if it may never pass. Such tempests could temporarily drown and drain the best of spirits if we chose to allow it. ☔️

Yet, nowhere on Earth does it rain forever. The sun comes out. Bob Marley said, “Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet.” So yes, some of us experience the force of emotions stronger than others. Yet, Eeyore reminds us that “The nicest thing about rain is that it always stops. Eventually.” And all the way back in 550 BC, in assessing the emotional swings of the human condition, Aesop wrote, “After the rain comes the fair weather.” ☀️

Whenever it rains, remember, we need that rain, just like the plants require rain to grow. All growth comes after the rain. So on that note, Eric Clapton reminded us…”Let it rain…Now I know the secret; there is nothing that I lack…Let it rain.” 🌱
