You’ve probably read the title of this blog post and thought I’m mad, haven’t we had more than enough rain!
Well hopefully as you read on I’ll clarify what I mean!
Look around you at the trees, flowers, plants – what do they need to flourish? Sunshine and rain.
Look at yourself, and the person you were in the past – maybe 10, 20, 30 years ago – Are you the same person today as you were then?
Speaking for myself, I can say with certainty that I am definitely a different person today than I was 10, 20 or 30 years ago. It’s not just because I’m obviously older now that I’m different, my outlook on life, on others and my relationships with others is different, and that’s because of the ‘rain‘ I’ve experienced in my life over the years.
The ‘rain’ we experience in our lives can be difficult to cope with at the time, but they are the times which build our character and give us real life experience, and therefore make us the person we are today.
So embrace the rain!
