Does everyone love the Chicago rain as much as me?
I hope you’re all safe as you read this. The rain, thunder and lightning that we enjoyed this afternoon came as a surprise to me.
I am one who does not read/view the forecast every day since I don’t have a TV and don’t spend my time watching the weather forecast. I prefer the idea of “going with the flow” because life is fun!
Rain is fun and if you get wet… ohh well.. It’s just water and it will dry again. The important thing to me is to remember how great this rain is for nature. Everything we see.. Obviously not manmade objects.. But nature is happy to get rain. The thunder and lightning simply revive the earth and refresh it.
I have gotten angry in the past because it would rain during the day and I was not prepared for it. What’s the point? It made the situation worse because none of us can stop the rain and by complaining we make ourselves miserable and other people too.
Now, I have decided to go with the flow, let it rain and see how I can make the situation better by finding out what I can do there and then. I believe in the greatness of humankind and I believe that there is creativity in all of us. Therefore we can use a moment like a torrential rain and figure out how to avoid it.
For example: I can walk into a shop and strike up a conversation about what I do and maybe how I can help that person with something. Life is full of surprises and networking is a must for all of us to grow, learn and mature in life.
That was my piece of advice for today. Enjoy the rain and remember: when you are handed lemons, make lemon juice (or something like that)
