01 Nov Don’t Let The Rain Stop You
I recently enjoyed one of the most relaxed Friday’s I’ve had in a while. After leading a 5 am prayer call, I decided to take a break from my usual Friday exercise routine. Actually, I went to my yoga and kickboxing classes the prior evening so I decided to go walking in my favorite park with our dog, Leo. Upon leaving home, the rain clouds started to form in the sky. My first response was to turn around and go back home, but I heard the Spirit say, “Don’t let the rain stop you.”
When we arrived, I grabbed my umbrella and started walking. As we walked, of course it started to rain. While walking I saw others running and walking in the rain and I began to fully take in the scenery of my favorite park.
The morning’s rain was a cleansing, refreshing rain and I truly enjoyed it. After my walk in the rain, I enjoyed a facial at my favorite spa and later enjoying my time at my favorite Friday appointment, you guessed it, the hair salon.
Sitting in the hair salon, I could see the rain clouds rolling away and the sun burst through into a beautiful bright day! The moral of this story is, “Don’t let the rain stop you:”
- Keep your plans even if you have to make an adjustment.
- Keep an umbrella somewhere close; expect some rain every now and then.
- Keep a positive mental attitude and become fully present in the moment.
- Keep a good walking companion, one that can handle a little rain (like Leo).
The rain does not last forever, so enjoy your day even if you have to endure a little rain….
