“The best thing one can do when it is raining is to let it rain.” ~ Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
What did Henry mean by this? In my humble opinion it means sometimes, just let life be life. We strive for complete and total control over every aspect of our lives that we forget that live is an amazing journey. It is filled with colors, feelings, thoughts… a multitude of impacts on all of our senses that we end up no longer living our own lives, just existing in them.
Sometimes in life, rather than try to control everything, the very best thing to do, is absolutely, unequivocally, nothing at all. Just live.. enjoy… experience…. and see what the next day, the next hour or even the next minute will bring. Be thankful that life still holds those magical surprises for you. That is the magic in letting it rain, think of the world after a rain storm and how magical it is. Clean, fresh, beautiful. That is why we should just let it rain.
Love and blessings,
