Let it Rain
“For after all, the best thing one can do when it is raining is let it rain.”
― Henry Wadsworth Longfellow
I had discovered some time ago that two of the most powerful words you can ever say is, “oh well.” It is amazing what is accomplished when we just allow the rain to rain. And how often do we forget what comes after the rain?
It has been rather difficult for me to maintain an attitude of contentment. Always do I want to be older, smarter, more achieved, already somewhere I want to be. I live so much in the future I am always forgetting the present. I struggle with the acceptance of how young I still am, how little I know, how inexperienced I am. I forget to remember that I’m perfectly alright, and everything will, in time, be perfectly alright.
So, what shall I do with myself? I suppose I’ll let it rain, for that’s the best thing one can do when it’s raining.
