The rain is our best friend and our cursed enemy. As soon as it arrives we start panicking, will it ever stop, will it flood, is it cold, dark, dreary. Only if you let it.
According to mythology, rain washes away the past and nourishes future growth. The air is cleaner, the streets, your car. Our reservoirs fill up with water we will drink.
Let the rain cleanse your spirit, even if that means putting away your umbrella and walking in the rain. Clean off all of the failures that have already happened in the start to the year. Re-commit to what you want and need in your life. Be willing to try something new. Start with you.
