It is rain that grows flowers, not thunder

There was a grand thunderstorm today. I didn’t know it was coming. I seem to not be aware of those anymore. I just leave the house with no regard to weather. I suppose it makes each day, each hour, a possible surprise. Today’s thunderstorm was dark but not dreary. I wanted to go jump in a puddle or two. But I only had high heels on. Thus, I had to be cautious. Yet, I still felt great energy and was enthralled. The thunder added to the mystery and mirth, in an odd manner.

Yet, I was reminded that as we try to keep growing and learning, we can’t rely on thunder. Often, we gravitate towards the thunder in our lives. But that can be dangerous and isn’t a healthy sustainable route to self-empowerment. Rain. Rain, on the other hand, can nurture. Sure, it can be annoying, slick, and slippery. You can slide and fall. But you can also be watered and grow more quickly.

What’s the rain in your life? What’s the thunder? Find your rain and go jump in the puddle.
