The spring brings rain with it. Rain effects us in many different ways. It can inspire us to go out and take photos of its beauty in nature. It can also change our state and damper our mood. Rain may unmotivate us, and make us less interested in doing things. But, we know no matter how rain may make us feel, it is inevitable that it will come one day. Rain is also very symbolic: It is a symbol of cleansing, and renewing. It is a symbol of our tears. During the spring it is a great source of life–it brings forth new life in the earth. It is also a time of washing away the grays of winter and bringing forth new bursts of color.
I would like to challenge you to bring forth new bursts of color in YOUR life…let the rain bring forth new life, new beginnings in you by washing away YOUR burdens, and sorrows, and filling those spaces with new dreams, hopes, and aspirations!
Once you make the effort to be renewed, let the rain heal you and inspire you through ACTION
- Jump in puddles like you did when you were a child
- Stand in your shower, and imagine that it is the rain, washing upon you, and removing all that you need to let go of-Allow healing to happen within you!
- Stand under the rain, until your hair is wet and raindrops fall off your nose into your hands making a puddle-and say to yourself, “I am alive and refreshed!”
- Go outside with the one you love and dance!
- Make your dreams a reality:
- Write down your goals and hopes in a list
- Pick one a day that you are going to work at
- Remember a goal is attainable!—which means you will make it happen!
May the Road Rise to Meet You,

I live in Seattle, where the rain, especially the past two weeks, has been relentless, and it’s very cold. I have to say that I get very negative about it on an almost daily basis. In response to that, I’m going to move away from here at the end of April. But in the meantime, thanks for giving a positive spin to rain and helping me remember how much I liked rain when I was younger and living in Texas, when it was much more rare, and usually warm!
I remember a June here in the Northeast like that–the rain never stopped. It can really damper your spirit. I know that is one reason I also shared my post, to remind even myself, of renewal. Blessings on your move. And may there be more sunshine where ever you may go! Blessings, Erin, Bella Bleue
