The day that we took these pictures was a gray and rainy day.
I kind of loved it.
I’ve talked before about my love of water, but I’m also one of the rare people that actually prefers rainy days to hot and sunny days (Maybe I’m a Vampire? No?).
There is something about a gray, rainy day that causes you to stop and reflect.
I often find that sunny days tend to distract me from my inner thoughts. I fill sunny days with activity after activity and become absorbed in what I’m doing.
Rainy days on the other hand force you inward. Sounds are muffled, lights are dimmed, activities tend to slow down. You are left with space to think and reflect and grow.
There are so many things in life that pull at us. Social media gives us an instant out anytime we want to run away from our feelings.
But on rainy days I find myself craving an escape from those distractions. I love to brew a cup of coffee and just sit with my thoughts.
I think people are often scared to do that… to sit with their thoughts. And I don’t blame them. Allowing your thoughts to naturally form without any distractions makes you aware of who you really are and I often don’t like who I am at that moment, but I find that in those moments of honesty I can face the things I don’t like and I can move away from them.
It’s so good to find that space for reflection. I crave it.
What about you? Do you enjoy rainy days as much as I do?
Until next time,
