I'm going to say an unpopular opinion: I love rainy days!
People look at the rain and automatically sigh in disgust while I instead, sigh in relief.
Rain is calming on my most stressful days. It gives me a desire to curl up with a cup of hot chocolate or tea, wrap myself in a blanket, and just relax with a book in my hand.
I know what you're thinking: "What if I don't have time to sit there and I have to be in the rain? That just sounds like a lazy day!"
Well what if I told you, I find it the opposite of lazy. In fact, I find that the most productive time! I get in the car and I'm relaxed. When I get to work I feel refreshed. Looking out the window does not bring me sadness but a calm serenity.
Rain stinks when we want to go outside for sure, but there are a lot of good things about the rain too! It nourishes the land and in turn it nourishes my mental state.
I love to breathe in the air and just feel my shoulders shrug lower and lower. I love listening to the cars drive past-- tires creating a consistent soft splash. I love hearing the drops of the rain on any and all windows.
Maybe this will help you change your perspective when you see your next rainy day. It is only a gray sad day if you see it that way. Try looking at life through this lens, and those rainy days just might end up cheering you up. If they do not cheer you up, well then it will have to at least put your mind at ease in this crazy world of ours.
