Hello, again, Monday. It’s been raining for two days here in NYC. It’s a soft, gentle, misty rain. The kind that lingers in the air and causes my hair to grow to about four times its size. You know.
But in the clouds and the rain, we can find some sunshine! Rain can bring growth or rebirth. It can wash away grime and dirt. It can cleanse. It can bring love! No joke. One of my favorite memories with my husband was when we were first dating and got caught in a giant downpour with no umbrella. We raced through the rain with each other, high on the possibility of love, and warm with the thought of spending time together. It was magical. In fact, our first dance at our wedding was “Because of Rain” by Ella Fitzgerald, a truly dreamy song with such special lyrics:
Enough of my gushy talk ::blushing::Here’s your does of Motivation Monday (because this rainy week, you’ll need it!). Enjoy!
Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass, it’s about learning to dance in the rain ::source::

Wherever you go, no matter the weather, always bring your own sunshine ::source::
Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet. ::source::
Don’t let the sunshine spoil your rain ::source::
During rainy days or hard times, what do you do to see the sunny side of things?
