Does anyone else love rain the way I do? Although I appreciate sunny days in their own right, as well, a heavy rain allows me to feel acceptable when curling up with a good book and “wasting” the day, when I’m putting off things I “should” be doing and concentrating on self-care. It also puts me in a self-reflective, calm mood and gives me permission to sit with my feelings and just “be”. Sunny days tend to do the opposite — invigorate and motivate me to “seize the day” and accomplish things. Both are much appreciated for the benefits they bring and both very much necessary, similar to the respective benefits they offer the earth, plants, and animals, as well. Yin and yang.
