Silver linings?

Sometimes having a 'soft' or 'moist' day (okay it's pouring down) is important. Just as some people might say every cloud has a silver lining, so we can recognise that at the very least a wet weather day may help us appreciate sunny days more. By being mindful we can learn to do much more. We can appreciate the life that rain supports, our own and others. We can recognise the depth, the variety of every day life. We can appreciate how fortunate we are that everyday is different, bringing new challenges, and opportunities. Sometimes even appreciating that nature is so much something we experience rather than control is important in realising that everything changes, life goes on, so engage fully, don't get stuck. Notice how you react rather than respond to each day, set yourself the challenge of finding something to appreciate in every experience, live fully!
