Rain.

I love the sound of the rain as it just starts to fall. There is an odd calm then as the first few drops fall there is the soothing rhythm that surrounds you. Rain always makes everything feels fresh, new and clean. Perhaps as it rains tonight I will feel refreshed and ready to conquer whatever comes my way.

Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.

Weather.

I am not a fan of storms. As a child I was fearless, so I am not really sure when the dislike started. The chances of actually getting hit by lightning or having a tree fall on you is pretty slim, but it doesn’t stop me from wishing the lightning would go away. My fear must be a creation of my own making, kind of going along the theme of the more you know the more you know you do not know.

Even as an adult I have used the “if I am under the covers nothing can hurt me” method of tricking myself into feeling safe. There is something truly magical about laying in your bed warm and cozy, it is a safe place to face your fears. At the moment I have so many fears I am not sure where to start. I have found a good nights sleep helps me put my best foot forward when staying in bed is not an option.

At some point I will stop dreading the small things that come my way. Someday the fear will start to dissipate. I am not sure I will ever run into a storm, but at least I know I can weather anything that comes my way.

Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.

I have always loved the rain, a steady shower on a warm day makes everything feel fresh and new. It settles the dust and everything smells so good. Many days in past weeks I have wished for the comfort of a spring shower. Instead I was given snow, lots of snow.

Something about a world of white makes me feel like everything is starting fresh. I have felt alone in my new beginning as I watch everyone around me continues on in their lives. As I look out my window I can see a whole world that is starting over again, and it gives me comfort.

I still can’t wait for the first rain, but for now I will accept the snow.

Tomorrow will be a little bit easier and I will become a stronger me everyday.
