Remember, you are not the rain, even when you get wet.

"Into each life some rain must fall."
- Henry Wadsworth Longfellow

Rain is part of life... A really good part, actually.

But when it pours and we're soaked and chilled to the bone; well, not so much.

Yet that's what happens when we're out in the rain, we get wet.

But you don't really think you ARE the rain, right? You know you're just wet.

So why do so many people go through life thinking they ARE their circumstance? Their situations? Their problems?

Granted we get caught out in it... But do we really need to get caught up IN it?

We have disagreements and disagreeable moments. Time's get tough. Struggles get old.

That's the rain.

You're not that.

You're separate from what you experience.

So don't think it's what you ARE...

Or you'll end up owning it.

So go dry off... and let some sunshine in.

That's the light to keep on!
