“The rain washes away the pain,
it washes away the guilt.
It paves the way for something new,
It sets the table for fresh beginnings,
For all of its darkness it renews.”
Here in Melbourne the weather has been up and down lately. It’s hot for a week or so, then a cool change blows through and the strong winds come, in some places causing havoc and chaos. Then the rains come, like today. It feels a bit like my life at the moment.
I sometimes feel on top of the world, with the sun shining and I am full of hope and optimism and then the clouds come over and it feels like the sun has been obscured for good. I have good days where I feel anything is possible and then I wake to bad days, where I feel so full of despair and helplessness.
Sometimes it’s hard to stay positive and the clouds linger, but I try. Every day. What good is it to wallow in the rain. Ultimately it doesn’t get me anywhere. I know that eventually the clouds will pass, that the rain will have done it’s job in renewing my small part of the world and the sun will shine again. And then the journey continues.
May you have sunshine today in your part of the world and, if the clouds pass over, may they just be the silver lining and a beacon for hope in the future.
I wish you a positive state of mind, love and happiness.
