Raindrops Keep Falling on my Head

Raindrops keep falling on my head.

This song popped into my head today. The dreary, wet, rainy, foggy days are beginning to become annoying! Did we move to Seattle?

How do people live there? I would be depressed. To be honest, this rainy weather is taking the motivation right out of me! I want to be in my pj’s, sipping coffee and crocheting while watching catching up on TV shows from the DVR. But, I can’t do that for days on end! I did just that this morning and realized breakfast isn’t going to cook itself. I also had a few grocery items to purchase and didn’t want to look like I was shopping at Walmart!

On the bright side (pun intended), it is nice to enjoy a cozy day inside (just one day is enough) with fall scents in the air, enjoying fall decorations and above all, spending the day with Jeff.

Life doesn’t go the way we want it to each day, not by far, but looking for the positive aspects, not the negative, will bring a smile to your face and sunshine to your heart and soul.

Outside chores went undone today. They will be there when the rain stops.

A friend of mine shared a bit of wisdom with me and I remind myself of this over and over. We live but once. So something didn’t get done today, such as mowing, laundry, housework, etc. Oh well. Those chores will wait. Go fishing, take a long walk, spend the day with a friend. Do what you want to do! Go live!

No, you can’t ignore responsibilities.

But, you can’t ignore yourself either.

Take a day and live! Smell the roses, dance in the rain, hug your children/grandchildren often, read a book, sleep in late, whatever your heart desires.

Don’t get so caught up in living that you forget to LIVE!

Let the raindrops fall. There is beauty in nature, even when we are tired of seeing it!

Have a wonderful, rainy evening. 

Take Care and have a great week!
