When it starts to rain you can head for cover; cower
You can run like a madman; create a spectacle
You can drop your shoulders ; let if beat you down
You can carry on; as you were.
Accepting that - yes - it is rain, and you're going to get wet.
You can accept that these things happen, and rather than run away; blindly - jacket over you head, you can walk on serenely, as if the water isnt even there at all.
Maybe it's only there because we react to it.
If you accept this, and ignore the rain, you start noticing other things.
Like how people go to extraordinary lengths to stay dry, and how silly they look; clustered like sheep, peering out into the darkness like one touch of water will ruin them.
You leave them behind, as you march on unihibited.
You get where you're going - you're never as wet as you feared.
Home and dry, you find yourself strangely refreshed.
Life is about experiences; both good and bad.
Sometimes even bad experiences can be enlightening.
If you view them the right way.
