Rainy Days Make Me Contemplate Life

Rainy Days Make Me Contemplate Life


Rainy Days Make Me Contemplate Life…

It is interesting that rainy days force me into deep introspection.  Maybe it is the changing of seasons from winter to spring?  I’m not sure, but today it is rainy and I can’t get my brain to shut down.

I have a lot of change going on right now.  I am about to begin a new MS medication.  I have an upcoming procedure for an on-going medical issue.  My role in my job is changing.  I am in month 3 of therapy which brings its own challenges.  And the combination of all these things happening at the same time has my head spinning.

Rain feels refreshing.  It washes away the dirt and the pollen and brings about growth and life.  Rain represents new beginnings and a chance for a fresh start.

Sometimes I would like the option to hit pause.  I’d like to be able to stop life from happening so quickly and take a moment to breathe; collect my thoughts before other events cause new thoughts and worries.  But, alas, it isn’t an option.  Regardless of how overwhelming things can seem, this rock keeps on spinning and I have to find a way to work through problems while maintaining my composure.

Maybe I could clone myself and use my clone like a stuntman in a movie?!  Every time I need a break I just call in the clone to take my place for a day while I relax on the couch?

Now that is a solution I could get behind.

    ” I’d like to be able to stop life from happening so quickly and take a moment to breathe”….

    First and foremost, I’ll keep you in my prayers as you experience life on an entirely new platform. Your post is a great reminder that while seasons of change are definitely challenging, there are others that have a little MORE life happening TO THEM which means gratitude at my current level is appropriate….No doubt we will BOTH come out of it successfully with the right mindset. I believe the perfect trifecta of determination, optimism, and realism equals success. My life is also in a place where it’s happening extremely quickly and I’d like to breathe, which I will be able to do starting May. I can see the light at the end of the tunnel!

  2. The Masters golf. I don’t play golf and don’t understand the finer points but I always watch the Masters. Today I had tea and put my feet up on the couch to watch. The beautiful course with the azaleas and rhododendrons blooming and to see these top athletes playing is a treat. I have not sat down with a cup of tea and put my feet up for months but the Masters encourages me to do that. I just need to find a pause button that comes around more often than once a year! lol

  3. You must be a very strong person. I can tell by reading your blog. I think that’s a great idea, having a clone. A good day for me is not waking up in a hospital with dr’s. around my bed discussing the next treatment. I’ve been through that a couple of times and I swore I would never complain or whine about my life as long as that was not how my day started. Happy Sunday and Blessings for you this week. You’ll be in my thoughts and prayers 😉
