Grab your umbrella – it’s raining

Rain is an interesting metaphor.

Henry Wadsworth Longfellow used the metaphor to communicate the more challenging times presented during a life time in his poem entitled The Rainy Day: “…Into each life some rain must fall, Some days must be dark and dreary.”

Sales people use the metaphor to equate working diligently with highly effective sales.

Gene Kelly used the metaphor to dance, splash and sing about love and hope.

When the rain falls, as it inevitably will, recognize there are multitudes of ways for your perfectly, perfect self to process the metaphor. Sometimes that processing will require you to hunker down and wait out the storm or you may choose to splash through the puddles.

However you choose to process, my wish for you is to always shelter your big dream with an umbrella of love and hope.
