It’s been raining all day. Dark grey clouds have enveloped the sky and the shower lashed my balcony. Tiny potted plants gleamed with the droplets that suspended slowly from the edges of the green leaves and colorful flowers. I gazed outside for a long…long time, and observed the clouds and the rain and the birds that were hunting for a shelter to avoid getting wet.
Generally, I love when it rains, but today it was different. I could feel the gloom around, and I wanted to see a bright, hopeful…sunny morning. Very soon. I tried to soothe my pre-occupied mind. I tried hard to distract. But, in vain. The thoughts just refused to go…just like those clouds up there.
“When one door of happiness closes, another opens, but often we look so long at the closed door that we do not see the one that has been opened for us.” – Helen Keller
It’s unfair to let go off my share of happiness this way. On that note, let me brush aside the day that just passed and look forward to a new day. Much brighter and positive.
