Waiting for Rain

Best Blogger Tips
Did you know that I hate rain? Whenever the sky darkens and droplets of water fall from the sky, my spirit gets gloomy. Rain means getting my feet wet from the flood and puddles. Rain means me getting my clothes and other things wet. Rain means me getting sick from the cold.

I think of negative things when it rains. Yet there is a person who inspires me greatly and has taken on the name Rain. The more I get to know him, the more I admire him. His fans from all over the world can surely relate to what I feel. He makes me happy. He compels me to think positive despite the hardships of life.

When he smiles, I see myself smiling too. He will always be one of the people who influenced me in a big way. Rain inspires me to move on with my dream and to love my work. He is God's blessing to me!

What about rainfall? Even if I associate it with cold suffering, Rain however, chose to be remembered as such: 

'But, the only thing I can do for you is to work hard to achieve my goal. That is, even some 30 or 40 years later when you become a mother or a grand mother of a family, I want you to remember me when you see rain falling from the sky.  I want to be remembered as, ‘a young man who once had a passion (for his work) that made me happy.’

Now, rain has an entirely new meaning to me. Whenever the sky darkens and starts to drizzle, I see myself smiling at the thought of Rain. Sure, I still get my feet and things wet. There is still the probability of myself getting sick because of the cold. But now, I trek them with a smile on my face. And that makes all the difference.

 I am here, waiting for Rain.
I am waiting for July to come quickly!
