“Some people feel the rain. Others just get wet”. -Bob Marley
Have you ever just stood in the rain and really felt each drop as it lands on your skin? Of course, this is not always practical, but the idea is relevant in so many areas of our lives. Feeling is an essential aspect of life and even when it hurts we reap all kinds of benefits by simply tuning into our emotions.
Bob Marley is talking about making lemonade out of lemons or turning a negative to a positive. You see, you have the power to change your perspective. You can choose whether or not to embrace what life throws at you or not.
It is up to us to make the most of our lives. We only get one shot. We should be making memories out of inopportune circumstances. We should try to laugh at ourselves more and really feel the rain. Don’t just get wet.
