Stop and experience the Rain

This video shares a child’s excitement and experiences in the rain. Smiling and amazed at each drop on her face. In this fast track society, and many pressing engagement adult forget the rain. The rain brings with it a refreshing, calming adventure that few adults experience in their life time. The question becomes have we discounted the small things that bring us joy? When is the last time you ran in the rain and laughed? Adults are concerned about getting a cold, hair wet and tracking water on their brand new rug if this is you raise your hand. Both my hands are up.

When I saw this video I felt like some adults have loss their passion for fun. Adults tend to worry, fret and complain. Where is the little child inside of us? This child trusting something she has never experienced not afraid but enjoying every moment. Sometimes we must create joyful experiences, that brings smiles to our faces and laughter in our hearts. Here is a quick exercise: think of the funniest episode in your life and remember how you laughed so hard and your stomach begin to hurt and tears came to your eyes how joyous when you laughed out loud (LOL). The question becomes when has the last time you rolled on the floor because something exciting caused you to laugh.

This is a sneak preview of laughing out loud with purpose to bring fire from your soul. Have a fun day in between your work day.

  1. This is such a serious post. Being adults we always feel we have to be ahead of the game and always get it done. There is so much beauty around us that we tend to not even notice. I am so grateful that I am able to experience the sunrise in the morning or how the clouds gently float in the sky. It’s those little moments that make your day seem priceless no matter what is going on. 🙂


  2. I could (and have) watched that video several times and it reminds me every time how much we’ve forgotten to simply experience life in a joyful manner. We need to take the time to enjoy the rain, or smell the flowers, or the coffee! She shows such bliss. I love her. 😉


  3. Hi Carolyn,

    We all need a little bit of children in us. I know that children are worry free, they love to dream. Definitely one thing that adults can learn from! Thanks for the great post!
