As trees teach us resilience, rain gives us resilience flexibility and adaptability. We should learn to imitate rain and be like a drop of water that knows its shape will not always be the same.

Before becoming a collection of drops of water, the rain was perhaps sea water, then it turned into water vapor to become a cloud and finally here it is back in the sea, in a lake, in a river or on the ground with the first storm.

Some people don't like rainy days very much because they find them gray, sad and boring or complicated to deal with due to the moodiness and traffic jams they expect to find on the street due to traffic.

We can define rain as one teacher of change. It is not always easy to change oneself for the better and open up to the new, but we can always try.



Rain teaches us to let go of what we no longer need. The flowing water it is a symbol of liberation. We can stop and watch the rain and imagine that each drop carries with it a difficulty, a worry that we have dragged on for too long or a fear that is blocking us.

We can also imagine raindrops as a series of tears, as a symbol of the sadness that is keeping us company and that has something important to teach us before it goes away. When it rains, if we feel sad or melancholy, let's allow ourselves to cry and let ourselves go to express our emotions.

Let's not forget that rain does not only have apparently negative aspects. Indeed rain in the form of water drops nourishes the soil, plants and nature. Therefore it is also a symbol of fertility, growth and regeneration.

If we have no desire to leave the house during a rainy weekend we can still decide to spend some moments reading or meditating in our home so that the weekend is still profitable and not in some way ruined by the climate.



Finally, a rainy day doesn't necessarily have to be depressing. The rain indeed can teach us the value of optimism. Storms cannot last forever and this is a great metaphor for life. Only after the rain does the sun, when it comes, seem even brighter and can bring the rainbow with it to surprise us.
