The Rain…

In so many ways…. In so many ways it seems as though nature always has something impactful to teach me…

And it always comes when I need it the most…

I’ve been working in NYC this week… With plans to return to LA on Sunday… And then I discover that we will be here 14 more days… Which is fine… But I still struggle with control…

And… As much as I hate to admit it… The unexpected still tends to be… Well… Unexpected…

And a lot of the time I don’t like it… Because I’m still working towards allowing the unexpected to be a part of the way life is… The pattern it seems to follow…

And then comes nature… And the rain… Because for the past 4 days… Well I’ve been preparing for the rain… For a big storm…

And guess what?… This tropical storm… The one that worked its way up the east coast… Well it did what most tropical storms do… It turned…

Now… Now all of the rain I’ve been expecting… The precipitation I’ve been preparing everyone for… Well it’s not coming… Because the unexpected happened…

And I don’t mind the absense of rain… Because honestly rain means I can’t go on my daily 5 mile run… And that’s something I thoroughly enjoy about my day…

But the change in the forecast has taught me something… That… Once again… In life and in nature… Well I can think in my mind that I know what’s going to happen… I can lie to myself and trick myself into believing “this is the outcome”… But in the end… Well as things play out they tend to shift… Shift and change accordingly…

And that’s when I have to remind myself that my lack of the ability to control a situation… A possible weather pattern… Well that doesn’t mean life is going to suck… And it doesn’t mean that I won’t enjoy the actual outcome… Because in reality… The outcome of what wasn’t predicted will probably be so much better than what I envisioned…

And so… In moments like this… It’s best to just live… To just live and move foward…
