Rainy Day Blues

It has certainly been a week filled with sad and depressing news, coupled with an amazing amount of rain in many places.

Not surprising, it becomes very easy during these times to feel melancholy. Blue. Even depressed. We all have them. Those sad days. Today is not one of my sad days, I’m having a very good day today, but I was reminded as I watched the news of the day and the weather channel that “rainy day blues” can happen at any time, to any of us. So I thought I’d post a few words on this subject!

“Some people feel the rain, others just get wet!”Β Bob Dylan

They can be “okay” days if we are reflective during these times. Be “in the moment”. Experience the melancholy. Understand that those feelings shall pass, they are helping you emotionally vent that which you have been unable to adequately express or release in any other way.

And should you encounter other melancholy souls, perhaps a little bit of cheering and companionship may be just the thing to help them move beyond the sadness of their day.

On life’s lonely days recognize them for what they are – a brief passage of time where your loving heart is being made aware of it’s sadnesses and understands the importance of that recognition so that you can love more fiercely and with greater conviction.

And although you may feel lonely, know you are never alone. You are one of many and are loved!

With warmth and affection,

~ Penny

  1. A lovely post Penny. We are experiencing a rainy day here and I am enjoying it as it is a nice break from the heat. Rainy days are wonderful for reading, writing, and meditating, reflecting on life’s beauty and little challenges. Hope you have a lovely weekend!

    • Hi LuAnn, thank you. I agree with you, completely. I actually love rainy days, but then I also like stormy weather, so go figure LOL. My weekend has started off most excellently and with sincere wishes that yours has as well, so dear and special friend of mine! πŸ™‚

    • Hi Lauren. Thank you. I’m right there with you, my friend, totally! Dancing in the rain! I hope your weekend has started off in a positive light and continues to be so! πŸ™‚ xo

  2. A fantastic post as always Penny. It will always rain, but you have a choice – get wet or learn to dance in the rain.

    Never forget that YOU are always looked with love & affection, and that you are never alone Penny. You have a great deal of very good friends.

    I don’t know if it is Norah Jones I don’t normally like – the one who sang Nine Million Bicycles, but I like this one. It is a relaxing song.

    Have a good rest of the week Penny.

Thank you for your thoughts!
