We are all progressing toward an older age. We start as babes, but then the birthdays come and go, school finishes for us, and we set out to live our professional life after college. Years pass, and though we planned to attend the annual meetings, we don’t go back to greet those who helped us through college. We marry, have babies, and settle into our professions.
Life isn’t so fast, but it does keep moving. When you were 21, you thought 90 was old. Now 110 is older, and old. There are things older people can’t do anymore, but activity is encouraged for all of us. If you sit, and don’t exercise, you will develop loose muscles, and soon your couch potato days will catch up with you. Really. It is hard to walk when it is raining, unless you love to walk in the rain. What is wrong with walking in the rain? Do it. Let your hair get wet, and be drenched in the rain for a little while. I believe it can be a capital moment in your day. You can always refresh, but walking in the rain can be delightful. Let that raindrop fall on the side of your faces. Let it run down your face. I believe rain has healing virtue in it. It came from above. Why wouldn’t it be special.
No, I am not normal. Rain has always been a delight to walk in when I have the time, and when I am in the mood to walk in it. That is rare now, because I am an adult. But a good pair of boots is wonderful to walk in the rain. Splash those puddles, and have some fun for a change. Find someone who wants to get muddy, and splash through the rain puddles.
A cat doesn’t like to get wet, but at times, I have seen a cat need a bath. We gave it to Him and He frankly didn’t mind. He became docile. I do believe we have many fears that if tried, won’t scare us any longer. Mud washes off, and so does make-up. Hair dries, and goes well with a hot iron to make it straight, or curly. I believe the mask comes off eventually, when we realize that we have one life to live. What is good for your mind? It is something that throws into the dull, and boredom, and says, “Wake up! Smell the roses. Splash in those puddles. They are there for the fun you can have. Stop being a sissy. Find a horse and ride it like the wind through those puddles in life.
