Beauty in the Rain

Can you find the beauty in the rain?

The rain redirects us.  We choose a new path to take when we cannot see a future, when we are clouded by the woes and are drowning in a vision that consumes.  We stumble, we get back up.  We lose our way, then we begin again.  We seek escape.  We struggle to find hope.  We lose the fight…but then, someone reaches out a hand to hold, on that broken road.  You see the future getting closer on that broken road.  It is then that you realize, you’re never alone.


 

Everyone reaches a point in their lives when they must stop what they are doing and start again.  It’s how we grow, change, and live in this world.  We think we know what we want, what we can live with, and what we can tolerate.  We think we know what is best for us.  How many times has life proven that belief wrong? How many times have you been on the path to success, path to true love, path to freedom, and you realize that it’s not meant for you?  Are you brave enough to say goodbye to what is no more?

Beauty is created by the urge to rise against defeat.

Beauty is created by the urge to rise against defeat.

I promise you, out of every great goodbye, out of every departure from a soul deteriorating experience, encounter, and debilitating crash comes a beauty that can only emerge from the most disastrous storms.

Until it is realized that the road to happiness can only manifest itself from soiled ground, one cannot blossom into the individual they are destined to be.  One cannot sprout from the tiniest seed until it

discovers that it takes trust, faith, and hope to break through to find the light.

I believe that one cannot experience or appreciate the epitome of happiness until the epitome of tragedy, pain, and suffering reveals itself.  Suffering teaches us what we want, helps us realize what we most certainly don’t want, and builds a drive inside that cannot be replicated by desire alone.  Suffering creates need. A destiny.

I believe in destiny, and I believe suffering ultimately leads to our motivation to seek, to find, to appreciate the happiness that does exist in this life.  It allows us to empathize and grow as human beings.

I believe there is beauty in the rain, for it allows us to find and hold onto the true love that emerges in response to finally going after what you want.  Question is, do you?

It's your life.

It’s your life.


 

This ocean is too big for me to handle, so I must back away
For I have only begun to make a lifetime of mistakes.
So I must back away.
I know I will begin again
for it seems I have said goodbye to you,
good bye to you.
You will forever be my long lost friend.

We part,
yet I don’t forget your soul.
It takes me over
and I always carry you, you are apart of me
and you remind me that I was in way too deep
and I’ll forever be reminded by your lingering torment;
But you taught me how to keep my faith, in me.

Yet I say, no more, to the control you have over me.
I say no more cause I see this life was meant for me to be free.

You don’t know where you want to go, so back away from that ocean.
You approach the big time deal, but you forgot it in the motion.
While you keep on chasing the moon, I could have told ya,
that looking up, not looking around, is how you’ll miss it all.

If you keep chasing after what you think you want
you’ll lose all that you have.
And if you keep fighting for what you want to find
it will seem like time passed you by, yet you won’t move at all.
If you keep chasing after rainbows
you’ll miss the beauty of the rain.

Don't Miss the Beauty of the Rain.

Don’t Miss the Beauty of the Rain.

We think we’ll find the moments
in every step in life,
in every time we gain
what we sought to find.
What happened to the life
that all we cared to find
was the beauty found in someone else’s eyes?

What happened to simplicity?
It was taken over by fame
and lost in the glamour
in the new that you find to be the same.
The kind of excitement that fades, new is only that,
what happened to learning to appreciate, what sustains…

If you keep chasing after what you think you want
you’ll lose all that you have.
And if you keep fighting for what you want to find
it will seem like time passed by, yet you didn’t move at all.
If you keep chasing after rainbows
you’ll miss the beauty of the rain.

Sometimes, it's best to see your life from a different view.

Sometimes, it’s best to see your life from a different view.

When you stand at the tip
you can see the world before you.
You notice from a different view
it’s all smaller than you thought.
There is a bigger picture
and what you really ought to know
is that this feeling that you’re feeling now, you had it, all along.

It’s the excitement that your feeling now, it’s empowered through the beauty of your soul.

Identity Magazine is all about empowering women to get all A’s in the game of life – Accept. Appreciate. Achieve.™ Every contributor and expert answer the Identity 5 questions in keeping with our theme. Their answers can be random and in the moment or they can be aligned with the above article. As a team, we hope to inspire and motivate ourselves and inspire you to get all A’s.

 1.  What have you accepted within your life, physically and/or mentally? What are you still working on accepting?

I work every day to remind myself that it is okay to not have everything that I want right now.  It takes time to attain exactly what you want; in fact, sometimes you don’t know what you want until you find it, or until the time allows you to discover it.  I am a go-getter, and sometimes with constantly going after what I want makes me lack patience.  I work on being more patient every day. 

 2.  What have you learned to appreciate about yourself and/or within your life, physically and mentally? What are you still working on to appreciate?

I have learned to appreciate my strong, fun loving, and loud personality.  I have also learned to appreciate that I cannot meet everyone’s demands in life.  I have learned that it’s okay to say no, because it is my life and my happiness. I have learned to appreciate my giving and caring personality, but I also appreciate myself, and I make sure I have time to myself each day to reflect on my life and what I love.  I make time for myself to rest!

 3.  What is one of your most rewarding achievements in life? What makes YOU most proud? What goals and dreams do you still have?

I NEVER fail to follow my dreams! Even working in a job that was in another state, where at times I felt lost and alone, I was able to organize a charity event to provide me the energy and positivity to bring a new light into my life.  You must create your own luck! And now, I am advancing my career.  Life is good. 🙂

 4.  We all have imperfections, so we think. The truth—we are all perfectly imperfect. What are your not-so-perfect ways? What imperfections and quirks create who you are—your Identity?

I am very emotional and passionate, and sometimes, that fire inside me can cloud the truths and vision that I logically know to be reality.  I work on channeling that passion into positivity each day.  It is challenging at times, and sometimes I fail, but I always remind myself: I am human! It’s okay to feel.

 5.  “I Love My…” is an outlet for you to express and appreciate all the positive traits that make you…well… YOU! Sharing what you love about yourself will make you smile, feel empowered, and uplift your spirit and soul. (we assure you!) Identity challenges you to complete the phrase “I Love My…?”

Drive, creativity, and ambition.  Creating something out of a terrible situation is what I do best.  Inspiration can be found, even in the worst of rainstorms. 😉
