“The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain.” – Henry Longfellow
Indeed it is best to let nature take it’s course, to let life flow as it wants, and to let people be as they are. This weekend was a nice and peaceful as my weekends usually are, however this time it was with reason, but rather, due to a lack of reason. A while ago I read that instead of apologizing for your mistakes, you should thank people for their understanding. It is human nature to apologize for one’s own error, however this leaves a natural acceptance that the behavior is okay, and almost expected if someone were to continuously accept your apologies. So, I had decided to begin with thanking individuals for their patience in me so that they knew I would improve. With many things in my life I decided to make this apart of my personal philosophy by not just using this logic with man, but with life in general. The phrase “when life gives you lemons, make lemonade” comes close, but I am not a lemonade person.
There are many things that you can control, and there are an infinite amount of things that you cannot, the best thing to do with the latter is to accept it and move on. Brains or hearts (based on your view of the human emotional anatomy) tend to linger on stressful issues and problems far longer than they should. I learned at a very young age to live with my consequences and not to be hung up on the past due to a momentary lapse of judgement. Mistakes happen, not just on your part, but to every single living and non-living organism on Earth. Once you accept your mistakes, and accept that other people also have hiccups you can do your best to understand both sides of the argument, and move on. That is why today’s quote is “The best thing one can do when it’s raining is to let it rain”.

Rainy days tend to be my favorite days.
