It rained today. Not for a long time, but hard, and fierce, and kind of out of nowhere. It’s gone for the most part, and with it, it took the sticky, humid, thought-interrupting heat. About time.
Sometimes the weather puts a really good metaphor into my life in ridiculously appropriate ways. I mean, maybe I’m just seeing metaphors where I want to see metaphors, but I like to think that the universe has some sort of cosmic, weather-related symbolism directly targeted on me.
This heat; this muggy, suppressing heat, was either affecting, or just really symbolic of my thoughts of late. I got all bogged up in my head, thinking about things too much, over thinking too much, which can end up being really hard to handle.
Sometimes, like with the rain today, all you need is a reset. Something to take all of your overbearing thoughts and replace them with something much cooler, much more calming, and much more welcome.
I hope the rain is a symbol of a reset for me as well, not just the weather.
