Rainy Day Reflections

“I like rain, actually.” ~ Bill Rodgers 

Earlier this week we experienced a rare rainy day here in the OC. I used to intensely dislike rainy days. Or at least that’s what I thought.

This week I realized I don’t really dislike rainy days. Here’s what I dislike…

  • Getting up too early to go out in the rain and drive an hour or more on a commute that normally takes about twenty minutes.
  • Sloshing through the parking lot in “professional” clothes not designed to be worn in the rain and ending up feeling soggy, grumpy and generally out of sorts all day
  • Doing it all over again in reverse to get home after a long day at work.

On this rainy day, I commuted a few steps from my bedroom to my kitchen for a cup of tea, and then I commuted a few more steps to my office where I could work productively instead of sitting on the freeway in gridlocked frustration. I dressed comfortably and appropriately for what my day had in store. And I happily watched and listened to the rain falling outside my window while staying warm, cozy, and dry.

As I sipped my morning tea, I couldn’t help but smile and feel grateful as I reflected on the events that led me from my old life to this one. I smiled because I found myself ENJOYING this rainy day. Who knew?

What I do know is that there’s a lot to be said for designing and building a Sexy Second Act career that dramatically and deliciously improves your quality of life – because doing anything else is a waste of your precious and valuable time.
