I woke up to the sound of rain hitting my bedroom window this morning, and it put the biggest smile on my face.

For the first time in a long time I actually woke up happy. Yes, from something as simple as rain!

Many people find winter and rain depressing or gloomy were as I find it beautiful and calming. I love the sound of rain on windows and pavements. I love the feeling of raindrops on my clothes, face and hair.

Something about rain always gives me hope for a better day. Rain just makes me think of freedom.

I always have to be outdoors when it rains. Either sitting on the front porch or literally standing under the rain.

I feel refreashed, cleansed, when I’m getting soaked by the rain drops. I feel at peace with myself.

The feeling after the rain has stopped is also so beautiful to me. There’s a cold breeze and I dry myself up, and wrap myself with something warm.

I enjoy taking a drive and just looking at the wet streets. The smell of the plants after they have been soaked is refreshing, and everything just looks clean.
