The rain is pounding down on my roof and I’m laying in bed thinking about running laps on the track in the rain. I can vividly imagine myself running on the track in the rain. It almost feels real but when I open my eyes I am still inside. I love the sound of rain–it is soothing and peaceful. Right now I feel like it is washing the day away. The rain is bringing a new, clean beginning. Tomorrow is a different day with a whole new set of possibilities. If I close my eyes I can see myself doing anything I want. I can see myself in the future. I can see myself achieving my goals. The rain is washing away all of my past mistakes and failures. All I have to do is close my eyes and picture tomorrow. Let the rain fall down and bring us new hope, faith, and optimism.
