Have You Ever Seen The Rain


Isn’t it ironic how we feel is sometimes the opposite of what we are truly living in?

Have you ever felt sad while wearing a smile?

Did you ever feel alone in a room full of people?

Have you ever felt angry when everyone is happy?

Have you ever seen the rain?  In other words, have you ever been sad?  Of course, we are all human, so you are not alone.

But have you ever seen the rain, coming down on a sunny day?  In other words, have you ever had something tough or unfortunate happen during the good times?  I know I have.

Is it possible to be sad and happy at the same time?

Yes, it is…

Grief is a perfect example of being happy one minute then bursting into tears the next.  Our stories are different, but our emotions are the same.  We are more similar than we are different but eventually, we get through it all.

Have you ever felt the calm before the storm?

I have, and I’m pretty sure you have too…

You know that gut feeling where something bad is going to happen, you just don’t know what or when.

One thing for sure is that life is full of ups and downs and during the tough times, yes we are going to see the rain coming down.  However, it is possible to be happy during these hardships.  We have to remember that tough times don’t last forever and things will work out the way they should.  The sun always comes out in the end and if you’re lucky, you’ll even see a rainbow.  Isn’t a rainbow a sign of good luck?  You see, things are getting better already!

That’s why it’s important to have your friends and family close by, to help, guide, and support you because they love you and want what’s truly best for you.

I think this song Have You Ever Seen The Rain, by CCR is an example of how life can be so ironic sometimes.  Whenever I’m feeling down, this classic song always picks me up and makes me smile.  I hope you are smiling now too 🙂 Happy December everyone, hope it’s been good to you so far!

Much Love ❤

  1. The art of living is not being afraid of standing in the rain. And get soaking wet. Feel everything at once. After such intense moments of sadness or grief you appreciate the sun coming out to warm you. Count your blessings. See the things that are there. Notice the little things that make you smile. Never keep yourself from feeling just because it makes someone uncomfortable. Never let anyone tell you to ‘suck it up’ because ‘it happened so long ago.’ Those are not your people. You might end up spending a lot of time on your own, but it’s worth it. ‘Grief is love that has no where to go.’ Live it. Breath through it. You got this. The sun will come out again.

  2. Interesting and inspiring post, Jennifer! I feel having your well-wishers by your side is a blessing. The tag of friend and family have become irrelevant. Is your second book published?
