“To love oneself is the beginning of a lifelong romance.”
– Oscar Wilde
The forecast today calls for rain. I love rainy days. I don’t even mind riding my bike in the rain. I appreciate the cleansing aspect and that it gets the whole world a little quiet.
It’s only been in the past few years that I’ve acknowledged and embraced that I’m an introvert. I used to think that because I was comfortable being social, I had to be social. My sister said she’s heard it said that extroverts gain energy when they spend time around groups of people and introverts gain energy being by themselves.
Rainy days appeal to this introvert.
I can ride with my hood pulled over my face
and give a smile and wave as I ride down the street.
No time to chat gotta get inside,
I’m all wet!
Thanking the rain as I dry off.
