It’s raining today.
Thank the heavens for the rain. I know that a lot of us may not like it but there are so many benefits that the rain brings and that is what I am grateful for today. It cooled the ground that has been scorchingly dry. Also, did you know that rain brings negative ions? They are tasteless, odorless and invisible molecules that we inhale when we are in the environments that contain moving water. Once the negative ions reach our bloodstream, they are believed to produce biochemical reactions that help to relieve stress, alleviate depression and even boost our energy.
This reminds me that sometimes blessings come in disguise. Like when I arrived here in Japan, my previous employer was considered a “Black company ” where you are considered a property of the company and you ought to work unpaid overtime since it’s you have sold your soul to them already when you signed the contract which tells you nothing about the “real” job you will be doing.
Back then, I considered coming here as a complete mistake , I lost almost everything until… I took the leaf of faith, believing that there’s something good out of those situations and yes, like the rain that is pouring today, there are so many great things just around me.
Now I consider my decision of coming here as one of the greatest.
I wonder when was the last time you took a careful look at your situation and try to see the good things out of the bad and the great out of mediocre. Probably, all these good and great things are just lying around the corner and waiting for you to take your eyes off from the negativities surrounding you. And like me, it could finally be your life-altering decision.
