I like this topic because even though I tend to miss the sunshine when it’s gone, I love rain and stormy weather. A lot. I don’t know if anyone else has this viewpoint, but I view rainshowers and t-storms as an emotional and natural cleanse. So for this, I’m usually on my porch with a book or a sketchpad during the time they’re happening, theoretically “soaking” it all in. I feel it’s nature’s way of washing off itself and starting fresh!
I also really love with Katerina said; how rainy days are just days that validate we’re also allowed to feel crummy. I’d never even considered that until now.
TurningPointCT.org was developed by young people in Connecticut who are in recovery from mental health and substance use issues.
