Monday Musings: Rainy days in dela Rosa

I love to walk along the streets! It is my main mode of transportation going to and from the office. Aside from avoiding the heavy traffic in Makati, taking a brisk walk counts as an exercise. What I love about walking is that I get to observe nature and people. I would often look up and just be in awe of the clear blue sky, take a close look at the shrubs, and observe people.

But the idea of walking in the rain can be daunting especially when the rain is so hard. Nonetheless, I still choose to walk because being stuck in traffic is worse. Also, dela Rosa street is known to be flooded all the time. If I wait until the rain completely stops, I will have to soak my feet in the muddy water. Thankfully, I have never done it before. I would often pass by the walkway and wait for the rain to tone down a bit.

Rain can affect our mood. Sometimes I get frustrated when I think about the possibility of being wet while walking or stepping in a pool of water along the street. Over the years, I grew to love the rain. I love to hear the rain drops and I care less if I get wet. Thank God! We can take pleasure in the rain.

Sharing with you some “rainy day” photographs. I hope these serve as a reminder for us to be thankful for every moment.
