Children seem to have so much fun playing in the rain. Why, when an adult is running through puddles and laughing, do other adults look shocked and/or displeased?
This is something that has always amazed me and it recently happened to me. We were out and it started to rain while we were in a store. Yes, I could have maybe waited under an overhang to see if the rain let up or stopped but what's the fun in that. What is a little bit of rain when it's hot out. So, instead of waiting like others were doing we decided to run to the car. Running through the parking lot and splashing through puddles made me start laughing as it brought back wonderful memories. Of course everyone that saw us running either looked displeased or shocked, but it was fun.
Being able to find joys in the simple things in life can add so much joy to your life. So, maybe, the next time it rains and it's warm out, run through some puddles for fun. Watch the other peoples reactions and know at least you are having some simple fun.
