Sometimes It Rains – Rhoads Life Coaching

In our high-pressure, fast-paced, win or get-out-of-the-way culture, rarely do we ever make room for a non-binary response. Is there room in your life for a pause? Becomes sometimes it rains.

One of my favorite movies from the 80’s is Bull Durham with Kevin Costner and Tim Robbins. It’s cheesy; it’s fun; and the mentorship and initiation of the young pitcher Nuke Laloosh has always resonated with me. At the end of the movie Nuke extolls his maturity with the wisdom, “Sometimes you win. Sometimes you lose. And sometimes it rains.”

I was reminded of that line this week as we watched the rain wash out several days worth of plans and activities. We put so much pressure on ourselves to constantly produce that we sometimes we lose track of the benefits of having to stop and rest every once in a while.

It helps to have our planned daily tasks snatched from us every once in a while. It forces us to pause, reflect, and rest. So when you have a rain out or a snow day are you frustrated, or can you build a personal philosophy that it is ok to have your plans disrupted once in a while? If it causes a LOT of frustration for you when this happens, what is it about you that can’t let go? How can you build room in your being for an unscheduled pause? –
