Sebastiano Serafini [Never ask for a lighter rain. Instead pray for a better umbrella]

Heavy rain showers remind me of challenges in life. Never ask for a lighter rain. Instead pray for a better umbrella.

When it rains, it pours, and sometimes life is full of thunderstorms and high winds. It is in these high stress situations that we are truly tested on our character. Think about it, if you never had enormous tests placed before you, how would you ever gauge how good you are already, and how far you need to go or grow to make it to your dreams. Take every facet of life for what it truly is at its core.

It is easy to be upset by the difficulty that lifes storms place in our lives, but in actuality lifes storms are something that we should appreciate. Be grateful for the fact that your life isnt mundane and without challenge. Be grateful that you are still alive, still kicking, and still able to fight another day, because not everyone was even fortunate enough to wake up and continue to pray for a better umbrella.

  1. Ciao, Sebastiano!
    Una conclusione un po’ triste, ma del resto hai scritto più volte che in Giappone pioveva in questi giorni, e la pioggia rende tutti più malinconici e riflessivi.
    Quando non puoi uscire e vivere la tua vita resti a rimurginarci sopra guardando il mondo dal vetro di una finestra… una sorta di lente d’ingrandimento, con cui puoi vedere dettagli che prima di allora ti erano sfuggiti ed un riepilogo di quanto hai fatto.
    Le tempeste non durano per sempre… come i momenti difficili, servono per farci fare il punto delle cose, a metterle in ordine a darci il tempo di decidere su cosa vogliamo puntare quando il sole tornerà e noi ricominceremo il nostro cammino…
    Sono d’accordo con te, quella della tempesta è un’allegoria perfetta per descrivere le battaglie della vita!
    Un abbraccio, Sebastiano! Ed uno anche a Maramaura, per favore!!!
    Ben tornato in Italia! ❤

  2. For a moment my life is storm, I’m fighting for a better umbrella. But where is this umbrella? I am looking for… again and again.
    It’s hard but in the same time I learned to sing and dance on the rain 🙂
    If you want we can positive in negative things and become more strong.
    Life is not always easy, but we must appreciate being alive at every moment. Life is beautiful and precious.
