Often in life, we need to be reminded that things aren’t as bad as they seem. We forget to soak up the moments that are given to us, and to never take anything–like the feeling of rain against our skin–for granted.
When this little girl asked to run through the rain, everyone thought it was just the silliness of a little girl. But what she said at 1:47 reminded them all that true wisdom is so often found coming from the mouths of kids. The director of this short film, entitled “Light Rain” wrote, “This film was based on a true story (written by Bob Perks) and the premise of it is very simple. We are reminded of the need to avoid becoming weighed down by the trivial hindrances that soak our paths on a daily basis. There are always people in worse situations with real troubles and that should put our small daily problems in to perspective. Perhaps things aren’t as bad as they first seem.”
This inspired me to enjoy every moment… and leave my umbrella behind!
