When It Rains, It Pours

So the saying goes, “When it rains, it pours.” We hear this daily with people describing rough days, economy issues, workload, etc.
The saying seems to have always come with a negative image attached. Rain is cold, wet (obviously), does not often allow for sunny skies (unless you’re in Nashville), and creates mud, mud puddles, flooding (ask Nashville about that too), etc.
Many of us; however, have also come to find the saying rather positive too. It can be used to describe good things happening all at once; being showered with good news or having good luck. When thought of that way, we may also think about rain creating rainbows, allowing plants to grow, giving us a water supply, etc.
This may all sound silly, but it really gets you thinking that there are two sides to everything. There’s a positive and a negative side to everything.

What side are you on?
