dancing in the rain

I feel like all I have been talking about lately is the weather here in Seoul but it is utterly consuming! It has been raining non-stop with no end in sight. Been trying to keep busy for my last few weeks here regardless but it is hard to keep a positive attitude with the grayness outside. Looking forward to my travels more than ever and hoping that the weather will cooperate for us.  No quote can more properly describe my outlook as much as this one, it has gotten me through some tough times before and continues to inspire me...

"Life isn’t about waiting for the storm to pass…it’s learning to dance in the rain."

I walked home tonight with my umbrella closed, raindrops wetting my face and the coolness relaxing my heart. It was refreshing and liberating, people stared, I smiled with my eyes closed. The next few days should be more of the same, hopefully Seoul doesn't flood or float away before I leave, either way I will miss this city. 

much love xo
