What does a mother do when her daughter wants to go out and play in the rain? The daughter cries, complains, throws fits, is dissatisfied and angry with the world when she can't go play in the rain. The mother keeps telling her that she can go and play in the rain... as soon as it starts raining. Nobody can make it rain. It's up to the raincloud.
The daughter looks up at the raincloud. It's there in the sky. She tells her mother she loves the rain and wants to play in the rain. The mother says she knows that. The cloud knows that too. But it's still not letting loose the rain. The mother can't make it rain. The daughter can't make it rain. The cloud is the only one who can make it rain.
Don't throw away your happiness & your life in the present because it won't rain. Just because it's not raining doesn't mean that you can't play and enjoy your life. Daughter, it's not your responsibility, nor is it mine... to make it rain. Let the raincloud do what it needs to do. You and I can't make it rain.
