People make assumptions. For example, I like it when it rains — maybe not all the time but there is something refreshing and invigorating walking in a storm especially if you’re dressed for it — and of course there is the old adage, “today’s rain is tomorrow’s whisky.’ So, I like the rain and I know I’m not alone.
So why do weather presenters or newsreaders always give the impression that sunshine is the only forecast that will put a smile on our faces?
Actually, I just made a presumption myself there by suggesting that ALL weather presenters share that kind of news when obviously not all do.
I wonder if assumptions are similar to prejudices? We look at someone and make a judgement by simply going on their physical appearance — the way they dress or talk or if we get to know them, what they do or where they come from.
I know many people go through life worried about what other folks will think of them and they go out their way to fit in and feel accepted. Wouldn’t it be wonderful to be ourselves whatever that entails, to discover out true identity and live our life the way we choose.
It sounds as nice as a walk in the rain.
