“It’s not right in one life too much rain”, that’s from a Paul McCartney song, I’m not sure if it’s his original line of if he got it from some other great thinker, but non-the-less it’s a great line. It’s one of those lines that make you think. It’s not a typical Paul McCartney line; it’s a little down and out sounding, like life is just crap. But in truth, I don’t think that’s what he was saying; I think the line is more about perspective than anything else.

Keeping our lives in balance, that’s what it’s all about. We need to learn that, we need to practice that, and we need to implement that in to our daily life. Perspective, how we see things, how we interrupt life.

No life is perfect, and truly no day is ever truly smooth sailing, yet some of us see life that way. We are said to be wearing rose tinted glasses. We choose to see life as upbeat and positive. We chose to create a world that meets our needs. Now the argument can be made that others who do not see the world through rose colored classes choose to do so. And that is true; they do chose to see life as a negative. But once again it’s all about balance. We need to allow the sun to shine in our life as well as allowing the rain to fall. Each has a purpose.

Too Much Rain  

By: Paul McCartney

Laugh when your eyes are burning
Smile when your heart is filled with pain
Sigh as you brush away your sorrow
Make a vow that it’s not gonna happen again

It’s not right in one life too much rain

You know the wheels keep turning
Why do the tears run down your face?
We used to hide away our feelings
But for now tell yourself it won’t happen again

It’s not right in one life too much rain

It’s too much for anyone
Too hard for anyone
Who wants a happy and peaceful life
You’ve gotta learn to laugh

Smile when you’re spinning round and round
Sigh as you think about tomorrow
Make a vow that your gonna be happy again

It’s all right in your life no more rain

It’s too much for anyone
Too hard for anyone
Who wants a happy and peaceful life
You’ve gotta learn to laugh

The song sings of finding peace, happiness and balance in one’s life. The song speaks of choosing to see life as positive, choosing a balance between rain in your life or sunshine.
