I’ve spent the last week painting, cooking, cleaning, driving, hiking, eating, catching up with friends, and my favorite, spending time with the people I love. Standing here at the end of my week with a clear mind and a very full heart.”
Rain dedicates her Instagram page to spreading motivating messages. With a social media bio that reads “inspirational writer, and full-time warrior” as well as captioning all of her pics with #Stayhappy or #staystrong.
