Do you check the weather report before you leave your home each day? Why? Maybe, the weather forecast effects how you dress each morning or how you schedule your day’s activities.
Does the weather influence your attitude? Can we influence the weather? I think we can.
Consider these “weather conditions”…..
A Stormy day…..Our outbursts of anger are like the violent winds of a tornado that leave lasting wreckage in their wake. Our sarcasm is as uncomfortable to those who hear us as is a day of high humidity. When we gossip, we pollute the air in our community filling it with smog and an offensive odor.
A Beautiful day………Kindness is always a breath of fresh air. A compliment is like verbal sunshine. We can smile and warm a chilly morning. We can paint a rainbow after a storm. A hug can blow dark clouds away.
Can we influence the weather. I think we can. What will you do to make today a beautiful day?
Attitude is everything. Experience a mindful pause now.
