Grab That Bull
So after a very crappy evening, followed by an even crappy morning; the sun has broken through the dull grey sky. Seeing an opportunity shine through my window, I grabbed the dirty clothes, washed them, then hung them out to dry. This whole week there hasn’t been any chances to wash and dry clothes. So when an opportunity presents itself, you gotta grab the bull by the horns and go.
Seldom does a storm system pass this quickly and clear up. Usually you have to wait on the wrap around clouds from the low to move through. But this is a bit of a blessing, in that not only is it sunny, but it’s warm, windy, and dry. With the clothes hung out, I’ve parked myself under the branches of the fig tree/bush with a glass of tea. Not giving much thought to dark mood that was hanging over me earlier.
There’s a vulture circling overhead, but I’m not going to take it as a bad omen. Instead I’ll just watch as one of God’s waste disposals quietly soars on the wind. Our attitude and perception are often influenced by nature. Rather through sunny skies or by the brut force of the rain, nature seizes onto our emotions guiding us neither to wisdom or foolishness. It’s safe to say that my emotions from earlier had been turned to foolishness and pain. Effecting my mood and clouding my judgement. This happens quite often to the best of us, sometimes causing us to do unspeakable things, especially to ourselves. As much as it may feel like the end. Often it’s just another dull day we have to live through. So be mindful of your thoughts have appreciation for the light that will eventually shine. It’s all a matter of believing and having the courage to grab that bull and hold on.
