Well I’m literally chillin' outside. After three days of cold rain and clouds the sun is finally out. It’s still chilly 47° (8°c) but I’m sitting outside with the sun to my back. Watching the laundry dry and checking out my neighbors at church. It’s sorta of a silly nonsensical life, but one I readily embrace. While I’m cold (which I may have mentioned a few times), but I feel pretty good. Oh I know the world the is “going to hell in a hand basket”. But isn’t going to stop me from having a decent attitude.
You know just because the situation around you looks like crap. Doesn’t mean you have to be mad or upset about it. Now I’m not saying to just give up and live in your situation. What I mean is to do your best to face it with a little hope and faith. If you know me at all, this may sound a bit hypocritical. But seriously, acceptance and clarity are just what you need to see you through.
So as my buddies next door pack it up for the day, I know things will eventually change. Nature teaches us that things move in a cycle. Winter comes, but soon after so does spring. So while I’m riding on an optimistic high, I’m reminding myself, that “this to shall pass”. So don’t let fear take you down the rabbit hole so far, that you can’t see the light. Accept your fear and love those parts of yourself that are messy. Then learn to forgive yourself so you can eventually see things change.
