I remember the very first time I saw snow.
I was a little kid. My parents my brother and I traveled to the mountains of Yosemite, and we saw our long awaited white delight.
The one thing about the whole trip that puzzled me was that my father refused to get out of the car.
What I later found out was that my dad grew up in the snow, and for him, the snow was not synonymous with fun.
The snow was synonymous with shoveling, and freezing did I mention cold and freezing?
Now after many years, after living in the snow, I too can feel the pain of my father. Though I too dislike the snow, it is a still a necessary evil of life.
Are there things in your life that you once loved, but you know hate?While living in Michigan I spent a winter riding my bicycle in this same snow, and I had a revelation.
I can’t change the cold of snow, why to complain about it. I decided that I would embrace the snow and live with it, not against it!
Have you been burnt out by the snowy situations in your life? Are you tired of it’s cold and irritated by its chill? Choose to focus on that which you can change and embrace that which you can not. Reunite with your inner child and make the snow fun again! Begin to look at the snows in your life with new eyes.
See you later going to make a Snow Man!
