Well-Being: Talking about the weather (March 2018 Newsletter)

'Oh no! It's raining again.' 

Or it's too cold or too hot; too bright or too dark. It's rare when the weather is just perfect for each of us. It's not something we can control or change, but we can change our attitude and how we react to the changing weather each day. Just because the weather is not pleasant doesn't mean we can stay in bed and ignore it. We get up, get dressed and head out the door. Or we don't even open the front door. Instead we go out to the garage, get in the car and drive off with the heating or air-conditioning controlling our immediate environment. Sometimes we don't really need to experience the weather at all, but we still complain. Let's stop making 'weather' the topic of inane conversation, and let's start experiencing nature and each day in the raw. (How are you interpreting that last sentence? It's up to you!) Make it a point to step outside each day walking on your own two feet. There's something amazing in all kinds of weather and the power and grandeur of nature that stirs something deep inside. Let's start to wake up the sleeping soul within.
