Woke up this morning to heavy storm clouds and a very wet day.
Now just an hour later the sun has come out and the puddles being generously swooshed over the pedestrians at the road edge are now drying out. It is definitely a reminder that each day, each moment in life ´ Is what it is´. We can´t change the weather, the number of cars on the road, the leaves falling. Just as we cannot change a bereavement, a diagnosis of an illness that will change your life, the loss of a job. Nor can we change a joyful moment such as a birth, falling in love or a fantastic dance……
Yet we all focus on the negative and dwell on those moments.
During the good times we just sit back and enjoy them, not for a moment stopping to appreciate the good fortune that is happening to us or around us.
The bad times we do stop, ponder, contemplate and over analyse so is it any wonder that life then gives us more of what we focus on. If we can change our mind set and accept that it really ´Is, what it is ´, then we can stop the analysis and move on to a better mindset and a better way of living.
