Just three days ago, he sent me this photo of the view from a client's back yard. Spectacular.
Today, Friday, May 2, he sent this one.
What a change, huh.
I started writing this simple post about how fast things can change. If you don't like the weather, just wait 5 minutes and it will change. Sunny, snowy, back to sunny. In three days we go from beautiful, brilliant Spring to beautiful, brilliant snow. The end.
But as I write, I remember what is really important, the nugget as they say. It's not just observing changes happening around us. It's remembering that, as we go through our day, ....every moment we are at choice. If we can't actually change a situation, we can choose to change the way we look at it. We can focus on the gift instead of being halted by the challenge. We can respond thoughtfully to a situation rather than just reacting to it.
We can choose to feel, to see, to tolerate, to celebrate, to enjoy, to be miserable. You agree?
Sometimes we want change to "hurry up"! Sometimes we want a moment to last forever. And even though the sunny day is easier to love, you must admit the snowy cold day is really just as beautiful.
Enjoy this day!
