Know Your Limits

There are lessons all around us.

If you are a fellow Montanan reading this, you are fully aware of the type of winter we’ve been having (and continuing to have, lol!) Will Spring ever come?!?

The lesson we can learn from this long, snowy winter is this: WE ARE NOT IN CONTROL OF EVERYTHING – WE ARE NOT GOD.

 Although I teach/train on keeping one’s mind positive, there are limits to what you can do and cannot do. As humans, we can only do so much.

I cannot control the weather, but I can control my reaction to it. (Perhaps stomping my feet and having a tantrum about all the snow isn’t a very adult reaction, but it IS a reaction, lol!)

All the positive thinking in the world cannot change our weather. (Believe me, I’ve tried, lol! If it were up to me, we’d have 80-degree weather all year long!) But those of you who run hot would absolutely despise having 80-degree weather! So isn’t it great that we aren’t all-powerful?!

Isn’t it great that we DO have seasons?

There is at least some enjoyable seasonal weather for each of us where we live. If you like the cold and snow, you have hit the jackpot this winter!

And Spring WILL come, in its own time.

That’s the thing. Sometimes the things we want in life, no matter how positive we are, no matter how many ‘vision boards’ we make, no matter how much we think the message in “The Secret” is going to make everything go OUR way, the reality is that sometimes, the timing just isn’t right.

Sometimes, we have to be patient. Sometimes, we don’t get what we want. And sometimes, not getting it can be a blessing (we just don’t always see it that way at first.)

Until next time,
