It is Freeeeeezzzing. UGH. I can't believe I am actually here cursing the cold snap that has been blessing this beautiful state of California. But alas, here I am, wishing for warmer weather, thinking of the days when I was melting into a puddle on the floor, sitting in front of fans and willing away hours in shops and restaurants to just avoid the blazing heat... Well, thinking of all that actually might make me appreciate the cold weather while I have it. Maybe not love it, but appreciate what I have before me. It gives me a weird peace to be satisfied with what I have instead of wishing for something else. So often we are always counting down the days 'til summer, that trip, school ending, etc... To be honest, all that looking ahead is exhausting. I just wasn't to be content with the day I am sitting in, and I suppose that all comes from within. Everything around us is constantly changing. Moments can come and change a whole course of life. Something we wish for finally comes true, or doesn't, and there we are left to deal with the next steps of whatever that journey means. This may be getting off topic, but at least I am grateful for this cold weather, this sweater with a rose, and the ability to still walk around outside even though I feel like I may just freeze in place.
I suppose it's all about perspective.
