More Snow Is On The Way
More Snow is on the way. It has been a snowy and bitter cold winter for most of the north east of the United States. Here in the New York, where I reside people have had enough of winter. When I walk my dog, I engage in conversation with people who proclaim that they are done with snow, and the cold. Although I prefer the summer and warm weather, I find myself accepting the harsh conditions and realizing that there is no use in complaining about it. By gripping and avoiding what is, you are pushing away the possibilities of the good. There is something to be grateful for in everything. The snow is providing much due moisture for the flowers and trees that were parched this past summer. It is killing off the eggs of gypsy moths and other invasive insects. It is giving me an opportunity to focus on my writing and studies. By accepting what is, we are staying in the present moment, and that is where our power is. By avoiding and pushing it away, we are giving our power away, and that is where our problems begin. So, stop complaining about the snow and cold and think about the miracles that are right underneath. Start shoveling and uncover them.
