I’ve really been enjoying the snow that has blanketed North America recently.
It has been a joy to watch it fall from the sky. And even the rain has frozen into sheets of ice that the kids love to mess with.
If you knew me in my past you would find the above statements shocking.
You see, I used to hate snow. I had to drive to work everyday, and I hated driving in the stuff. And in the ice, the sleet, the mud, you name it.
In truth, I had always enjoyed unusual weather, but once I “grew up” I simply couldn’t enjoy it anymore. I thought that this was just one more aspect of adulthood that sucked.
In recent years, as I have tailored my lifestyle in ways that better fit my nature, I have rediscovered my love of unusual weather. And where we live, snow is unusual. At least it was, until this winter!
Today I find that I am able to enjoy many things that I could not enjoy before. And when these many small, enjoyable things in my life accumulate and multiply, what I am left with is a life worth living.
It is impossible for me to convey how much of a difference this change in my life has made. How much relief I feel. How much more color that I see in life.
I am able to enjoy the little things that were mere annoyances before. And I am able to be close to my children in ways that were impossible for me before.
I let go of my old life and chose to intentionally direct my new life. And I’ve never looked back!
So now I say, “Let it snow!”
Talk to you again soon,
