Weather that fluctuates between winter and spring, gave me some great insights in how we interact with the weather. Weather arrives and we then get to decide our response.
Warmer temps, melting snow and bare roads means biking!
Too cold and windy for skiing....means, get your snowshoes on.
When the winds die down a bit and the temperature remains cold, take your skis and find a trail! Bringing a friend along is a bonus!
The beauty on the trials is breath taking - nature showing off.
We had the moon in front of us and the sun behind. Crisp fast tracks! It was cold but invigorating in its sharpness!
In early winter when our daylight hours are short, we take headlamps and head out!
The night time trails are enchanting. The quietness surrounds us.
So, here is my take away.
The more active you are the more you love the changing weather! And, the more accepting you are with all its expressions.
Weather is the leader and we follow its lead.
What a great remind of how reality wins; but 100% of the time.
In my old inactive days, I would want the weather to change and not be this way or that way. I would argue with it always, somehow believing, IF I spunked long enough, it would change and be what I wanted it to be.
There is some magic in accepting the weather each morning, just as it is.
And, then deciding how you can play with it that day.
Life isn't about what happens.
It is all about how we respond.
True empowerment is following the lead of reality.
Being with What Is.
No matter how it appears.
Each day we are asked to play!
