A Delightful Blizzard

This morning the snowflakes looked as big as playing cards. It snowed off and on, and pretty much on, all morning.

Walking and driving through the snow was exciting....buuuuut....it didn't stick. And, for now, that's a good thing.

It would have been easy to get kind of anxious watching the snow fall and remembering a couple of weeks ago when the snow locked everyone in.

So often in life we experience situations that start off running pretty wide open. It seem like they'll be much bigger, or worse, or important than they turn out to be. If you let yourself get cranked up and react to the initial "snowfall" you may end up expending precious energy, money, emotion, or political capital tnat you will need later.

When it seems that life is turning into a blizzard maybe the best thing to do is step back and collect your thoughts. A wonderful explanation I read last week says that stepping back lets your brain catch up to your emotions. Wonderful!!!

It's sunny outside now. For a day that started off like a blizzard this one has turned into a delight.

Maybe life is like that.
