Early this morning I went for a walk, but something was a little different about this walk. The sun was rising and the sky was full of colour: Orange, peach and blue it was looking to be a great day, so clear and promising.
I stopped for a moment to consider, is it really going to just be a great day because the weather is going to be sunny?” This sounds kind of silly. Why can't everyday be amazing?
When we watch the weather report on the news waiting to see what will be predicted with the day or week's forecast. Imagine the pressure we place on ourselves depending on how the weather is every single day? We would be all over the place in every sense of the word i.e What do I need to wear today, do I need to pack a jacket or umbrella the list is endless.
In my day to day working environment, I hear many comments about how the weather is going to be. If it's sunny people are very chirpy and sunny, but if it's cold and rainy I notice that the mood in some changes, kind of like the old 80's mood rings. A different colour meant a certain mood you were feeling, except instead of a moody colour its wether a dark cloud is present or the sun.
But what if we could feel light and warm all of the time? Instead of holding onto a picture of what that particular weather may be, we could actually feel amazing just for being who we are everyday….
While on my walk enjoying the rising sun with my friend I stayed connected to every step I made and could feel my feet touch the ground and each breath moved freely through my lungs and a real delicateness in my stride and my posture. We were chatting and I still remained connected to me. Throughout the walk I could feel the warmth of the sun within me too, and it felt awesome!
So if I could be connected like this on a sunny day I could surely be like this on any day in any moment, wind, hail or shine. We are our own meteorologists and can share exactly what the weather will be like from our very own weather vane i.e our bodies. Staying connected to ourselves and how we move in every moment is the key to living a life of joy and when someone says "Wow it looks like it's going to be a nice sunny day? You can say in full knowing of who you are " Yes today like everyday is going to be amazing, as I am here connected to how I move in every moment in every way and that's a pretty amazing weather forecast to me.
