Are you a Weather Complainer?
I am standing in my yard on April 15th 2019. (Yes April…)
I am standing in front of what we call Mount Tanner. It’s called Mount Tanner because this is the heap of snow in front of Tanner’s window. He actually
cannot see anything but snow outside his bedroom window! I just went into
town and just heard all kinds of people griping about the weather,
oh my goodness, it's April and we still have SNOW!
Here is the thing. We live in Muskoka and often in April there is going to be a ton of snow. When we complain about the weather, if that would actually change the weather… then I say go for it and complain about the weather.
But there really is nothing we can do. The weather is going to be the weather.
So I say let’s refuse to complain and let’s embrace it no matter where we live, no matter what the weather. It is our choice. We can say “how nice, the sun is actually shining” or “the snow is going to melt soon” or “it’s a beautiful day”. We can choose not to complain. When I hear people complain I often wonder if they were ill, or something terrible did happen to them in their lives, would they realize how insignificant it is to complain and wish it was something different?
Just think about that for a moment. I refuse to complain about the weather,
I encourage you to do the same. Embrace it (no matter what it is.)
I would love for you to share a comment about how wonderful the weather
is wherever you live - even if this is what your yard looks like on April 15th!
Have a great day everyone!

I totally agree.... the weather is either wet or cold or hot or whatever! It is what it is! It takes practice but I choose over and over again to not complain!

It sure does take practice! And when we get good at it, we spread more sunshine, even on cloudy days!!! :)

Just look at what is happening outside right now. It is pouring rain, gloomy, misty and downright beautiful. If you realized that This Is It and in the next 10 seconds you might be gone from this planet then one would stop and think about why they get grumpy over silly things. Yes, I get a little grumpy but really - it’s better to use the mind to be positive . Being alive is a beautiful thing.

What a wonderful insight to share. Thank you Kay. It really is all relative. When the grumpiness starts creeping in, I imagine myself complaining to someone who is ill, dying or homeless. My perspective shifts rapidly and gratitude ensues! ;)

We have a saying. “A rainy day at the cottage is better than a sunny day at work!”

That is for sure! And of course a sunny day at work, is better than no day or no work!! ;)
