I’m usually creative in my writing but this time I'd like to borrow from CHICADEEGRAMMY's blog based on winter weather and the issue of control. We like to think we are in control, but
we have no control of the weather and we have gotten several days of extreme heat this month. It made me think. Everyone you talk to, even the news reporters and weather people are talking about the heat we are getting. I feel this is more than our normal, even on days I started gardening early it seemed quite hot before the time I planned to be done. My attitude is why complain, I can’t control the weather and all the complaining isn’t going to make it go away.
What really got me thinking is we complain all about what we can’t control, why not work on what we can control. Take time and think about it. We can control what goes in our mouths healthy or unhealthy food. We can control if we just sit there or get up and move our bodies. We can control taking steps to healthier bodies, drinking enough water, making the right choices and working on this healthy lifestyle change.
Yes, maybe we have lots of hot days, but that is only temporary. Our lifestyle change can be permanent if we just take the time and do it.
I will end this with one of my favorite little prayers
God grant me the serenity to accept the things I cannot change
The courage to change the things I can
And the wisdom to know the difference.
