Lately, I’ve been learning how to embrace life’s challenges instead of running from them. A few weeks ago, I had a conversation with my uncle Tommy. At this time, it still wasn’t quite spring in the New York City area and this Florida girl was so beyond over the cold weather. I told my uncle that I wished I lived somewhere where I felt like I was on vacation all the time, no more winter for me. He said “yeah I get that but you have to embrace the winter instead of being afraid of it, you know, go sledding, skiing, build a snowman, do all of the things you can only do during winter.”
This got me thinking that I should probably live my life more like that in general. Usually, as soon as I make my mind up that I don’t like something or that I’m afraid of something, I’m out, but not anymore. It’s time to embrace because really complaining about the things we can’t change just drains our energy and the energy of those around us.
Lots of love,
