I need to be reminded of the following.
When something is about to happen, and you have absolutely no control about it, being optimistic, pessimistic, or realistic doesn’t matter. Whether you’re happy about it, or it makes you feel totally depressed, it won’t affect that unavoidable thing that will happen.
I’m talking about things like rain, tornadoes, and the passing of time. Even if you believe throughout every single cell of your body that it’s going to be a beautiful sunny day, if it’s meant to rain, it will. You have no control on some kind of events. They are going to happen, and you can’t do a thing about it.
The best way to deal with those kind of events would be to simply let them be, let them pass, without a thought. Accept that they are.
To be careless about uncontrollable events would be such a relief. But we’re human beings, and we are affected by what we focus on. The things that our senses can perceive will always affect us.
You know it’s your attitude towards the unavoidable that can be controlled. Have to courage to change, and see the rain as being the most beautiful thing you’re experimenting at the moment instead of thinking about it as a nuisance for your little self.
Our days, our weeks, our lives are filled with rain drops and sunshines. Both can be seen as irritating hassles, but they also can be blessings.
Which side will you choose? It’s up to you…
