Summer is here in Southern California and temperatures are higher and the humidity reminds me of FL and GA. It seems that there is a direct correlation between higher heat numbers and lower amounts of patience, tolerance and kindness.
The one thing about the weather is that no matter how much one complains about it, it never changes. In fact, it seems like the more the complaining, the worse it gets – or so it seems.
The Truth however is that although it may seem that we live life from the outside in (what happens to us determines how we feel), in reality we live life from the inside out. Our thoughts, beliefs, and actions determine our life. When we understand this truth, we stop blaming the weather, our medical condition, our age, our income, etc. and take responsibility for our thinking and our life.
When you wake up tomorrow, make the decision to have a great day, to see the beauty all around you, to smile at others, to be the person you were created to be.
