Finding time to appreciate what your day brings your way can be a challenge sometimes – but it’s well worth the effort!
As those who know me are pretty well aware, to say that I’m not a big fan of snow would be a bit of an understatement! It invariably throws schedules out of whack, makes it more difficult to get around, and adds layers of new complication to many daily tasks around the farm.
So, yesterday, as I watched the snow fall outside my office window, I had the opportunity to stretch, be creative, and find things to appreciate about this new development. I even started a list and quickly came up with three plusses!
- Of course, there’s no denying the pristine beauty that new snow brings as it transforms the landscape.
- I also love the incredible quiet, as the flakes drift to earth. Time seems to slow down … and the silence is peaceful.
- One of my coaching clients was delayed – a glitch that, I realized, provided me with an unexpected opportunity to work on my upcoming teleclass. (It’s on March 3 at 7PM ET – stay tuned for more information soon!)
Having made my brief list, I could feel my mood lighten considerably as I turned from annoyance and frustration with reality toward acceptance and appreciation. What a difference that small pause made in the quality of my energy as I embarked on the rest of my afternoon and evening!
