Can you believe another month is almost over? Today is our last post really looking at our topic of the month: seasons. What I’ve been thinking about a lot lately is the joy that can be found in each and every season. I know, you’re mentally complaining about at least one season in your head right now, like how much snow there is in winter, how much rain there is in spring/the rainy season, how hot summer/the dry season is, how cold fall gets and miserable it is to watch the leaves fall off the trees etc. You don’t have to like every season, but that doesn’t mean you can’t find some joy in each of them. For example, I don’t like snow but still find joy in watching kids go sledding, or sitting in a comfy chair watching the snow fall with a cup of hot tea and a good book.
Like so many things, the seasons are really what you make of them. Last Wednesday I talked about what to do if your business is heading into a slow season for the summer. Just because you may not be making many sales, it doesn’t mean there is nothing you can, could or should be doing during this time. Just because it’s raining out today doesn’t mean that you have to do nothing because your outside plans were cancelled. Just because you have a broken arm or leg doesn’t mean there’s no summer fun to be had.
I really believe that life is what you make of it a majority of the time. If you are feeling miserable, that’s the life situation you’ll create around you. If you’re feeling like a winner, that’s the situation you’ll create around you. If you want to enjoy your least favorite season, I believe you’ll be able to find reasons to do so! But it only happens when we choose that path. So what path will you choose this summer? Will you choose to find some reason for joy in each and every day?
