Spring in Indiana is sort of like a game of chance. One never knows exactly what sort of weather you are going to find around here. One day it could be 70 degrees and sunshine, the next 18 degrees and snow.
One Spring Break the youngest son and I along with my niece and nephew made a front yard bird habitat in the 80 degree temps and sunshine all week. Last year on Spring Break the grandchildren and I built a snowman in that very space where their uncle and I once worked.
Last week was our school system’s Spring Break. Mother Nature was an emotional mess for sure. Monday their first official day off we spent going to Ft. Wayne in a white out. Yeah, snow flying every which way, you couldn’t see the car in front of you unless it was right there. A few days before the sun was shining and it was beautiful outside.
Then people wonder why someone who relates to the seasons can get on an emotional up and down, LOL.
Frankly, I suspect it is not only those who embrace the seasons and changes in weather that follow this emotional rollercoaster, but also those who don’t realize they are doing it. I’ve witnessed it on a front row seat sort of spectator with numerous others as well.
Sometimes it is hard to take on a ‘just stay out of it’ stance and more often than not I find I open my mouth when I should just keep it shut. It’s that filter ordeal I’m telling you.
One of the things I’ve been consciously working on is ‘thought before speak’ sometimes it works out, other times not so good. But the main thing is I am learning to recognize when I need to ‘just stay out of it’ a lot sooner than I used to.
Venting, this is another area of life I’m working toward. I have been doing WAY TOO MUCH of this lately. Something I am hardly comfortable with for sure, but for some reason it has become a comfort zone, errrrrrrrrrrrrrrrr…
Oh well, I will get a grasp on this aspect of life, hopefully sooner than later J
Everyone have a lovely day!!!
Blessings to all!!!
