The crazy weather has me thinking a lot lately. One minute it is 78 degrees and I switch on the air conditioner and we play outside in the sunshine. The next minute I am switching on the heat, and episodes of Peppa Pig and Yo Gabba Gabba to keep Xavier busy throughout multiple rainy days.
It always amazes me how important circles are in our world. Did you ever notice babies first toys commonly are circles, balls, binkies, bottles, even mobiles. There is a cyclic motion we are just born to find soothing. I believe it is the cyclic motion of the universe and so it allows us to appreciate and know that things may be bad one minute and good the next. However, it is important to appreciate each moment for what it is.
As much as we love the sunshine and fresh air, the driving and doing of so many fun things. Sometimes the hunkering down inside due to rain ( or snow in some cases) makes you see things from a different perspective. You learn something about yourself or you notice a new thing your child does or you learn something new together.
There are so many moments in every cycle that we are going through in our life. You have to remember that if you stay calm and have faith the storm will never come.
If you are stuck inside due to the storms that are hitting the eastern coast right now I hope that you make the best out of every second of it. Use the opportunity to learn more about yourself, your family and your future. We make some of our best decisions when we are relaxing with ones we love and are comfortable and at ease. As important as it is to always have your ducks in a row,
sometimes it's better to roll with the punches and go with the flow. Have faith that things will work out for the best they always do!
