I was sitting here looking out the window watching it snow (again) when just a few hours ago it was in the mid 50's and nice enough outside to go without a coat. The craziness of the season looks like this. Earlier today a buyer and I at a home inspection looking at trees, bushes and shrubs in the yard all getting ready to bud. We were looking at the trunk, shape and buds trying to determine what they actually were. Fast forward eight hours and a winter storm warning is here. Spring is in the air and it seems all of us in Colorado are ready for beautiful days and maybe a final snowstorm.
I was pondering how do we emotionally slog through this time of year when we are ready for winter to be over and another snow storm comes through. The title of an article late today caught my attention. "21 People Share Something Someone Said That Forever Changed Their way of Thinking".
Change my way of thinking, how perfect. Especially when we can't control the weather. Have you ever thought about what someone said, maybe just in passing, that turned out to be a defining moment in your life?
Here are two that I found amazing and a link to the full article.
- "You know you are an adult when you can be right without proving the other person wrong"
- "I learned to give not because I know how it feels to have to much. But because I know how it feels to have nothing"
I would love to hear what spoke to you or something you have heard elsewhere that impacted you and your life. In the meantime, Happy Easter and Spring however it may show up.
