What is falling outside now is snow, real live flakey snow. When shopping last night at the Health Food Store (pre snow storm shopping) I had a funny feeling in the pit of my stomach. A few weeks ago I stocked up pre storm and lost a lot of savory goodies to a power failure.
But it doesn't make sense to let one bad event just keep replaying over and over. Yes, bad things happen, but so do good things. The wind is making the snow look a lot fiercer than it probably really is, but it is keeping the cat and I amused nonetheless.
If each snowflake is different, so is each individual moment in our lives. Together they make up the accumulation of experience and wisdom (hah) that make each of us our own unique being. Yes, I've had some tense moments, some scared moments, moments of saddness and bitterness and anger. But that is also mixed in with lots of time spent watching snowflakes with the cat, floating in the warm ocean or reaching a goal.
Remember to celebrate your own accumulation!
