It’s been a rainy week on the East Coast. Everyone has a different attitude on rain, and I personally have a secret affinity for it (I feel like it’s a reset button to life). The thing that is funny about having an opinion on rain or the weather any particular day is that it is completely out of our control, and any energy we waste on reacting to it or allowing our moods to react to it is energy completely wasted.
The greatest umbrella that we have on a rainy day is our attitude. In fact, that is also the greatest umbrella that we can have in life. Attitude provides us with shade on a hot day and protection from the downpours of life. However, just like attitude, without engaging your umbrella and actually opening it up, you will never receive the benefits of its protection.
Never walk outside of your bedroom without your umbrella ready and prepared. Be ready to know when to open it and use it. Just because you have a great attitude available to you doesn’t mean it will open itself, so engage the right attitude consciously and on a daily basis.
Attitude is a choice, so keep yours open and engaged.
