There Is A Lesson In Everything
Here I am in my office finishing up my day and when I look out I realize things have changed. When I came to work this morning it was 53 F and felt real nice out.
Now one of those cold winter cold fronts have moved in during the day. There is a freezing drizzle outside. Most people have elected to stay home instead of the usual Friday night festivities.
So what have I learned from a snow and ice storm.
I have learned sometimes no matter what you want you have to go-slow and be careful what you do. (Obvious)
That when things are hard you will not have near as much competition. (Not many people on the road)
When you do something when things are not good everyone notices. (Hit somebody when it is bad weather like this as there is people everywhere.)
That no one can make the decision for you to press forward. (I still have a 5-mile drive to get home)
That no one else really knows what you can and can't do no matter what they say. (Don't listen to the naysayers. Prove them wrong by doing what they say you cannot do.)
You control your destiny, you decide what tomorrow will be like, you decide to move forward or stay put.
Sometimes we will not move until it gets uncomfortable. (Bed and food are not here in the office. I have to move toward what I want.)
I believe there are important lessons in life just like there are lessons in life from this snowstorm.
So I am going to close the office down and slide on home.
Onward and Upward.
