The Thermostat

I had been looking forward to sunshine, the weather forecast had also reassured me. Suddenly it began to pour. It didn’t even start with a drizzle, it seemed to be a flood! My heart dropped as I pictured my plans crashing!

I reminded myself that I couldn’t do anything about the weather outside, as I watched the fierce downpour drowning my dreams. I knew I had the freedom to choose my response, I could give in to gloomy thoughts or make room for brighter ones, noting what I could not change.

I determined to reset my inner thermostat to a setting that would do me good. I cancelled my plans, got comfy in my zone and did some writing that kept me smiling as I poured my heart on paper. I had no way of changing the weather outside, but I had the freedom to accept the things I couldn’t change and change what I could for my good. What thoughts are you dwelling on? Are the thoughts helpful or harmful? What thoughts would be healthier to embrace?

It looked like the perfect dream, living on acres of lush green pastures, evening walks on the farm inhaling fresh clean air, watching sunrise and sunset untainted with man's interference! The scenes started to change like a movie fast forwarded and precious moments seemed uncaptured till quickly gone, never to return. I started learning to cherish life, the greatest gift above all things! I needed more, so I sought the source and got to know it came from Love and with it was always freedom! The rapidly changing scenes, with years speeding by, have been stormy and sometimes still, bright and grey, with highs and low! I have found meaningful living is not determined by circumstances, but rather by what goes on within. The fuel in the heart powers the body, its activities and interactions. Love gives life and powers living. Embracing freedom enables meaningful living and beautiful expressions of life. I remain passionate about a journey with life, love and liberty and hopefully encouraging others to do the same, living purposefully and leading in love by liberty. #LoveLifeLiberty
