A FRIDAY THOUGHT: THERE IS NO SUCH THING AS BAD WEATHER

The weather in Chicago is currently insane. Less than a week ago it was beautiful out, at least 60 degrees and sunny. Yet this week it has been dark, grey and raining non-stop. The city is flooding, streets are caving in, and buses are filling with water. I have fallen in love with Chicago in a serious way, but lately I’ve been craving a change in weather for the better. Or at least that’s what I was letting myself think.

Yesterday morning I went to yoga with my favorite teacher, Allison. She started us off by saying how lucky we were for having such stormy weather. Huh? It was only 6:30am so I assumed I misheard her. But she continued. She explained how energetic lightening and thunder is and how we should use this natural spark to buzz the rest of our body, to exhilarate the rest of our day. First of all, how amazing is Allison? Second of all, what a great reminder that the opportunity to enjoy the weather is completely up to our unique perspective.

I mean just look at these photographs I’ve taken of Chicago over the past 9 months. Isn’t each one of them beautiful in their own way?

So wherever you are and whatever it looks like outside of your window this morning, I hope you are enjoying it.

if you’re lucky enough to experience different types of good weather, you’re lucky enough
