- Extreme weather affects people
- This is symbolic of life
- Add to the angst of the situation
Boston is predicting 23 more inches of snow on top of the several feet of snow they’ve already had. What is this bad weather trying to tell them?
This is the heaping of more snow, more pain, and more inconvenience, on top of the already large amount of inconvenience and suffering that people already have. Not only is Boston expecting to get a lot more snow, but the entire Northern East Coast. Is this an anomaly in the weather, or is this just overkill of something that happens naturally every year?
In the winter people in cold areas expect snow storms, in fact if there weren’t any, it would be odd. So why is it so odd when the opposite extreme, heavy snows, arrive? Shouldn’t people expect it at some time or another? This is just an example of how extreme weather affects people’s interpretation of the past. If you live in a rainy area and you get a heavy downpour of precipitation, it’s really not out of the ordinary, it’s just more than what you usually get.
This is symbolic of life. Sometimes you get more of something you have already endured, another tragedy in your life, or an illness gets worse. Anything you’ve experienced can be increased or decreased on your journey. Just because you’ve had success up to this point in your life doesn’t mean success will continue – it could, and even increase, but you can’t make it happen nor should you complain and stress out if it doesn’t happen. These are example of the ebb and flow of life.
If you could predict the exact amount of something that will happen and it happens like that over and over, year after year, then what would there be to talk about or complain about? People seem to get much pleasure out of complaining about their inconveniences, the weather, and even their illnesses. Doesn’t that just add to the angst of the situation?
QUESTION: What should readers take away from this message today?
ANSWER: That in the winter time you should expect snow storms…little ones along with big ones.
QUESTION: Why is this information timely?
ANSWER: This information is timely because people relate getting punished by something as normal as the weather to all the other things punishing them in their life.
QUESTION: How can readers best apply this information to their lives right now?
ANSWER: Take the situation where you feel buried in your life, struggling to shovel your way out of being over-extended, and struggling to stay afloat. These are examples of the ebb and flow of tragedies and happiness in your life. Life is seeking balance.
COMMENTARY: The more people are stressed out the more they are affected by the weather. This is why people have complained about the extremes in the weather more since the economy has gotten worse. The weather has a strong impact on the mood of a person, which is highly based on how their lives are going at the time. So, if the weather is not conducive to your well- being, then move. Life is challenging enough without adding the burden of bad weather to the equation. You can always change your situation and, in doing so, change your life or your perspective on life.
