Here we are again, dealing with a snow storm that's going to dump a bunch of snow on the Capital Region. This means bad driving conditions, not that it will stop those with 4 wheel drive from flying down the road. It also means school closings, snow blowing, snow plows everywhere. On top of it all, it means people complaining about the storm.
This is for those that love to complain. I totally understand that it's not the best scenario when we get a storm but we do live in the Northeast. It is February, which means that it's STILL Winter. Snow is something that we have to deal with in New York. It's one of the downfalls of living in an area where palm trees don't grow.
I get that you might not have the means to pick up and move South but that is an option. You could also move to California, where it may not snow but they do deal with wild fires and earthquakes a lot more than we do. So there is that option. There is also the option of just dealing with the weather because it's something that we CAN'T control.
Basically, what I'm getting at with this post, is stop wasting your time complaining about something you have no control over. It is truly a waste of your time. And I don't mean that in a negative way, I mean that in a, life is too short to worry and or complain about things that you can't control. I know that it may be in our nature to complain but I think if we change the way we think and look at things from a different perspective it could mean a happier life for you in the long run. Yeah, I went in a different direction than you though I would with this, right? See it's a change your perspective post, not a stop complaining post.
Enjoy what you have while you can. Take a look at the snow and appreciate the beauty of it. Instead of "I have to go out and shovel/snow blow my driveway" look at it this way "I get to go out and shovel/snow blow my driveway." Think about that for just a second. There are people whom can't do that anymore. Whether they've gotten too old or simply aren't here anymore. Try that with anything that you "have" to do. Try "I get to" instead of "I have to" It really could change you for the better.
