The sun is out today. It’s almost February. And I feel great. Can the sun have anything to do with that? I can’t help but to think so.
I don’t like to let my mood be dictated by the weather, cozy rainy days can be quite wonderful. But I can’t help to feel happier on bright sunny days, even if it’s not warm outside. Why is that? Why do we need to succumb to our human physical needs to change our feelings? I fight the idea that vitamins, healthy nutrition, exercise, a good night sleep can tell if I am happy or not. Shouldn't I, a.k.a, my mind, dictate my happiness? But I just can’t win the fight. I am human, and those things do affect my mood. Winter blues is a real thing.
But it’s tough to leave my good days to chance. There are things I can do to have a good cloudy day. But are they ever going to be as good? I can at least control my sleep, fitness and nutrition. So little control we humans have over our own lives. But learning to go with the wind is a daily task, that can only be accomplished by deep meditation and true understanding of humility. Maybe that’s why many take the easy road and move to LA, where the sun shines bright 99% of the time.
Thanks for reading.
