"The problem is not that there are problems. The problem is expecting otherwise and thinking that having problems is a problem."
- Theodore Rubin
I woke up ready and eager to run, at least a couple of miles. But then I moved from semi- to full-consciousness, and in doing so I heard the rain. Not just light sprinkles, either. Hard rain. Even hail, I was told.
Plus, there was wind. Again, not just light wind here and there, but more like maybe 30mph or so gusts.
So we watched tv for a bit, and towards the end of the episode, the light shone through the clouds, and I decided as soon as the episode finished, I would run. And as soon as the episode finished, it had started raining and blowing just like before.
It was a sign, I think. So I'm trying to readjust my thinking. The rain was not a problem. It was an opportunity. An opportunity to try something else, like yoga or a Biggest Loser video. Or do something crafty. Or read a book. Or watch tv and cuddle with my sweetie.
Sometimes, I think, it just ain't meant to be. Maybe my sore throat will go away by tomorrow anyway.
