Snow, Snow, Snow! What to think, just what am I to think? Punxsutawney Phil, the cute groundhog, did not see his shadow. So I’m reveling in the possibility that Phil may know what he’s doing and that Spring is around the corner.
How wonderful is his effect on me. He’s presented a possibility of light emerging that allows me to welcome today’s snow storm. It is so pretty, such a lovely scene for me when I look up from my desk. White snow everywhere covering the grey and browns of winter. I have not for a moment thought about shoveling my walk or getting someone to plow my drive. I am happily ensconced in my comfort without any feeling of how I will survive two more or maybe three more months of hard, cold, precipitous weather.
Phil, that little groundhog, has acted as a beacon of positivity whispering to me, at least it might be him or maybe myself, “Enjoy the moment. The snow is a vision worthy of the best artist to memorialize. Don’t worry about how many snowstorms there may be in the near future.” Phil says that there will not be six more weeks of winter!
All of this, dear readers, is a reminder that it is not what is, that makes us happy; it is what we project. I have allowed a groundhog fable to bring me to a better place. I often allow little things to do that. What I don’t allow any longer is for negativity to bring me down. I look for the happy and find happy. It’s taken a lifetime. My advice to you is look for the happy.
