Changing the Weather: Part 2

“Cookie of the Day!”

I recently discussed in Part 1: Changing the Weather, that there are things about us that still need to be discovered.  Life and all its twists and turns help aid us in finding them.  When things happen to us or our family that are unfortunate, our instincts aren’t to give up all of a sudden.  We have the natural instinct to fight back or resist the infractions.  It is embedded within everything that we do. 

Whether it relates to maternal instinct, paternal instinct, human instinct, survival instinct, even destiny instinct!  When most plants exposed to or experience harsh weatherization, they don’t necessarily completely die.  They enter a dormancy, that most revive from.  Its bloom can revisit with proper care and nutrients.  Struggles and difficulties don’t defeat you, they help develop your skin.  You get stronger and wiser and equipped.  They help create that new layer of resistence on your outer shell.  We are to guard thy hearts, you know.  

Protection for our core is essential in preserving energy to face the tasks at hand.  Not being moved by circumstances around you, (taking note, but not moved) just shifting into the mode that you need to be in, in order for you (and everything connected to you; i.e., family, loved ones) to be “good”.  And it sounds plain english, because that’s exactly what it is!  I’m sure that when the sun is out and things are going super great, we feel there’s nothing else to know.  Maybe except the things on our “to-do” lists.

People are satisfied when they feel safe, and their families are safe.  When things are structured and laid in plain sight, we are most confident.  But as we all should know, life is not like that.  From the beginning of time, and as well as a baby forms in the womb, we were created to adjust.  If we can practice it with our body, we can practice it with our minds, hearts, spirit.  You can discover valuable lessons of who you truly are just by how you handle things in your life.  

I failed to mention that some of the pieces you discover may not be good ones.  These are areas where you need to re-adjust your adjustments.  Remember that you want the best positive outcome for yourself/family.  Your pieces may be discovered when you become inpatient.  It will reflect.  It may be discovered when you speak.  Tone, disposition, and attitude matter!  It can be discovered in stressful encounters and how you choose to handle them could lie a piece.  Sometimes they can even be discovered unconsciously, like committing an act of kindness without first being asked or told to do so.

It can even be discovered in your work ethics, and how much you believe in what you do.  The list can go on and on, and it does.  Because each one of us are unique in our own design.  So we all adjust, learn and grow differently.  Even all with the same goal of becoming a better you, and getting the most out of your life.

*Check back next post for a personal experience sheet of some of my life’s pieces that I discovered and/or adjusted in my journey!

Changing the Weather: Part 1

Cookie of the Day!


Just as the sun is the key to dry up the land when it rains, you are your key to change the weather.  It’s truly all in your mind.  Like an exercise, you get better with time.  I know that most of you may workout or at least try often.  And the goal is usually all similar, to achieve a better you.

Things in our life transpire that make us weak and then make us strong again.  Just as the seasons go through stages that allow change and development at the exact times needed, so do we.  We are designed to know ourselves and the endless things that we can do.  We cannot limit our design due to the seasons changing.  We hold the key to the weather.  For whatever state you are in, be content.

For the seasons know just when to change, so do you.  What ever season that you are in now, is where you are in search of new pieces of yourself that has not yet been discovered.  You’ll be surprised how the human brain can will itself into survival mode.  Especially if situations shift, just like the weather.  When the climate doesn’t equal up with the news forecast, the resiliency of the land can handle it.  It knows how and what to adjust, even if it means eliminating parts.

This is the same way we should approach life.  Preserve energy needed for life’s changes.  And use the energy you have now to keep things regulated.  The season that you’re in requires you to focus.  You have things to discover new about yourself.  And the way to find them are from “discovery pieces”.

*DISCOVERY PIECES= The talents that you discovered you can do.

Not to be confused with “gifts”.

*GIFTS= Gifts are special things you know you can do, and so do others!
