A startled gaze starts the day, as the clouds flow away. Everyone always has to say “Isn’t this a lovely day”. As the winds shift the clouds roll in quick. The temperature drops, as the wind never stops. I know what is coming, I can feel the rain storm lunging. It is getting closer to me, in the distance I can see. But the day started out so nice, I never thought a cloud would show up twice. Weather is weird like that, it is always wise to bring hat. You never know what the day may bring; it could even begin to start icing.
So don’t look at each day in only one way, you have to roll with the punches and learn what to say. If you adapt to what is around you, then it is easy to keep your cool. Every day brings new challenges and everyday you manage the imbalances. When life throws you a curve ball, stand up to it, and when you don’t know what to do adapt to it. But always look for a compassionate way, because then you make may make a friend along the way.
