Weather Report
by BJ Gallagher

“Any day I’m vertical is a good day”
…that’s what I always say.
And I give thanks for my health.

If you ask me, “How are you?”
I’ll answer, “GREAT!”
because in saying so, I make it so.
And I give thanks that I can choose my attitude.

When life gives me dark clouds and rain,
I appreciate the moisture that brings
a soft curl to my hair.

When life gives me sunshine,
I gratefully turn my face up
to feel its warmth on my cheeks.

When life brings fog,
I hug my sweater around me
and give thanks for the cool
shroud of mystery that makes
the familiar seem different and intriguing.

When life brings the snow,
I dash outside to catch
the first flakes on my
tongue, relishing the
icy miracle that is a snowflake.

Life’s events and experiences
are like the weather–
They come and go,
no matter what my preference.

So, what the heck?!
I might as well decide to enjoy them.
For indeed, there IS a time for every
purpose under heaven.

Each season brings its
own unique blessings…

"Much like the rising of the sea level lifts all ships, so the radiance of unconditional love within a human heart lifts all of life."

~Dr. David Hawkins, Letting Go


Regardless of which way we lean, it is hard not to let what is going on politically distress us.

For me, beneath the angst and agitation is a feeling of no control. I feel at the mercy of whatever unfolds and a frustration that there is little I can contribute to effect change. Helplessness is not a good feeling.

But then I remember the truth: We always have control and we are always contributing.

We can control and clean up our own thoughts, emotions, and energy so that they are in alignment with what we want to see and experience in our world.

In doing so, we are not adding to the fear and the strife. Rather, we are contributing something positive and this feels empowering. The byproduct is greater happiness and peace in our bodies and in our minds minute-to-minute and day-by-day.

We cannot control the discord in our world, but what can control the discord in our hearts and in doing so we uplift all of humanity.

Today, and every day, radiate love.

I take a deep and deliberate breath. Often.

That deep breath inward helps me to remember that I am alive. This is important to me because sometimes amidst my busy days, my worries, or my laughter I forget that the backdrop to it all is this gift called life.

When I forget, the gift fades into the background. What emerges in the foreground are frustrations, complaints, and too many to-dos! When this happens my view is distorted and I lose sight of the gift. I don’t ever want to take my life for granted.

This life we each have is our gift. Like any gift, it should be appreciated. We should give some thought and recognition to the Giver. We should see the gift as our reminder of how loved we are.

Take one deep breath in–often. Let the fulness of your life crowd out the worries. Thank God or the Universe for this precious offering. Then honor the gift by enjoying your life.
