[It may look like I've stopped blogging, but in fact I've just been focusing on my other blog (an art blog), which is where much of my interest lies these days.]
Yesterday I suddenly realized I was in a bad mood. When I thought about it, it came to me that I was cranky because it's been so hot and humid for days now. I was literally letting the weather rule my life, because I was letting my thoughts about the weather color my mood.
A bit of meditation allowed me to consider how lucky I am to have air conditioning in this heat, and then I began to think about all the other things I have, and all the things so many people do not have. Synchronistically, I stumbled on this post today, and it really put things in perspective. You will not hear me complaining (much!) about the heat now. Yes it's hot and humid, yes, I dislike it, and yes, I still have a wonderful life.
If you are having a hard time at work for whatever reason, consider a quick look at the post I've linked to above. It's brief, and may just help you to "get a grip" with its wise perspective.
