You Don't Control the Weather


I’ve got bad news for you: no matter how hard you try, you can’t control the weather. No amount of upset, protestation, longing sighs, or wishful thinking will blow those storm clouds away and bring out the sunshine, or turn the heat down from an oppressive 95 degrees to a pleasant 75.

Eternal optimist that I am, I have some good news for you too: the fact that you can’t control the weather shouldn’t worry you one bit. You can take comfort in the fact that you can’t and won’t be able to change the weather, and so it’s just not worth your energy.

Even better news: you can use that newly-freed energy from letting go of your disappointment about not controlling the weather and channel it into the things you do control.

It’s going to rain, whether you like it or not. But you control whether you bring an umbrella and a water-resistant coat and leave early for work to account for rainy traffic.

It’s going to be hot, whether you like it or not. But you control whether you pack extra water, bring sunscreen, and park your car in a shady spot.

All kinds of things will happen that are 100% out of your control, and that doesn’t matter. But with each of these uncontrollable elements, you decide how you prepare, engage, and respond.
