Enjoying the moment is, possibly, not so much about braving the weather as actually going about our business irrespective of atmospheric conditions. Like any potential restriction on our existence, we more or less get to choose how we face the challenge.
Braving the weather or deciding to change plans are alternatives available invariably. Yet when we have gone about an extensive period of preparation and reached a point of ‘now or never’, it is beneficial to implement our work.
In such instances, maybe it is not so much about ‘braving the weather‘, but rather whether we do it or not. Waiting for perfect conditions before undertaking the assignment could be a chancy action, especially as all factors are rarely under our control.
Getting our opinion heard when others, for whatever reasons, would rather we remain silent, is also a case of braving the weather. Though we risk to cause upset in others by speaking up, not doing so would at such times create discomfort in ourselves.
Perhaps I have provided something to ponder here today. To share your thoughts on braving the weather, please leave a comment below.
