An odd thing happened the other day. In the midst of a snow storm, a flock of robins decided to take up temporary residence on my street. They sang loudly, kept diving at steep angles, and seemed to be enjoying themselves as the snow steadily came down. The juxtaposition of the spring-like joy in the middle of winter spoke loud and clear. (You can see them in action here.)
This was a reminder to enjoy yourself despite the circumstances. It’s possible to draw upon whatever your true nature is to find your delight. Waiting on external cues may not be in your favor. Once you’re able to cultivate that elation within, you’ll never be at the mercy of what goes on around you.
