Usually the northeastern region of the US is okay for weather….hot summers, cold winters but few natural disasters. Tuesday I was standing in a building, waiting to give blood for my sister’s class and all of a sudden, I find myself feeling like I’m surfing. I’m usually bad in situations that are jarring to my senses…but I calmly waited it out.
Saturday into Sunday we’re expecting a category 2 or 3 hurricane to come barreling through NJ. I’m staying with my parents in Woodbury–and I find myself completely calm about the whole thing.
You can’t change the weather, right? You do have the option to freak out…but that won’t do anything but shave time off of your life.
Now, what I need to do is apply this sense of calm to the unemployed me. My full-time job right now is to pray, send out resumes, pray and manage my little bit of finances well…not freak out and worry about things over which I have no control.
So, mother nature, I’d like to thank you for earthquakes and hurricanes. I obviously needed them to find the peace that surpasses all understanding.
