It seems as though summer is really here. The month of May came and went in a flash and the weather has really heated up. Here in Montreal we have already reached temperatures close to 30 degrees celsius numerous times and I have been HOT. Not just the kind of hot that comes and goes but the hot you feel in the middle of summer. The kind of hot where all you want to do is jump in the closest open water source as soon as possible.
I promise you I am NOT complaining… trust me. Let me ask you this… do you agree with me that these are the moments we block out of our memory when we are missing sunny, warm days in the midst of a gloomy winter day. The winter days when we find ourselves struggling to get out of our driveway because the snow is too darn high. I’m sure all you Canadian readers know exactly what I am talking about.
As I envision a moment pretty much exactly as I described is making me laugh out loud to myself. It’s so funny how the human mind works. It is so easy for us to glorify a positive moment in the midst of a crappy one, leading us to wish for that “better” moment to come sooner. It’s even easier to make it seem as though this glorifying moment trumps anything else when in truth…. does it really?
These are the kind of moments I like to use to reflect on trying to focus on living in the moment. Appreciating every moment for what it is. I think I am truly blessed to be able to experience multiple seasons throughout the year and I am fully enjoying this current summer heat!
What would you prefer? A super hot summers night; sticky and sleepless OR a chilly winters day full of delayed commutes because of the snow?
